Cultural Iceberg – Above and Below the Surface

Need help with my Business question – I’m studying for my class.

When visiting a different culture on vacation for a few days or even a couple of weeks you immediately notice some differences that are obvious. These are the tip of the cultural iceberg, but as you get immersed in the culture you notice so much more that is subtle.

Cultural differences come about in food, eating, punctuality, frankness, politeness, individual versus communal orientation, family hierarchy, and much more. Tell us about your experiences in both the obvious and subtle cultural differences.

This is about your traveling aboard experience only. And for people who have traveling abroad experience only.
