Malaysia - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture Reviews
I actually read this after my trip to Malaysia. It's pretty good: I think in broad strokes, it gets most of the important things correct. However, there were a lot of things I learned about on my trip, whether from simple observation, or from talking to locals, that were not covered here, but which should have been covered. It also fails to get the *feel* of the place right.
If you have never been to South-East Asia and Malaysia is the first country you visit, this is a book for you, as you will find a good wrap-up of dos and don'ts while visiting the country, things that are important for you to show respect and courtesy to locals, and for you to earn the respect of the locals as well.
This book is okay. There are some important information provided. Some of the recommendations regarding interactions with the locals is worthwhile.
This is the perfect answer to learning the dos and don'ts before arriving in Malaysia. It will help me to better understand the customs and acceptable behavior as a visiting foreigner.
Book was informative. Shipping and seller were on point. Great work!
I'm planning on visiting Malaysia in a few months, which is why I read this book. I'll probably be in a better position to write a review after I return from my vacation. That said, I found the book very informative. The author emphasized the importance of understanding how structured and polite Malaysian society is and how ethically and religiously diverse the nation is. He also gives detailed advise on attending and hosting business meetings and attending and hosting entertainment.
For someone who never visited malaysia but as to deal professionaly with with malaysian people for the first time, this book was helpful and has prevented some faux-pas. It easy to read and has great information for firts time visitors.
This pocket sized little book covers general travel advice such as food and where to stay. But it also does a little more than that - it explains how not to put your foot in it when communicating with the locals.
