Watch: Different ways of greeting someone in different countries
Do you hug someone that you meet for the first time? I was definitely surprised when I was showered with hugs during a first meeting. The Chinese tradition is more formal and not so "warm" by comparison. Here's a video from Stopkiddinstudio where foreigners in Taiwan explain how greeting is done in their home countries, in a fun way. Take a look.
Did you like the video? It doesn't cover all the countries, but it's enough to remind us that customs are different everywhere and it helps to know a bit more when you travel or meet someone from another country.
As for me, I'm used to hugging friends now, but it also depends on who the friend is.
