by Henry Miller Nov 16, 2017

A lot of things can go wrong when you visit another country. Getting food poisoning, losing your passport, getting lost in an airport and missing your flight, falling in love with a royal who just wants to live a normal life with you back at your apartment (they can be so clingy), but there is simply nothing worse than the stomach-churning awkwardness of accidentally insulting someone because you don’t understand cultural taboos. We all want to set a positive example for what people think of when they think of our native countries, but a bit of stumbling is inevitable when navigating a new place with its own cache of insults.

Thankfully, Globehunters has put together this infographic on what not to say while visiting some of the most popular tourist countries in the world.
