Etiquette Around the World

Etiquette Around the World

It goes without saying that it is good form to respect social practices and norms when in a country that’s not your own. “Do as the Romans Do”, as some might say. There is no need to give up your own individuality, identity or ideology, but it would definitely be appreciated by locals hosts, if we made an effort to take an interest in local customs, beliefs or practices. 

As the pandemic rages on at the point of writing, physical travel can seem so far away. As we look forward to the next time we set foot on foreign shores, delighting in new, shared experiences, it seems as good a time as any to familiarise ourselves with etiquette around the world. Here, CXC has compiled a list which can hopefully serve as general knowledge, provide insight, or show us something new/surprising.
