Cultural Concerns while Travelling

The world is shrinking to the extent that we can now very easily move from one region to another within a matter of hours. We recognise the change in climate and other issues relating to what is happening around us, but often we don’t recognise that customs and actions which are regarded as perfectly acceptable at home are socially wrong or just plain rude in the country or among the people group we are now visiting.

Doing some research and learning about the country’s culture and beliefs will go a long way towards ensuring that your visit is not only worthwhile but also a pleasant experience.
