What are some unusual Chinese customs?
Some of China’s traditions and customs can seem quite shocking to foreigners when they first visit. For example, burping is seen as a sign of satisfaction with the meal and is considered a compliment. It might also surprise you to see people spitting loudly in public. Even though attempts are being made to lesson this practice, it is quite common to see people spit on the streets or even on public transportation. When you are in China and you see toddlers in split pants, don’t be concerned. These pants are often preferred in place of diapers as they allow children to relieve themselves when need be.
