"Try to get out & talk to the..." China Local Custom Tip by JVENUTO

China Local Customs: 240 reviews and 248 photos

Try to get out & talk to the people on the street. A great time to do this is in the early evening in the city parks(its safe) Many are learning english as a second language & they're starving to hear english spoken by non-chinese without a chinese accent. Don't be suprised if you start talking to someone & you draw a crowd. A great place to do this is in Shanghai on the Bund(riverfront promanade).
