Abstract:

Certain aspects of the Chinese way of life may strike you as very strange. But by bearing a few basic guidelines in mind, you'll feel more able to fit in. Negative replies are considered impolite because they disturb surface harmony. Try responding instead with a "maybe" or "we'll see." The Chinese tend to be enthusiastic when eating and make more noise than Westerners at the dinner table. Until recently, spitting in public was common and acceptable among both men and women. Spitting is becoming less socially acceptable, but you should still expect to see it on the streets. Although gift giving is an important element of reciprocity, bribes are illegal in China. Be careful not to be extravagant when you select a gift for a host or colleague. It's customary to decline a gift three times before accepting it, so be sure to persevere if a recipient refuses to take your present. You should stop offering only if you sense genuine reluctance. Likewise, if you're given a gift, politely decline several times before accepting it graciously. Colours are loaded with symbolism. Never wrap a gift in white, black, or blue, as these colors are associated with death. Red, yellow, and pink are safer bets. When in doubt, ask for advice.
