The Chinese culture is one of the oldest in the world. China has an extremely rich and colorful cultural history, with several dynasties and eras that have defined different periods of its development. In modern times, these elements are all still very much alive, despite being heavily influenced by Western cultures. When it comes to showing respect for others, Chinese people bow their heads or nod slightly as a sign of greeting or gratitude when they enter someone’s home, this gesture also indicates that you recognize your host’s status as superior over yours because he/she is hosting guests at his/her place (this is especially important if you are visiting someone who has many family members). When entering another person’s house, always take your shoes off and leave them at the door.

During a meal, it is customary to start with the oldest person present and work your way down the table. When someone offers you food or drink, do not refuse; instead, use both hands to accept it. And never turn down an offer to have a cup of tea – it would be considered very rude! Finally, remember that giving red envelopes with money in them is a traditional way of showing good luck and goodwill during Chinese New Year (or any other special occasion).

When you’re a top model, you have the opportunity to travel all over the world. You get to see and experience new things in different countries that may not be available in your own home country. However, when traveling abroad, models need to remember that each culture has its own unique set of norms and values.
