The Chinese word 参观 means “to visit” or “to tour”. It is commonly used when referring to visiting a place of interest, such as a museum, park, or historical site. It can also be used to describe visiting someone’s home or workplace. In Chinese culture, it is customary to show respect and hospitality to guests, so the act of 参观 is often seen as a way to build relationships and create positive social interactions.
