  no spitting please
by herzog63

I don't want to offend any locals but what's up with the spitting?!? I saw many signs saying "Please don't spit" but people spit everywhere. Including restaurants...Right on the floor too! I wanted to try it just to say I'd done it but I couldn't do it! Maybe this custom will go away. I can safely say that it's the only thing I didn't care for in China....I loved everything else. The People, The food, The trains, the buses etc...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
