Etiquette

  • Politeness Valued in all instances. Be sensitive to the fact that wealth inequalities and life opportunities here can be extreme.
  • Tipping Most people in service industries will not be well paid so tipping is expected and greatly appreciated.
  • Beggars While giving to beggars is not recommended it's difficult to remain unmoved by the plight of the many poor and homeless people you will encounter.
  • Respect Above all, treat people with respect regardless of their race or outward appearance.
