"Never place you hand on a..." Singapore Local Custom Tip by superjonty

Singapore Local Customs: 232 reviews and 163 photos

Never place you hand on a childs head anywhere in Asia, because the head is the highest part of the body, and is sacred. Also, never leave your chop-sticks pointing out of your bowl in a V shape, because it is similar to insence sticks burning at some ones funeral.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
