Culture Smart! Sri Lanka outlines this fascinating island-nation s rich and complex history, and reveals the forces that have shaped its sensibility and development over the years. It guides you through the beliefs, attitudes, and customs of the people you will meet, and gives practical advice on how best to proceed in unfamiliar situations. Known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean, this resource-rich, lovely island just off the southern tip of India is full of contrast and diversity. Despite the lingering tension between the different religious and ethnic groups in the wake of a bloody civil war, and the glaring inequality between the wealthy elite and rural villagers, all Sri Lankans share a great respect for family, home, and friendship, and pride in their beautiful country. In return, politeness, respect, and a genuine attempt to understand their culture, and acceptance of their relaxed pace of life, are key to gaining their acceptance. Whether you come for business or for pleasure, Culture Smart! Sri Lanka is the ideal travel companion. By offering insights into Sri Lankan daily life, at home and in the workplace, and describing what Sri Lankans enjoy and how they interact socially, it will greatly enrich your experience among this resilient, welcoming people.
