I have only spent one day in China. I traveled there by train from Hong Kong. One particular system the Chinese have impressed me and I always tell people about it.

I applaud China for the respect they show to senior citizens. Here in the U.K senior citizens are seen as a burden not as treasure to be mined for experience and knowledge.
My overall impression of China was limited to one day. From that one day I learned the value of respect.
