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

Answer this Question

We asked people in Gambia 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 Gambia, it is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions. Avoid making negative comments about the country or its people, as this can be seen as offensive. Additionally, it is important to dress modestly and to avoid public displays of affection. It is also important to be aware of the local religious beliefs and to respect them. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local laws and to abide by them," said another expat in Gambia.
