Saudi Arabia Local Customs: 97 reviews and 78 photos
If you're visiting a Saudi family, or invited to a Saudi occasion, don't look in the eyes of women directly. They'd think you're staring at them or flirting. Also, never be the first to shake hand with women. Some women really don't like to exchange hand shake with men. So wait for a woman to extend a hand, otherwise, just say hi or salaam.
My family is conservative, where once I invited a guy I met in a conference. So I gave him this tip. He found it a bit difficult not to shake hand with my sister and mother. So he nodded his down like Chinese and said hi,lol.
