Helpful Infographic Illustrates Polite Dining Around the World

Dining customs vary from country to country, and what's acceptable behavior in one place is seen as rude in another. Luckily for us, the website Restaurant Choice released an educational infographic that explains a few do's and dont's of meals around the world. You probably have a handle on what's appropriate at home, but things quickly change when you travel. This illustrated guide is not only helpful, but an interesting comparison of seven different places.

So, for your next trip abroad, make sure you study on how to conduct yourself during a meal. It might save you from unnecessary embarrassment.
