As the world grows smaller, as ever-increasing numbers of people travel, work
or study abroad, more attention is being focused on how to treat culture
difference. It has risen as to the issue of whether foreigner should follow the
custom of visited country, or host nation should greet the exotic culture.
Before giving my opinion, I think it is essential to look at the argument on
Some people claim that visitors should learn and suit local culture and
behavior, which is benefit for both visited nation and exotic people. As far as
visited country is concerned, it is an effective measure to protect local
custom and culture heritage that is formed through thousands of years. To
foreigners, by learning local custom and culture they understand the behavior
and way of local citizen, and adapt to the society quickly. In addition, it is
a good chance of broadening their horizon and expanding their experience.
However, other people also have strong reasons to argue that any nation should
embrace the different culture. At first, Foreigners usually take many novel
ideas and things that will enrich the entertainment and recreation. In the
second place, visitors might push the economic development of host country. For
example, in Chinese history, Zhenhe took many new technique such as weaving
cloth, agriculture and making wine to south-east Asia, which exerted great
influence on local people's lives. Last of all, in the era of information, for
a company or a nation it is good way to gain undefeated position only by
learning external world and making others to learn yourself.
Taking into account of all these factors, I am in favor of the latter view that
nation should embrace the difference culture and absorb it's merit. In the near
future, all the people on the earth will break through the border of nation and
live in one happy family.
