Never Do These Things in Foreign Countries

54018 ratings | 5300821 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?

Greetings from Texas! I have lived and traveled/travelled abroad. Americans, when in Europe, please refrain from speaking loudly in public places, such as restsurants, on buses, etc. Most Europeans speak in softer voices. For example, if you are dining at a restsurant, keep your conversation within the confines of your table. Too many times I have overheard Americans speaking at other tables. Don't be a loud-mouth American! It is considered rude, crass and crude.

I am a Kiwi and we joke about Rugby, Lord of the Rings and the Queen!!!!!! get your facts right! btw we go bare foot sometimes because it is so warm and sunny and beachy here, NZ is the best! seriously, you can actually annoy some people by getting most of these facts wrong. I am proud to be from New Zealand, dont you make other people think we are all stuffy and whinging, because, trust me, a true blue new zealander, we are the Exact Opposite. If you scroll thru these comments, you will realise how many people you have hurt\annoyed by doing this.

Hugging and kissing in public won’t land anyone in jail in India. Though kissing in public is an offence but hugging is absolutely ok. Even kissing the spouse is ok too. But in practicality Indians are more forward in kissing and hugging in public.

The Chilean part is all wrong. There's no problem if you take and eat fries with your fingers. The part of the fork... to be honest, we don't know the difference. Licking your fingers??? No problem, AT ALL. I have no idea they asked to, but it is not the common rule.

I am from India and trust me there is no law for showing public display of affection. As people are a bit conservative you might get some awkward looks but there is absolutely no law against it and in developed cities like Delhi and Mumbai people show love openly.

In Iran 1) we never go to the house with shoes i think its just bad to do why would you even go in with shoes? 2) we always want to have guests over even if we have just met them. If they're tourists we definetely let them stay the night but for your relatives having guests over is like having a party so staying for the night as a non-stranger is a bad thing and considered a lot of work for the host and wasting the host's time for the guest 3) we always love to make jokes and ironies. Irony is like a culture in iran lol but yeah never be too serious 4) some households are traditional where they'll sit on thick blankets that are lying on the ground and lean on a pillow against the wall or for example lay a table cloth on the ground to eat and lay down comforters to sleep on the ground so if your faced with these things dont be grossed out or feel weird its pretty normal 5) also there is a thing called "taarof" where for example you say hey come lets have dinner but you dont really have a big dinner at home and the person getting asked is not supposed to say yes or be like YEAH LETS GO they're supposed to say oh sorry I can't come it will be a lot of work for you how about you come to my house? And the other person will again say the same thing this goes back and forth until they split up and go home
