One of the most important keys to successful travel is doing your research. Of course you’ll need to answer the obvious questions—where to stay, what to see and how to avoid being arrested, but there is also the question of subtle common customs.
Being respectful of hosts, locals and the culture is imperative. The last thing any traveler wants to do is present as an ignorant tourist who didn’t bother to read up on social norms. As a quick guide, Zendesk put together this infographic with a small sampling of some etiquette tips for business travelers, vacationers and everyone in between. It is always recommended that you do research beyond this list, but it makes for a good read—who knew shirt pockets were off-limits in the UK?
