Travel Notes

Traveling through China is an incredible adventure. Not so very long ago China was experiencing a  period of isolation from the rest of the globe. The incredibly rapid shift into the modern world has been unprecedented in the history of our planet! Most of the rapid financial/industrial expansion has happened in the large population centers like Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Hong Kong, etc.

Many Western fashion statements like mini skirts, bikinis, facial makeup, & even body piercing can be seen, and are popular with young people in the large cities.  On the clothes issue... (which seems to be mostly a gender bias) bare shoulders on women, short skirts or shorts on women, heavy facial makeup (on men & women) generally fall into the (improper zone) throughout most of China, especially rural areas.

There are a number of good books on proper traveling etiquette. Many tour guide books like "Lonely Planet", Frommers and many others have gems of wisdom. Take the time to learn as much as you can about the religious, ethnic & cultural customs of the area & people that you plan to visit. You will have a better relationship & interaction with the people that you are visiting, you will get more out of your tour and you will enjoy your experience much much more than you thought was possible.
