What not to do when visiting Saint Kitts and Nevis

1/12
Marker Saint Kitts and Nevis
Business & Communication

Don’t forget to greet with ”Good morning,” ”Good afternoon" or "Good night.” Just saying "hi" or "hello" is generally considered bad manners. If you ask people how they are, be prepared for the truth instead of the generic ”I’m fine”. People don’t always say goodbye and don't often feel the need to offer an overly enthusiastic ending that is often common in western societies.
