Lifestyle in China

Updated: Jun 8

First of all, Lifestyle is based on the interests, behaviors, opinions, and some orientations of a group, culture, or an individual.

In this article, we will find more interesting comments and factors concerning the psychological aspects of Chinese people such as personal values, preferences, and outlooks.





Since ancient times, Chinese culture has been highly influenced by Confucianism. China is also a country with dynastic era, and opportunities for social advancement. Usually, it could be provided by high performance in the prestigious imperial examinations inspired by the Han dynasty.


In the general perception of cultural refinement in China, the belief on calligraphy, painting and poetry were higher forms of art than dancing or drama. Chinese culture has long emphasized a sense of deep history and a largely inward-looking national perspective. In this country, we shall know that examinations and a culture of merit remain greatly valued today.




The first Chinese and leaders of the Republic of China were born into the traditional imperial order. Unfortunately, they were influenced by the May 4th Movement and reformist ideals.

They were supposed to change some traditional aspects of Chinese culture, such as rural land tenure, sexism, and the Confucian system of education. But it is good to preserve others, such as the family structure and culture of obedience to the state, only if they have good leadership.


Some observers see the period following the establishment of the PRC in 1949 as a continuation of traditional Chinese dynastic history. Some persons claim that the Communist Party's rule has damaged the foundations of this country in their national culture. The damage could be seen especially through political movements such as the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s.



By this way, many aspects of traditional culture were destroyed. And several people thought the Chinese have been denounced as "regressive and harmful" or "vestiges of feudalism''. Many important aspects of traditional morals and culture, like the Art, the Confucianism, the Literature, and Performing Arts were altered in order to conform to government policies and propaganda. We have a relevant example with the Peking opera.



Even the access to foreign media remains restricted.

Today, the government has accepted several elements of traditional Chinese culture as being integral to their society. Anyway, the rise of Chinese nationalism and the end of the Cultural Revolution, various forms of traditional Chinese art, literature, film, music, architecture and fashion have seen a vigorous revival. Now it's a good news for some of them. Thus, folk and variety art in particular have sparked interest nationally and even worldwide.





China is now the 3rd most visited country in our planet. With more than 55.7 million inbound international visitors in 2010, it experiences a large volume of tourism. Today, as of 2020, we have already more than 731 million Chinese holidaymakers travelled within the country.

Here is China!
