Traveling to a foreign land can be somewhat awkward if you don’t know the local customs. Also things that are okay to do in the U.S. may be culturally unacceptable in another country. With that in mind, Russia has published a tourism guide for travelers and it’s got some interesting advice such as “how to be a good human” and “Woman stretching hands when meeting.”
Not only is this tourist guide for individuals visiting Russia, there are helpful tips for Russian natives traveling the globe. The goal is avoid causing an “incident.” In Japan, they are advised ‘don’t dip the sushi rice into the soy sauce.’ Russian travelers are also advised to not be offended by the salty language of the people of Greece, apparently they curse like sailors.
