How should women act in China?? Why would you even ask this as if you are heading to another unknown distant planet. Plain and simple...China is now more open than ever before...just act your damn self. If you are caucasian you have no face to lose...your compatriots lost it for you long time ago so no worries there haha.
I like this. It shows quite clearly what “country bumpkins” these Westerners are. I won’t be surprised if Westerners still think of Chinese in Manchu costume, men with pigtails and women with bound feet and walk on clogs the Manchu ways. Indeed, many Westerners are still couching potatoes glued to their TV sets, have never left the homes and never realised how the world has changed.
It’s no wonder their politicians can easily decide how they should vote and they are proud of their “democracy”(?) still.
Question: How should women act in China?
Behave decent and civilised, the minimum standard expected of any genuine traveller.
Before my first visit to China some 2 years ago, I did have some concern. It was, however, not about me being a female travelling in China, but to a Communist country. Of course, having been brainwashed and fed with misconceptions about how “terrible” a Communist country was, my concern then was quite natural though in the back of my mind and being a Chinese (and very proud of my ethnicity), I knew it wasn’t to be.
TRUE enough, my trip turned out to be, surprisingly, a very pleasant one. In fact, I felt very “free” when I was in China and have no worries whatsoever, where to go, what to eat and with whom I speak. Of course, I am only speaking for myself which I can only do so.
After my trip, I felt China will be my target travel destination which I rated highly. Now, I felt it would be like homecoming.
Based on the question you asked and for good advice, I will say get more education yourself before you come to China. Of course, if you want to come to China and walk naked in the streets, you’ll be immediately arrested, something you can expect in any countries including your own, I hope.
