China and the United States are opposite sides of the world, and the differences between the two can be illustrated using a cultural difference diagram. As the cultural difference diagram suggests, people in western countries used to move from place to place often and conquer other areas while the Chinese nation lived a calm life within a close-knit community. Individualism is a philosophy that predominates in western countries, whereas the Chinese philosophy is collectivism -- a group is something that matters the most. At the same time, during the weekends, the Chinese or the other Asian people prefer serenity. In comparison, people from western countries prefer to gather with their friends and family.
