17 Things You Shouldn’t Do Abroad!
France – Don’t talk or ask about money (asking about money is impolite in many countries, especially in France).
Ukraine – Don’t give even number of flowers (in most Slavic countries, people bring even number of flowers to the cemeteries).
New Zeland – Don’t honk otherwise you’ll insult people (honking is often intended to insult another drivers).
Japan – Don’t leave tips (provide the best service is normal in Japan, without waiting for the tips).
Mexico – Don’t get offended at locals’ jokes (they love to make jokes and they are really fun).
Norway – Don’t ask about going to church (this question would be rude to ask cause many Norwegians don’t go to church).
Turkey – Don’t show OK gesture cause it’s very offensive (this is an obscene gesture).
UK – Don’t ask how much people earn (this can make people uncomfortable).

Singapore – Don’t eat in public transport, don’t feed birds and don’t throw garbage and don’t spit on the street (also here manners matter).
USA – Don’t forget to leave tips (it is obligatory and there are differences for any service you use).

Hungary – Don’t click glasses when toasting (it’s an old habit, but some people still prefer to avoid especially when drinking beer).
China – Don’t give clock or umbrella as a present (it is believed this bring bad luck).
