Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it. I am more of an arm-chair traveller lol. I have so many books on countries I probably will never visit like Nepal despite always having been fascinated by it. I have never once been disappointed by any of the Culture Smart books on various countries. I thnk if you're planning on going to any country, try and find a copy of the Culture Smart if they have it available because it's not a heavy book,just a narrow pocket book you can easy carry in your bag and it divides it into food, people, customs,'s a snapshot of the most important facts without being boring! Also nicely illustrated and the price is right.
