Dining Etiquette Across the Globe [#Infographic] (new countries)

A while ago i published an article titled Dining Etiquette Across the Globe [#Infographic]. Now it’s time for part two with new countries included: United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Poland, Vietnam, and Egypt.

The previous published infographic covered the dining etiquette in the following countries: Portugal, France, Japan, Italy, India, Thailand, and China.

As you can see different countries from different continents in both infographics. And many interesting habits compiled by The Restaurant Choice.

As I said it is nice to know the proper dinner manners in countries you are visiting (especially if there for a longer period). And, what may be common sense in one country, could be considered rude in another one.

The habits differ in terms of utensils (and how they are used), tipping, sharing or showing appreciation.

It’s great that we are different – and we can definitely use any travel, or article like this one to find out new things about different people, countries and customs – but it is even better to try to understand others and respect their way of doing things.

And, as I know my blog is read by people from all over the world, I want to ask you to share tips/interesting stuff regarding the dinner/table etiquette in your part of the world. What do you think others should know about your country/city and its dinning habits?

  3. I’m agree with Bhushavali. But do you know the secret??

    The secret is we never forgot to eat with our hand wherever we go, how far we go.
