My Experience With Dining Etiquette Workshop:

I have actually saved this image on my phone to remember the setup in case I ever need it.
- France: Do not split the bill. Either offer to pay entirely or someone else will. Rest your hands above the table and not on your lap. Break bread with fingers and do not bite into it. Italy: Avoid milk beverages post a meal, go for espresso instead. Never add extra Parmesan on your pizza. Over and above the service charge already added in your bill, you could tip 5-10% for exceptional service.
- Thailand: Do not eat any rice based dish with fork. Only use it to push the food onto the spoon. It is very common to share food. Never take the last bite from the common serving bowl.
- China: Tips are not encouraged. Leave a small quantity of food on your plate to show that your host treated you well. Arrive on time and be dressed well out of respect for your host.
- Japan: No Tips. It is considered rude. Never hold the chopsticks vertically or cross them. After you’ve eaten the meat balls, sip the soup directly from the bowl.
