Traditions and cultures change in every few miles. And, when we visit a foreign country for the first time, the lifestyle that we follow, suddenly starts to seem very different from those people.
Be it the food or outfits, the way of entertainment or the way of greeting, every country has its own way. The diversities at different land pieces have been combined to form the beautiful world which is worth visit. We should definitely meet and observe different people, know their culture and collect real experiences out of it.
So, if you are inspired enough to travel the world, and have these seven countries on your bucket list, you must know the way you will be greeted by people when you step in their nation.
So, if they show you their tongue, don't take it for teasing, it's their way of welcoming guests from other countries.
They don't want to know where you're going or what's your purpose of coming to their country. This is their polite way to make you feel comfortable and greeted.
This is the most humble way of greeting guests regardless their age and gender.
Generally, raising one of the eyebrows is considered a sign of doubt but in Micronesia, it is an expression of addressing their guests.
It is totally weird for us, but when we visit New Zealand, they bring you close to them at the very first meeting and greet you by shaking hand, rubbing nose and forehead. And, it is same for everyone, regardless, gender, age and any other factor.
The information is worth sharing. Do share it with your friends and family.
