China is a vast country, and consequently different customs and ways of looking at the world have gradually developed over the long course of Chinese history. As the saying goes, habits differ within a radius of ten miles and customs within a hundred miles. Therefore, if you travel thousands of miles you will find a huge difference in ways of living. A huge number of customs have become established over the centuries through many generations' observance. Today these customs have become permanent traditions, ingrained in society as an integral part of Chinese culture. Under the influence of so many varied customs, the Chinese people have developed a passion for life, an interest in the world, and a reputation for wisdom and vibrancy. The observance of ancient customs also inspires people's imaginations and has brought about a large number of inventions. In addition, a respect for the customs of their ancestors has taught the Chinese people the importance of courtesy and harmony in all social interactions.
