What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Accra?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Accra if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"It is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions when visiting Accra. It is considered rude to point with your finger, so it is best to use an open hand when gesturing. It is also important to dress modestly, as revealing clothing is considered inappropriate. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local religious customs and to be respectful of religious sites. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local language and to avoid speaking loudly or using offensive language," wrote a member who made the move to Accra, Ghana.
