How not to behave badly abroad?
¤Greetings
How should you behave when you meet someone for the first time?An American or Canadian,shakes your hand firmly while looking you straight in the eyes.In many parts of Asia,there is no physical contact at all.In Japan,you should bow,and the more respect you want to show,the deeper you should bow.In Thailand,the greeting is made by pressing both hands together at the chest,as if you are praying and bowing your head slightly.In both countries,eye contact is avoided as a sign of respect.
¤Clothes
Many countries have rules about what you should and shouldnt wear.In Asian and Muslim countries,you shouldn't reveal body,especially women who should wear long-sleeved blouses and skirts below the knee.
In Japan,you should take off your shoes,when entering a house or a restaurant.Remember to place them neatly together facing the door you came in.This is also true in China,Korea,Thailand and Iran.
