The 2nd time in china I met up with my friend and it was the end of the day so I made sure she got home safely by taxi. When we got out the taxi we were saying good bye and I went to hug her which seemed fine and that was that. She even invited me up to meet her grand parents. Then for weeks after I did not hear from her. Then she messaged me saying I made her feel uncomfortable. We got over it and we are still friends 7 years later. This showed me the importance of understanding the environment in which you are in I never hugged a Chinese person since ;)

The amount of people out walking about was so different to UK, but that was 14 yrs ago, now the roads are in place it's mayhem not only on the pavements but in traffic too
