10 Useful Tips to stay in China



This article will save you from a possible shame or even humiliation. We present a list of 10 things, which in any case do not need to do if you want to get a good dating in China. Please read our advice and do not forget about them.

10 Useful Tips to stay in China

1. Never accept a compliment graciously

You may find yourself in an uncomfortable position when, after a compliment the hostess at the expense of a delicious dinner, and she in turn tells you: "No, no, you dinner was just awful." Or you can tell my mom that her son is very smart and handsome guy, and she tells you that he is stupid and terrible. But these people are not trying to be rude and discourteous, on the contrary they are polite and modest. The moral is if you want a better and deeper understanding of the culture, it is necessary to apply a little less boasting and putting their positive qualities on display.

2. Never place a person in an awkward position

The worst thing that you can do in China - it publicly humiliate, or make inhabitant feel uncomfortable. Having made this, you put a person in an awkward position. Never point out errors, do not yell at people in public. Although such a rule, I think can be attributed to any country, no one would have been nice if they were publicly humiliated. But the good news is that you actually can also help a person to acquire the respect of others, if the right moment to praise him. Your mercy is much appreciated.

3. Never get angry in public

Public displays of anger perceived Chinese disapproval, and this is embarrassing, what they may encounter, especially if foreign tourists are angry. Note that this behavior is directly related to the public humiliation of the Chinese, especially the owners of those places where you are, avoid it by any means. The Chinese are very sensitive to harmony, so you have to go all out to try to be polite and patient.

4. Never for the first time do not refer to a man named

The Chinese, like other peoples of the world, there is a name. But in China the first time people are turning it by name, and not, as we used to, by name. Family, exactly as the team for this nation takes precedence over the individual. For example, John Smith, who lives somewhere in Kentucky, in Shanghai will be known as John Smith, and if you came to Li Ming, then be sure to contact him should Mr. Lee, not Mr. Ming.

Unlike people living in the west, the Chinese not too feels comfortable calling each other by name. Only members of the family or the closest people ever addressed to the person by name Ming. However, before the Chinese name can be prefixed lâo - old  - old to show their closeness and familiarity.

5. Never take food sticks in the wrong direction

Next time, sitting down at the table to the Chinese hostess, you may notice that the spoon - it is simply non-existent tradition. This is because the Chinese table for all the food put themselves or others using sticks, you need to flip the tip down, and then just put yourself or others at the plate.

6. Never drink alcohol before, without proposing a toast

Chinese banquet comprises from 8 to 10 and serves meals and a lot of alcohol. Sometimes you drink rice wine, and sometimes Máo Tái, known by the fact that as soon as possible knock out a few foreigners. Easiest way to slow down is to watch the Chinese etiquette, which suggests that before you take a drink, a person is obliged to propose a toast. This not only helps you to not get drunk too fast, but so you still vykazhite helpful hosts. However, if someone says toast «gân bçi», beware.

«Gân bçi» means "bottoms up", so you will need to drink all the drink very quickly. But do not worry. In reply, you can always tell shuí yì, which means "as you wish" and make only a small sip.

7. Never let someone else pay the bill for him not poborovshis

Many western tourists are surprised getting into a Chinese restaurant and watching the picture of utter chaos and noisy scenes. What's really going on: it comes time to pay the bill and everyone starts to do what is expected of them - to fight to be the one who pay the bill. Chinese believe rigueur loudly and violently rip hand account of someone who he was. Such a spectacle could be delayed for a few minutes until someone wins and not pay the bill. Always appreciated your willingness and ability to pay.

8. Never come to visit empty-handed

Chinese often exchange gifts and not just on special occasions. If you go for dinner to meet with business partners, or any other pre-planned event, both parties bring with them some gifts as a sign of friendship and respect. Western tourists are often surprised by the number of gifts from the Chinese hosts. The general rule is that heading to China, it is worth to take a lot of small gifts with them. Never know where to meet someone who wants to give you small gifts, so you need to bring your own.

9. Never accept food, drinks or gifts in front of this a couple of times without giving

No self-respecting guest will not immediately accept whatever offer he hosts. No matter how you hungry, or thirsty, or you can not wait to get a gift - Chinese etiquette suggests that you should not show it, sometimes you need to abandon proposed.

10 Useful Tips to stay in China

10. Never take the phrase, "No, thank you" literally

The Chinese people have already developed the habit will be to deny you a few times, even despite the fact that they are very hungry or thirsty. Never be taken first, "No, thank you" literally, even if the person you replied failure several times, do not be lazy to offer again. Good guest should refuse at least once, but a good boss to offer twice.

At first glance it may seem that it is rather strange tradition. But think again, do we not act in much the same? Are educated people in our country will be publicly humiliate another? No! Have we come to visit empty-handed? I think that is very rare. And coming to her friend, just as we say a couple of times, "Oh, no thanks, I'm not hungry!" I do not think we will be too hard to follow all these rules, although clearly hear from the owners to compliment the negative response will be a little weird! But we are with you now know that this is normal. And what about interesting Chinese traditions and taboos you know? Share it with us!
