Most people like to travel and see the world. Getting to experience new places and meet people of different cultures is a truly enriching experience. You could study a foreign country's language and culture day and night and you wouldn’t have the same experience and being there. It's definitely a must. A basic understanding of the rules and etiquette of a particular place is vital.Particular actions, words, or even your outfit can be offensive in other countries. Did you know, for example, that an OK gesture is offensive in Brazil? Or, that, in other South American countries, it is rude not to keep your hands on the table while eating? In Spain or Italy, you should remember and respect the siesta, be polite and hold the door open for people behind you and thank people for doing so for you.
These rules are very simple. However, people often don't follow them, simply because they don't know about them. Don’t make the same mistakes! Check out the infographics below which outline crucial dos and don'ts of international traveling etiquette.
