"In Flatts Village, it's important to respect the local customs and traditions. Avoid wearing revealing clothing, especially in religious or formal settings, as it is considered disrespectful. Bermudians value politeness, so always remember to say "please" and "thank you". It's also considered rude to interrupt or speak loudly in public places. Avoid discussing sensitive topics such as politics and religion unless you are very familiar with the person you are talking to. It's also considered impolite to refuse an invitation to someone's home. If you are invited, it's customary to bring a small gift for the host. Littering is frowned upon in Bermuda, so always dispose of your trash properly. Also, remember to respect the local wildlife and refrain from feeding or disturbing the animals. Lastly, Bermudians drive on the left side of the road, so be mindful of this when driving or crossing the street. It's also important to remember that the legal drinking age in Bermuda is 18, and public intoxication is not tolerated," commented one expat who made the move to Flatts Village, Bermuda.
