The Chinese are generally hospitable and honourable to a fault. But, while visiting the country, bear the following in mind:

Do not insult, criticise or speak badly of the government. This is an illegal act that may result in imprisonment or deportation from the country.

Do not, in any way, discuss political and cultural issues in Tibet, Taiwan and Xinjiang. These are very sensitive subjects that are bound to aggravate Chinese people.
