Travel Books Beijing – Culture Shock!

Travel Books Beijing Review – When I first came to Beijing as a backpacker, I was shocked to learn that there are so much differences in culture. Though I am a Singaporean Chinese, we do not share the same cultural values and etiquettes as the Mainland Chinese. This is more acute when I started to work and do business here.

I needed help!



And that was when I started to look for books on how to manage such cultural differences for my small business in Beijing and China.

And the best book so far on thic matter is Culture Shock! Beijing: A Survival Guide to Customs and Etiquette.
Culture Shock! Beijing: A Survival Guide to Customs and Etiquette

Simply said, it is a good book with many real examples on how to behaveproperly in Beijing. This book is cheap and worth the money especiallywhen I have used the knowledge to enhance my business effectivenesshere.

This book really taught me to make friends and build network for mybusiness in Beijing. I learn that without good network or “guanxi” inChina, it is virtually impossible to be successful.

It’s more “who you know” that is more important than “what you know”: that matters in business in Beijing and China, in general.
