Stop Doing These 15 Things in Other Countries

Every country has its own laws, traditions, rules, and specific features that might seem weird to the people of other cultures. So when going on a trip, you’d better learn information about the etiquette rules and traditions of the country you’re going to visit. For example, you can’t buy or sell chewing gum in Singapore. And that’s just one of many places that have things you should never do and that totally go against what might be normal for you or me.

– In Italy, it’s considered uncouth to order white coffee – or any coffee made with milk – after breakfast time. This is because traditionally in Italy, drinking milk after a meal is thought to be bad for digestion.
– In Japan, great customer service is the normal standard, not something a waiter can just choose to do if they want a little extra money.
– You can’t buy or sell chewing gum in Singapore. This ban started back in 1992 as a way to clean up Singapore’s streets, movie theatres, schools, and parks.
– The saguaro cactus is Arizona’s official state flower. Don’t cut it down, unless you wanna face up to a 25-year prison sentence.
– Unless you’re on or somewhere near the sandy beaches of Barcelona, wearing a bikini is a huge no-no in this colorful Catalonian city.
– Gobbling up every last morsel on your plate isn’t necessarily illegal in China, but it is considered somewhat rude.
– If you’re fighting a cold, allergies, or just some really bitter winter winds, sometimes blowing your nose in public just has to happen. But if you’re in France, try to make it to the bathroom before you blow that honker of yours.
– In Australia, hopping into the backseat instead of the front passenger seat is pretty rude. Basically, you’ll look like a snob who wants to be chauffeured in stark silence instead of making small talk with the driver up front.
– Giving someone a dozen roses or flowers in even numbers is considered a major faux pas in Russia because even-numbered flower bouquets are usually present at funerals.
– In India, using your left hand while exchanging money, handing over food, or shaking a person’s hand is considered incredibly rude and, well, really gross.
– Feeding pigeons some breadcrumbs may seem harmless, but doing this in Venice can set you back anywhere from 70-700 bucks if you’re caught!
– You definitely don’t want to be caught wearing camouflage in several of the Caribbean Islands. It’s because their police officers wear camo.
– Don’t step on money in Thailand. On baht, you’ll find the face of the country’s reigning monarch. Stepping on these faces is a big no-no here and is considered demeaning to the royal family.

  1. Hey guys, what’s a really curious tradition in your country that people from abroad find super weird?

  2. As a South African,using your left hand is considered disrespectful especially when greeting an adult or giving and receiving something from them,but when you are a leftie nobody minds if u do that

  3. Now days even few indians do not know that they shouldn't give things in left hand so you guys don't have to worry

  4. I am an Indian and you are wrong about india you shouldn't give anything in left hand not because it is being rude to the other person but it is because it is like disrespecting the thing you are giving because left hand is bad luck

  5. You are spreading misinformation about India. Yes right hand is considered sacred in some auspicious works . But left is not the hand used for cleaning. Any hand can do any work.
