Etiquette

  • Transport Commuters will cram onto a minibus rather than wait for the next ride – don't take offense if your personal space is suddenly split in half.
  • Greetings Upon entering a room or vehicle a greeting such as 'good morning' or 'good afternoon' is expected. When meeting a Bajan for the first time, a handshake is appropriate, regardless of gender.
  • Speaking Despite being an outgoing place, Bajans prefer to maintain a soft tone in conversation.
  • Timekeeping Bajans are notoriously late for everything – if you really need something at a set time, be very explicit about it.
