Surviving China

Even if you visit China for a few days you might face quite a number of strange things that go against everything that is common sense or common courtesy in the West. This is a short list of the issues you may face and their reason and possible solution.

Everyone knows  that China is the most populous country in the world but you only face what it really means when you are in China. There are crowds everywhere and people adopted to being surrounded all the time by dozens of strangers. We could consider it natural survival skill that consequently strangers don’t count and literary they are not even noticed by your average Chinese. Logical it seems, it has the most irritating consequences.

Let’s start with the noise.  Most Chinese scream and yell in any given situation, talk at top volume on the phone, sing karaoke at odd hours at home, use the washer at 5 o’clock in the morning without giving it a thought. Not suprisingly, they are not bothered by the noise at all, this is what they are used to from early childhood. You, however, will have  a problem with it. Daytime it is tolerable, at night I strongly suggest using earplugs if you only stay for a short time. If you stay in China long enough, after a couple of weeks you get used to it as well.

Personal space is smaller than what is normal in the West. Therefore, if you keep your normal distance from people when queueing, Chinese will cut lines. Frankly speaking they tend to do it anyway but keep in mind: if you are further away from the person in front of you than two inches, you are not serious about lining up, you are just hanging around.  Keep as close to people as you can when you are waiting to be served or waiting for a taxi. You have better chances of being served or picked up.

Certain body functions that we tend to hide in the west are normal and not to be ashamed of in China. People spit, belch, pick their noses, squeeze their pimples even pee or worse in the open. You can be outraged but remember: you are not about to change the habits of more then one billion people. Of course it is not very hygienic but if you wash your hand regularly, it should not be anything more than annoying. Just look the other way. It also explains the toilets in China: you will find that except for hotels and elegant restaurants toilet doors are not closed when being used, sometimes they don’t even have a separation as there is  nothing to hide. Speaking about bathrooms: be warned that in China just like the rest of Asia toilet paper is not to be thrown into the toilet. There is a separate basket for this purpose. Also: remember to carry tissue paper with you all the time. Most toilets don’t have toilet paper, most restaurants don’t give you serviettes.

China was cut off the rest of the world for a long time. There have been generations of people who did not make it as far as the nearest village, they stayed where they were born all their lives. Therefore it is not surprising that Chinese people look at strangers with suspicion up till now. In the cities the sight of a white or black person is not very surprising but go a couple of miles away and you will be a star in its good and bad sense. Kids walk up to you shreaking “Hello”, adults measure you up and down commenting something about you to their friends. Innocent as it seems to be, try walking around for one hour being looked at as if you were an animal int he zoo and try answering child Nr 100’s friendly “Hello” with a smile. You will fail.. No great pieces of advice here. Take a deep breath. Remember they are only curious. Remember that you will leave soon enough anyway. Don’t be aggressive, don’t complain or fight. Especially because you would attract even bigger crowds.

There are more and more new tricks to cheat Western importers in China

Naturally, there are no more frauds in China than in any other countries, however in a country of 1.4 billion people  it is logical that the number of honest and not honest people are both high. Let’s have a look at the most frequent ways of cheating online.

The dangers of ordering online or the Chinese- Nigerian trick

Ways of trying to cheat the buyer are as old as trading itself. Online fraud is also based on these old tricks. Lets have a look at the most general ones:

Even though everyone has heard about the so-called Nigarian scam, up till now a lot of naive people believe the trick and lose considerable sums. The usual Chinese version costs less for the people scammed but with its more believable story line more people fall victim.

The Huge Chinese Order

Lets take an average American or European manufacturer. A Chinese company starts contacting  them with the intention of purchasing their product. They agree on the price and the order amount is considerable. For signing the contract the supplier has to fly to China. This relatively small expensive is gladly paid by the manufacturers in hope of the huge order. Continue reading
