When going on a trip, experienced tourists learn information about the etiquette rules and the sights of the country they are going to visit. Because if you don’t know the subtleties of the rules that the locals have, you might find yourself in an awkward situation. For example, you might insult a French man if you use the “Okay” gesture with him. And if you eat a hamburger with your hands in Chile, nobody will sit next to you.

GIGGAG wants to keep you safe from these situations with this article about the etiquette rules every tourist should know.

The famous gesture for “okay” is interpreted in Japan as “money” and in France as “zero.” So, even by using a small gesture, you can insult a French person by calling them “nothing.” You can get a bad response to the famous “rock & roll” gesture in Italy, since this means that a person’s wife is a cheater.
