Product description

Culture Smart! provides priceless nuggets of cultural information on Nepal not found in a standard guidebook. Whether you are looking to secure a business deal, enrich your travels, or simply better understand Nepal, its people and customs, Culture Smart! provides the information in a clear and highly readable guide. Rather than get bogged down with where to stay, where to eat, and where to go; provide yourself with the knowledge of what makes the country tick and experience Nepal as a local. Culture Smart! provides rare insights, and practical guidance, into cultures. The values, behaviour and customs of peoples have been formed over centuries which is why the unique information in Culture Smart! guides do not date in the same way as ordinary travel guides. Culture Smart! enables you to step into a world untouched by other guidebooks.
