3 months ago · Julieta · 0 Comment

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.

14. In China, You Shouldn’t Flip Fish On your Plate.

Local people, especially in the south of the country and Hong Kong, believe this. The most superstitious people leave the other side of the fish untouched, and others remove the bones to get to the other side.

Which of these etiquette rules would you like to adopt?
