If you meet them, what on this lonely planet will you say? Including - get your tongue around the flavours of five cultures in one vibrant country; shop up a storm and bargain with the best of them; dive, bike, brave or hike the wilds - the vocab's all here; cover yourself when it comes to cultural differences; find a phrase for every festival; new edition with transliterations, grammar guide and in-depth dictionary.
