One of the best parts of being a world traveller is getting to experience new cultures and traditions. For me, the stranger the better. Hence I’ve done India, Thailand and some random countries in Europe; just me mingling with the locals, guidebook in hand. But there’s things that the guidebooks don’t always tell you. Things we take for granted here in the West, that doesn’t really fly in the East.
In fact, they could get you in some serious trouble.
