    Dress Conservatively

    The Chinese people dress more conservatively than Westerners. Men do not wear shorts and women do not wear sleeveless outfits. Chinese women also do not wear tracksuits.

    Blue jeans, however, are popular among the Chinese youths.

    Although not as cold as much of northern China, Beijingers do need to keep out the sub-zero temperatures for five months of the year.
    Everyone wears thermal underwear and then use multiple layers of clothing to keep the chill out. When it gets really cold, many take to wearing cotton face-masks.
    These two ladies at the Temple Fair in Ditan Park have added some optional extras to their designer 'warmth kits'.
    For visitors, the face-masks, wizards hats and swords are not mandatory.
