When traveling abroad, there are so many exciting things to anticipate. The cuisine, the people, the culture, the buildings, music, fashion, and more may go on and on. There are so many beautiful things to anticipate when we travel to a new nation that we seldom consider other vital aspects to consider before visiting a foreign country. Other nations have their customs and regulations that we may not be aware of.
Many Asian nations, on the other hand, will serve your meal with a pair of chopsticks rather than a fork and knife folded in a napkin as we are used to in America. Chopstick usage varies by nation and must be followed accordingly.
You’ll be amazed to learn that improperly using your chopsticks in Korea is considered impolite and even dangerous. Playing with your chopsticks is not permissible. The chopsticks help you put the food into your mouth, but keeping it on the chopsticks is considered bad manners, and eating rice from a vertical position is thought to bring about death.
