Hello, Noah from Thailand here. In Thailand we have a different way to say hello from western countries. Have you ever heard of 'Wai'? It's the way we greet in Thailand and say 'Sawaddeekrab' if you are a male or 'Sawaddeekha' if you are a female. You can follow the link below to see more about Wai. ;)

Hi, in my country (iran) ,shaking hand is very common and show person's politness ,however iranian people like all other people in the world kiss and hug each other in ceremonies specially in norooz(iranian new year).

In india we say namstey or hello.

Here in Italy, on the contrary, we are famous to be very friendly and warm people... but, in the northern part (where I live too) we are a little bit colder than in the southern! However, we're used to hug and kiss twice each other on the cheeks! So, not so different from british way! 
I hope to be comprehesible enough with my english! :)
