China has an unique culture of numbers. 中国有独特的数字文化 Some Chinese dislike the number of 4, because it’s pronounce is similar to death. They like the number of 6, it sounds like lucky. They also favor 8, since it sounds like fortune. Sometimes Chinese passengers will get annoyed when they are assigned to stay on the 4th floor of a hotel. They may ask for a change. “ When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” The Disneyland Hong Kong follows this. The Disneyland Hotel does not have 4th floor. The restaurant has a floor space of 888 square meters. Another example is a popular tour to Queensland, Australia. Passengers will stay in Hotel Palazzo Versace on Gold Coast, then board the cruise “ Sun Lover” to see the Great Barrier Reef, a world heritage, and spend some time on Dolphin Island. The package price is 18,888 Yuan (about $ 2,300) 中国人忌讳4，喜欢6，喜欢8。 .
China has a unique culture of cuisine. 中国有独特的饮食文化 For example, the Chinese like tea. When they are staying in a hotel, they hope that hot water is provided to make tea. For breakfast, they would be happy if they can have congee, pickles, noodle and steamed bread. For lunch and dinner, they prefer rice and steamed bread. They like hot, not cold, milk. 中国人喜欢喝茶，外出旅游时，喜欢饭店客房有热水，能泡茶。再譬如，早餐喜欢有粥、咸菜、面条、馒头。中晚餐喜欢有米饭、馒头等。喜欢热牛奶，而不是冷牛奶。
China has her own custom. 中国有独特的习俗 On the 15th of August by lunar calendar, it is the Moon Festival, when the Chinese will eat moon cakes. The full moon and round moon cakes symbolize family reunion and happiness, which is the ideal of the Chinese for thousand of years. On the Spring Festival, which is the New Year’s Day by lunar calendar, people will eat dumplings. Long noodle is prepared on birthday, which symbolizes longevity. If hotels and restaurants in the ADS could make such preparations for their Chinese guests and the careful hosts could offer some noodle for their guests who happen to have their birthdays there, it will be a surprise for the guests and they will not forget it. 八月十五吃月饼，春节吃饺子； 过生日吃面条…
The Chinese characters are a kind of complicated square-shaped characters. 中文是个由复杂的方块字组成的独特的文种 Chinese passengers will feel comfortable and satisfied if they can find maps and tour guide in Chinese language in hotel lobbies, Chinese directory about the facilities and services in the rooms, and TV with Chinese channels. It will also help a lot if there are Chinese explanations and road signs in major museums and tourist sites. It will be more convenient for Chinese passengers if there are signs in Chinese at the airports or train stations and Chinese speaking personnel. When Chinese tourists are satisfied, they will tell their stories to their friends and relatives. This will encourage more people to go. 饭店大堂有中文的地图和指南，客房有中文的设备使用说明，电视能接收中国频道….
