Traditions on Foreign Soil

Postby Kakashi2020 » Fri Oct 12, 2018 7:24 am

Whenever I'm in another country, I would ask my host or my local friends about the household traditions when someone visits a local home. It's always good to know the proper courtesy and greetings as well as dining procedures of the locals to avoid any untoward incidents or confusion.

I agree with you on the importance of knowing the other country's culture before you visit. On my first trip to the Philippines I learned that placing the backside of an elderly person's hand on your forehead was a sigh of respect. If we all took the time to learn other cultures then maybe the world would be a better place.

I think everyone that travels to another country should do this. When traveling we should always remember that we are only guests in the country. We should always show respect and take the time to learn something about the country.

When in Rome, right? I think the least any foreigner can do is try and respect other people's traditions and lifestyle.
