Going to China for the first time can be an intimidating experience, even for those who have studied the language. In fact, traveling to China for the second, third, or fourth time can also be a challenging experience, especially if you intend to be fully immersed in daily life, get off the beaten path, and experience the "real" China.
This China etiquette and culture guide is about how to get things done in China. Decoding China gives you practical information on how to deal with everyday situations—like eating at a restaurant or shopping at an outdoor market—that present unique and unexpected challenges for foreign visitors.
- Why being polite when you board a bus is a big mistake
- Finding a toilet (and what to bring along!)
- How to bargain for anything in a Chinese market
- Which train ticket to buy—hard seat? Soft seat?
- How the Chinese view privacy, and why it may make you seem suspicious
- Working in a Chinese office, and the politics of lunch
"Based on his own experience of teaching and traveling in China in the past decades, Christensen's book Decoding China serves as a reminder to anyone who will be living, studying and working in China that understanding the culture codes that help develop and maintain relationships is more important than just mastering a bundle of linguistic skills." —Shanghai Daily
