One of the most beautiful things about travelling lies in experiencing in foreign lands, all the things that make us different, and all the things that show we are just the same. Asia alone has a colourful palette of traditions, with fascinating differences in the definitions of manners and accepted behaviours. But it’s also easy to take embarrassing missteps and offend someone accidentally when you are unfamiliar with the local traditions of the land.
To help you become the best kind of traveller, the kind who shows complete respect and manners for the culture of each place you visit, we’ve put together a Cultural Etiquette Guide to Asia with DO’s and DON’Ts for each country. Learn how to be less suaku in these favourite destinations that Singaporeans already love and frequent, plus we’ve included a couple of destinations on the fringe.
