Well here that long-awaited instant when you, eventually, have learnt, eventually, has come, how many there is a trip to China and how to issue the visa to China, have caught tickets and go осмативать the Chinese sights. But do not hurry. Tourists in China can meet difficulties, about which it is better to learn in advance.
The factor which should be considered to foreigners in China, is the Chinese concept of a personal place. Here in the nature of things fixedly to consider each other and to snatch out letters or books from another’s hands that most meticulously to study them. Even toilets here are under construction with such low partitions that you can exchange words with the neighbour, squatting. Any actions, including visit of natural beauty, here it is accepted to make the big, ringing companies, and the desire of some western tourists remain «alone with itself» can to be regarded by locals as excentric, haughty behaviour, without saying that from time to time bad intentions can and see in it absolutely.
Exotic, by sight local population, tourists in China by all means become objects of irritating curiosity. They are stuck round by staring gapers and on 20 times in the course of the day call on the street "hello-o-o" exclamations. And in rural areas behind them quite often even locals run, pushing away each other better to consider visiting guests, and shouting лаовай, лаовай ("foreigner"). Such behaviour does not need to be regarded as manifestation of rage or desire to offend you though it finally causes strong irritation in many tourists. One of ways to smooth a situation is to address to gathered in Chinese if you own of. And, in any case, it is necessary to keep benevolent expression – interest to own person in principle even is flatter!
