I've been thinking about China for quite a while now but the above mentioned issue continues to put me off. Would anyone who has actually been there mind advising on the subject, is it just in the street, might you see it while eating in a restaurant etc.
I've been to China quite a few times as my daughter lives there. Spitting is generally accepted, but in cities it is seen less than in more rural areas. You get used to it as one of the things that is acceptable there. In restaurants it is the norm for bones , gristle etc, to be removed and left at the side of your dish (not a problem with vegetarian dishes....) but this isn't spitting as you mean it. Go there! Enjoy! The people are welcoming, the food is lovely (you'll probably never quite enjoy a takeaway the same again though, as it doesn't compare!). Hope this helps
Thanks for your answer! So does that mean that there is always someone within your eye view doing it?
Anne, the more squeamish than most!
Spitting in the streets isn't that bad. In restaurants you will hardly notice as you'll be enjoying your food too much!
Gill, many thanks for your advise! Anne
