China's long and illustrious history has seen many changes. Coupled with natural boundaries that make it the 4th largest nation by landmass and the largest by population has given rise to a varied and multi-faceted culture. Although China is now pushing for complete modernization there still exists many ancient roots to modern customs and behavior in Chinese society, often unfathomable to the outside observer. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect that a foreign visitor coming to China could immediately understand, much less adjust to, these customs, which often cause friction with their own experiences. If you have recently arrived and even for those who have been here a while the transition into Chinese life is not always smooth.
