"Touch me not" Local Life Tip by ddevronn
Local Life, Istanbul: 38 reviews and 49 photos
Turkish people are extremely tactile! They will usually have one hand on your arm or shoulder while talking. If you try moving away they really may not notice that you're uncomfortable and just get closer to you. If they understand that you are disturbed by this, they tend to get really offended. Just play along and try forgetting about it.
