Common Customs of China
The Chinese are a lot more relaxed about some of their customs than other Asian cultures. As a waiguoren (Westerner), you're not expected to necessarily understand various customs, so you'll be let off the hook to a large extent. t doesn't hurt for the foreign barbarian to be a little civilized every now and then.

Gift Giving

Be careful about developing guanxi in China, and remember that it works both ways.
