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

Answer this Question

We asked people in Bogor 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!...

"In Bogor, it is important to be mindful of cultural norms and customs. It is considered impolite to point with your index finger, so it is best to use an open hand when gesturing. It is also important to dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites. Additionally, it is important to be respectful when taking photographs, as some people may not want their picture taken. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local language and to be respectful when speaking to locals," remarked another expat in Bogor, Indonesia.
