Newly updated to include a special cultural section on Asia's World City of Hong Kong.... Embarking on a trip to China without an understanding of Chinese cultural etiquette can be an exercise in futility for Western travelers. To that end, author Kevyn Townley's anecdotal China survival guide provides the fool-proof etiquette blueprint for safe passage that no traveler to China should be without! From the historical significance of a "changing" China to the unique cultural diversity of Hong Kong to the etiquette peculiarities of Chinese business practices to the rules of meeting, greeting, dining, and the Chinese language, Townley captures the essence of foreign travel and paves the wave for enjoying - and surviving - any trip to this Asian wonderland. "Our first trip to China...we know that there will be many differences, things difficult to explain, and things that just seem downright "odd," but that's all right. From the comfort of home we figure that we have the tolerance, the maturity, and the experience to adapt to whatever is coming our way. So... why is it that for so many, the actual experience falls so short of the expectation?" - from "Easy Etiquette in China & Hong Kong" Based on his own experiences during a three-year residency, Townley's personal account of life in China offers Western travelers an informative and humorously anecdotal summary of facts about China, Hong Kong, and the Chinese lifestyle. Insightful and entertaining, "Easy Etiquette in China & Hong Kong" is a non-traditional, straight-forward travel guide for business professionals, vacationers, and anyone interested in learning more about Chinese culture, traditions, and behaviors.
