China: 5000 years of culture

China is home to one of the world's oldest and most complex civilizations. China boasts a history rich in over 5,000 years of artistic, philosophical, and political advancement. Especially artistic is China’s cuisine, one of the richest and most diverse in the world.

Etiquette the code which governs the expectations of social behavior (i.e. the conventional norm) seems also to be more complex than anywhere else.

Photo of Chinese table manners (Shanghai, China, 1986). Only recall that it was a restaurant on Nanjing Lu and quite an expensive one.

Quite interesting are the observations of two Chinese providing guidance on table manners in America: ‘At a Chinese restaurant, it’s perfectly okay to shout, burp, and slurp’.

Delicous. Just a pity we cannot see the chicken head peeping out of the soup bowl here.
