Geography & Culture

If you want to know more about different cultures, you could have a look at the World guide to cross-cultural etiquette. This may be particularly useful if you teach a travel or tourism subject.

The site also provides some tools for understanding your own culture, by exploring the values, communications styles and other elements that guide actions, interactions and reactions.

This site offers the chance to ask questions, read reviews, test your cutlural knowledge with weekly quizes and access useful resources for travel.

Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and many of the other big name travel guides have websites too which can offer good, independent advice on cultures. Think it is always a good idea to have some knowledge about the different customs of a destination before you visit.
