5 things business travellers need to know about Miami

In 2010, Miami was ranked seventh in a study that sought to establish the influence of finance, commerce, culture, entertainment, fashion, education, and other sectors of the economy of the cities around the world to the global economy. Despite being located on the Atlantic coast in Southern Florida and thus ideal for tourism industry; the city has been able to attract other sectors of the economy with a measure of success. For the business traveller that want to get to the city, below are some of the things he will need to know.

1. Miami is more than Miami Beach

Miami Beach is popular with the Hollywood movie makers and thus present Miami as a city for lazing around on the beach picking up beautiful girls. Well, it is not1 80% of Miami Residents do not even love the beach. They are a hard working lot - perhaps more than New Yorkers. Trust me; you will find some very talented businessmen in the US.

2. It is the most culturally diverse city in the US

In the City of Miami, you will find people talking their native languages. From Spanish, Russian, and English to Chinese, Japanese, and Thai; you will find people who will give you business just because you have made an effort to learn their language. Before travelling to the city, do a background research on the people you will be conducting business with.

3. How to get to Miami

A taxi ride from the Miami International Airport (MIA) to Downtown Miami will cost you $22 and $32 to South Beach. The airport is located about 5 miles from Downtown and 13 miles from Miami Beach. Renting a car at the airport is the most efficient way to get around the city of Miami due to its geographical spread.

4. The Weather

Miami is really sunny and humid. If you are a business traveller, pack only a few business suits. The rest of your clothes should be beach-wear. The city is close to the Caribbean than most people think and thus boasts a tropical climate, almost similar to the Caribbean weather.

5. It is expensive

Like all resort cities, Miami is an expensive city. The hotels, the meals, the taxis, and all the other essentials you need to have an easy time while conducting your business will probably cost you a small fortune. If you want to make a saving, look for accommodation outside the city and then you can drive to the city from there.

Miami is the most beautiful city in the US - yea, even more than LA. Its Atlantic Coastline coupled with tropical sun makes it popular with businessmen that want to mix pleasure with business. Make sure you follow their example.
