So you're about to head to South Korea for a few days of meetings. But you realize: you have no idea what South Korea is like. [Sale: 50% off until Saturday September 11! If you're on the fence, do pick it up sooner rather than later--or drop us a note, we're happy to answer questions.] Sure, you know where you're staying. Maybe you've got a guidebook that describes places to visit if you manage to scrape together a few hours of sightseeing. But what's South Korea really like for doing business? More practically:- How should you greet your business partners? - If you're invited to someone's house, what sort of gift should you bring?- What color wrapping paper should you use? Certain funeral-related colors should be avoided, of course. - Are there any special considerations for female travelers? - Perhaps most importantly: if you order the bibimbap with some yakkwa, what on Earth is that going to look like? South Korea: Business Traveler's Passport is designed specifically for businesspeople. It contains a couple hundred pages of information on South Korea, focusing on areas of particular concern to the business traveler. While it does contain a small amount of information on hotels and sightseeing opportunities, these sections are intentionally light--this is not a travel guide! Seriously! Instead, it has entire sections of information on: * South Korea Basics: A brief history of South Korea, with some background and historical highlights.* Country Facts: Demographics and other statistical data, with an offline map of the country.* Doing Business: Greetings & courtesies, meeting protocol, business attire, business entertaining, etc.* Women: As travelers, are there any special considerations in South Korea? As a businesswoman, are any extra measures needed? How are korean women treated in their own country?* Money: What does the money look like? How much should different service people be tipped...if at all?* Travel: Visa info, departure formalities, electrical system, etc.* Safety: Emergency numbers, notes on street crime, hospital locations, health & medical care.* Points of Interest: A few interesting museums and cultural sites, in case there's time after the meetings.* City View: Background on Seoul, with a handful of hotel descriptions.* Telephone System: The subtleties of dialing to & from South Korea. There's even a section on how to use pay phones in South Korea (without needing to read Korean).* Life Cycle: From birth to marriage to old age, what's life like?* Gift Giving: The subtleties of giving personal or business gifts.* Holidays and Festivals: Solid background on the popular holidays and festivals.* Religion: Info on South Korea's religious climate.* Superstitions and Folklore: Common superstitions, along with korean stereotypes.* Food and Recipes: Descriptions of common korean foods, along with recipes for appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts, including kimchi, gogi wan-ja jun, musangchae, bibimbap, and songpyeon.* Terms Dictionary: Over 100 words & phrases translated into Korean.* Embassies: Embassy locations and contact info for dozens of countries.
