Indonesia Local Customs: 123 reviews and 89 photos

Okay listen up!!! Don't show the bottom of your feet to the locals, don't shake with your left-hand, don't touch a person on the head, don't blow your nose in public, don't piont at some one directly, don't stand around with your hands on your hips. Be friendly and smile, always greet people, even if it's on the street. they will appreciate it. Don't get angry and make a big fuss (anger doen't go so well in their culture, they don't really know how to deal with it). Learn some of the language, it will make tourists look better and you will get more respect. Always hagle never settle for a price. You are expected to hagle.
