40 Tourist No Nos from around the World

Certain laws and manners are the same all over the world, but there are also many things that may be absolutely fine in your country, but can have a hugely different (and often quite rude) meaning in another country. Did you know that you can’t wear camouflage in Barbados for example? That you shouldn’t eat with your hands in Italy? It’s also incredibly insulting to give a German person German wine, were you aware of that? All of these things, and loads more, can land you in serious trouble (or even jail in some cases!)

Here are we have put together the complete list of what not to do on your travels around the world. Whether you’re travelling to the United Arab Emirates this summer, Asia, Europe or the USA, make sure you check through this infographic and learn what the local ‘rules’ are in each destination.
