Never Do These Things in Foreign Countries

52814 ratings | 5171413 views
If you don’t want to be in one of those, or better yet featured on YouTube as “that crazy tourist,” fined or even arrested, pay attention to our list of do’s and don’ts accurate in different countries of the world. “So many countries, so many customs.” Any jet-setter will agree this good old proverb is true. In the age of globalization, going places has become an essential part of our life. We’re all well aware of the fact that while visiting a foreign country, we must obey certain local traditions and common rules. Failing to do so has given a rich ground for many jokes. TIMESTAMPS Russia 0:54 Chile 1:44 Singapore 2:18 India 3:05 Japan 3:29 Mexico 4:07 New Zealand 4:39 Norway 5:25 Turkey 5:49 United Kingdom 6:29 Ireland 7:03 Germany 7:35 Kenya 8:26 Malaysia 9:16 Korea 9:35 SUMMARY - If you want to surprise your Russian girlfriend or your business partner, never give an even number of flowers as a gift. Even numbers of flowers are for grieving and funerals. - Manners matter more to the people of Chile than to other South Americans. It is extremely important not to eat anything with your fingers. - Chewing gum, for example, is banned in Singapore, so you’d better leave it at home before getting on the plane. If you break the gum rule for the first time, you may be fined for up to a $1000. - When in India, you have to keep your private life to yourself and your emotions under control. No matter how much you want to show affection to your special someone, never kiss them in public. - Similar to India, public demonstration of affection is not acceptable in Japan. Remember, there is no hugging, or even worse, kissing, in public! - A good piece of advice will be to stay as thick skinned as possible since Mexicans love making jokes and never miss a chance to do so. Don’t take things too personally. - Remember the difference between “aussies” and “kiwis.” Never mix them up! In case you didn’t know: the “aussies” stand for Australians, and the “kiwis” – for New Zealanders. - When in Norway, don’t ask questions concerning church. This may be taken for disrespect. Many people here don’t attend church, and those who do will want to keep it to themselves. - An essential thing to remember before going to Turkey is not to give anyone the OK sign. It might seem like a sign of approval to you but is considered an obscene gesture for the Turks. - British people like their pudding fresh and their queues well-organized. Don’t jump the queue. Or expect to be judged by the locals. - Do not try to play it cool and sound like Irishmen. For Irish people there is no such a thing as Irish accent; they recognize and divide accents depending on the region of Ireland they come from. - Don’t stare at people. Germans might look very attractive but try to resist the temptation of staring at Fraus on the metro. Only poorly educated and crazy people do that here. - Don’t show disrespect for religion. No matter what their religion may be, Kenyans are very devout. - For Malaysians, this is “the home of the soul” and the most sacred part of the body. Keep yourself from running your fingers through people’s hair, especially babies. - If you want to have good manners in Korea, use two hands when handing over money. When you pay for things, pass on your cash or credit card with both hands. It’s a sign of respect. Do you know any other things that are prohibited in foreign countries?

I’m not a Brit, but a Canadian who’s lived here for a couple years. Literally no one cares about what kind of head wear the Queen is wearing. If you started a conversation with that, you’d be given a look like you’re “bloody bonkers!”

Norway and Germany fits my personality...oddly. lol
I am from Norway and it's totaly okay to ask about church, many people will be kind and answer all your questions nicely. Also many people are polite and says mr. and mrs. when they meet for the first time or herr and fru as we say in norwegian, but many people are friendly and let people call them by their first name but people like the parents of your girlfriend/boyfriend are normal to call mr. and mrs. So next tim research more before you talk trash and lies about our countryes.

In America, it isn’t a major insult to throw a shoe (as in some Middle Eastern Countries) at someone! Go for it! Lol You may want to throw your shoe at Trump but don’t, many Americans want to do it but it will land everyone in FEDERAL PRISON FOREVER! Laws are serious in America. Don’t try to go over to Mexico, you probably won’t get back! Especially if you are from the Middle East or any country where your are black or brown. If you come from a Country that is mostly African and black, if you are asked by a police officer to give or do ANYTHING, DONT TALK, JUST DO WHAT THE OFFICER SAYS AND PRAY HE HAS A BODY CAMERA A DASH CAMERA AND HE IS NOT WITH A PARTNER! ALSO PRAY YOUR IN A STATE LIKE CALIFORNIA, OREGON, SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, DENVER, IDAHO, UTAH, N.DAKOTA, S. DAKOTA, WYOMING, there are probably a few more but those are the main ones for now. The one about Trump is a huge no, no and the one about the police is an absolute yes to follow and by law you can call 911 and tell them where you are and that a police car is trying to follow you but you want to find a public place to pull over and you are not going the speed limit and you are going to pull over at the next public place. Let them know you will be completely cooperative, this hopefully will save your life, no guarantees. If you were visiting Chicago or Baltimore, you would need to find aGQ magazine and dress like 1 dressed up suit and a few casual clothes and stay in the city proper.

In Korea it's not just money. If you're handing someone anything you want to use two hands. If the object is too small for two hands, just support your arm with the other hand.
