What are the major differences between Chinese and Western cultures?

Here are 8 illustrations which juxtaposes the cultures of the West (blue) and East (red). These are generalizations, of course, so these illustrations aren’t true of all Chinese people or Westerners.

1) Dealing with problems.

2) The individual.

3) Transportation.

4) Expressing an opinion.

5) Sunshine.

6) Society and senior citizens.

7) Networking.

8) Streets on Sundays.

Source: The cultural differences between East and West, according to one artist. All images are from a book by Yang Liu, a designer who moved from Beijing to Berlin at the age of 13. Her book was published in 2007.

That is because of the population and customs prevalent in Asia and West.

I have been to China, live in America, and I am a Kenyan native, as such; I appreciate different cultures. We stand to learn from each other if we are smart, since we are moving towards a global culture. I love to travel the world.

I like it. I'm a westerner; we could stand to adopt some of the eastern principals.
