Greece Local Customs: 236 reviews and 186 photos

learn some Greek, its so appreciated. drink raki if you can, its a great icebreaker. complement the chef in family meals. say yiamas for cheers. dont say that any of greek culture has come from the Turks: greek coffee is not just the same as turkish coffee, and their music is NOT inspired from Turkish. Talk about football a lot. admire their country. drive on the right. smile at policemen, act thick, flirt a lot especially on scooters. only drive a scooter if you can, dont bother wearing a helmet you will look stupid, if you dont feel safe dont drive. dont drink and drive, greek ambulance services pick up greeks first. get insurance. dont take drugs, dont steal, dont insult a family.
