Etiquette

There are some rules of etiquette in Côte d'Ivoire.

  • Greetings Shake hands with men, women and children when meeting for the first time and when saying goodbye. If you meet someone you have met before, and are on friendly terms, two kisses on each cheek are fine.
  • Bargaining Bartering over the price at a market is de rigueur, but not in places where the price is written down and fixed (though you can always try).
