So here are three things that you have to consider when going on a romantic trip to China, looking for your Chinese bride.
If you have never been in China before, you are definitely going to be shocked. Literally. Within the first days, you will be awed with unusual daily habits of Chinese people.
However, after some days of traveling, you will notice some of their habits that might seem disgusting, for example, slurping loudly in public restaurants. Also, get ready for the fact that Chinese will be taking photos of you without any permission – there is a cult of foreigners there, and sometimes it might get annoying.
When you are looking for your Chinese bride, think twice whether you will be able to withstand all of her shocking cultural manifestations.
Traveling to China alone without being able of speaking Chinese is a great risk. If you are going to meet there your mail-order bride, with whom you chatted for a few months on an online dating site, no problems then.
But if you want to try your luck in pubs or at exhibitions searching for a Chinese girl to date, you will struggle. In China, the majority of people do not speak English, and even if they do, they speak it poorly. So make sure you take a few Mandarin classes before you travel and download a Chinese translator app to your phone.
If you do not speak Chinese and travel alone, you have to be two times more careful than other visitors of China as long as you are an ideal target for scammers.
If a Chinese comes up to you speaking English and offering some suggestions, politely say that you are reluctant to talk to him or her and make sure you head to a safe place. You may never know intentions of a person.
Also, be careful with taxi drivers. Lots of them easily spot foreigners and will try to take the longest route to your hotel to get more money from you. Always use a personal GPS.
Hopefully, these small tips will help you to find a Chinese bride safely and successfully!
