Headed towards Utah's capital city for business soon? Lovely stuff! Set against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Wasatch- and Oquirrh mountain ranges, Salt Lake City is known for its wide blue skies and small-town feel, even though the city of 1.2 million people is the only city in Utah with an international airport and a flourishing metropole in its own right./p>
At TravelManor, we take great pride in tailoring seamless business journeys that allow our clients to make the most of their time abroad. Here are a few tips we share with travellers who are headed to Salt Lake City in the US state of Utah for the first time:/p>
Salt Lake City is home to many prominent businessmen of the Mormon faith. If you are meeting with one of these highly respected business folks, make sure to observe the relevant courtesies. For instance, Mormons do not drink alcohol, so steer clear or anything alcoholic over meals. Dress conservatively - women should cover their arms and wear skirts no shorter than the knee. Men can play it safe with a neat suit in a dark colour./p>
It is very convenient to travel around the city on the buses that start to cruise the streets from the early morning. Pay your fee to the driver, and be sure to carry a sufficient number of coins in a small denomination. It is not an accepted practice to ask for change./p>
In restaurants it’s customary to leave a tip - 10 to 15% of the total will be sufficient. A similar cash tip is given to taxi drivers, while the common tip amount for hotel staff is between 0.5 and 1 USD./p>
DID YOU KNOW? Salt Lake City is home to the largest genealogical library in the world. The Family History Library is run by the Mormon Church (also referred to as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). Entry is free, so you can go and spend as much time browsing and reading up as you like./p>
