China travel is not easy. It is not only because of its population size and density. But also because of the language barrier (very few people speak English), social customs, levels of cleanliness, pollution, citizen consideration, respect for traffic regulations, insufficient or inadequate transport networks in some areas, strange foods.
The best way to get out of doubt about China travel is to go there and live it, but if you don’t have the opportunity then read this first. As there are already many documents where you can find out about its cultural, monumental or gastronomic wonders. In addition to a thousand tips to have a great time, I’m going to give you advice with great humor about what you should never do in China travel ever.
China Travel: Try To Deceive A Chinese
Over the past 5,000 years, fingers of one hand are left over to list foreigners who have cheated on a Chinese. None lived to tell. For your physical and mental health, accept that they are smarter than us, or more stubborn; the point is that you will never win in an argument with them. Accept that if you go to China, you are going to “cheat like a Chinese” routinely, don’t take it with acrimony. Save yourself with no the anger and be happy.
Enter A Public Service
Especially after eating and especially if it is a service station in some remote area. What you will see there is something that will be stuck in your memory for the rest of your days. Have 1 yuan ready because, on top, it is common to have to pay to visit the pestilent hole. If you are apprehensive, wear a scented handkerchief that you can put on your nose, sometimes it is a matter of survival.
Pretend To Be Alone
You have seen amazing photographs on this or that place in China, and you are looking forward to getting a picture of your life, which you will hang in your living room to envy your friends. But when you set foot there, there are already a few hundred tourists copying your idea, as well as putting together a scandal that breaks all the charm. But there is hope: the Chinese usually travel in massive groups, and the guides usually go through the same places. If you leave the marked path you still have an opportunity to find peace and magic. That, or get up much earlier, before the tours appear (usually arrive at 9:00 or 9:30), or stay until the sun goes down and they go progressively to dinner (in China you eat dinner around 19:00).
