It’s no wonder why Greece is a dream vacation for any traveler. But before you live that dream, here are a few Things NOT To Do in Greece!
1. Don’t Wear Killer Heels
The Greek government has actually banned high heels as they are slowly damaging ancient areas.
2. Don’t Drop Your Drawers
We all love to moon our buddies on a trip, but it is actually a chargeable offense in Greece! You could even face jail time if caught being cheeky.
3. Don’t Be HIV Positive!
In an effort to curb the alarming rate of HIV, Greek police can detain people they suspect of being HIV positive and force them to take a test. Landlords can also evict people if they’re HIV positive.
4. Don’t Forget Cash
Even in restaurants credit cards are seldom accepted, (even if they say they are!) So always have cash on you or ensure that an ATM is close-by.
5. Don’t Flush Paper!
The toilet system in Greece is not as advanced as other European destinations. Here they throw used toilet paper in the bin. Yes, even the ‘number two’ kind!
6. Don’t Wave!
Don’t wave with an open palm because in Greece it’s an insult rather than a greeting.
7. Don’t Go Astray…
Don’t forget your meds if you’re allergic to cats or dogs, because the Greek streets are overrun by strays.
8. Don’t Be So Uptight
Apart from on public transport or cities, it’s very unlikely you’ll experience theft in Greece. This crime is so rare because in Greek culture it’s seen as a gravely embarrassing act.
9. Don’t Be Hasty!
If you’re accustomed to early lunches and dinners, relax! Lunch at three and dinner at nine is perfectly acceptable. Always expect bread as Greeks don’t consider it lunch without it.
10. Forget Early Nights
Forget about heading out at eight and partying till one in the morning, That’s when they finish dinner here! They party from after midnight until the sun comes up.
