Synopsis: The clash of new and old has created a constantly shifting terrain of customs and cultures in Asia, making it difficult to determine what to expect or what is expected of you. For instance:

-The hitchhiker's gesture of raising one thumb means "Get lost" in Australia, and the V sign with the V sign with the palm held toward you is obscene.
-Even if you're not in India for business, bring business cards. People often exchange them even at social functions, since it helps the Indians pronounce Western names, and vice versa.
-There is almost no concept of privacy in China. Someone may grab a book or letter from you to get a better look at it. Floor attendants in hotels often come into rooms without knocking.
-At a formal even in Nepal, people may adorn the guest of honor with a garland of flowers called a mala.
-Be careful about complimenting people on a lovely piece of jewelry or an attractive object in the home in Pakistan. The host will feel obliged to give it to you.
-In the Philippines, don't' be surprised if people give you food to take home after a dinner party.
-In Vietnam, slurp as much as possible when eating noodles or soup, as it is polite to do so.
