Travelling is not always a straightforward matter. Your travel agent will set you up nicely with some nice travel deals to your favorite travel destination, such as China, France, or Thailand, but he or she will mostly neglect to inform you about how you should behave once you arrive at your chosen destination.
Because let’s face it—not all cultures are the same, and that which you deem proper behavior is not to other people in other countries. For this reason, you need to show some caution. However, do not worry! In this article, we are going to tell you about the things that you should not do in 10 very famous world destinations.
This is a sort of travel guide that deals with the acceptable and unacceptable forms of behavior while traveling, things your travel agency, the one with the tempting travel packages, will not bother to tell you about.

Russia-bound travelers should know that the people of that country are not very big fans of even number—at least not when it comes to giving and accepting flowers. This practice is considered rude.
Therefore, if you want to treat someone to a nice bouquet of flowers, make sure that you count the flowers and that the total number of all of them makes up an odd number and not an even one.
#2 – No Eye Contact in China
It might be acceptable in other parts to the world to exchange eye contact with people, but this practice is not acceptable in China. Therefore, people who are planning China as a travel destination should keep this in mind.
Eye contact in this huge country is understood by many as a sign of disrespect and it is not tolerable at all. China traveling guides should include this tip for people who don’t know about it!!
