Etiquette for the Avid Traveler

Traveling can be a very fun and exciting experience. However, you need to learn more about the place you are visiting to avoid being rude to the locals. Researching in advance and practicing a few actions and lines will help you show more respect, thereby making your trip more pleasurable. Here are some guidelines that will keep you safe and sane.

On Greeting

Depending on which country you visit, you will have to do a variety of greetings and salutations. For example, if you are going to France, you will greet strangers with kisses on the cheek. The rest of the nation gives two kisses, while Paris offers you 4. Shaking hands can also be done. In Japan or China, you will need to bow to show respect when meeting people for the first time.

Try to learn a word or two when greeting. For example, you can say "bonjour" or "good day" to a person you meet. Also learn other translations of "please", "thank you" and "goodbye". You can learn more about the language by searching the internet and chatting with some of the locals. Bring a dictionary just in case.
