For those who travel regularly to different cultures, you know the nightmare of arriving in a new country and realising that you don’t know some important local customs. I’m not talking about the customs officials at the airport, but rather issues like do you tip the taxi driver, and if so, how much. Do you tip the porter at the hotel, or the waitress at the restuarant?
Then, you probably also know the frenzy of trying to work out the power adaptors and trying to get your laptop juiced up (its battery-life died somewhere over the Indian Ocean, right in the middle of an important email).
OK, so maybe you don’t care, but I have just found two great websites, and need a place to put them so I can remember them:
- International Tipping Guide
- International power adaptor guides: 1 or 2
- Worldwide Phone plugs Guide
- Global Dialing Codes
While doing the research for the above sites, I came across a great one that seems to list everything in one place: http://www.kropla.com/.
