The Chinese have very interesting beliefs. I was quite surprised to learn that they were so afraid of the number 4. The Chinese word for four is very similar to the word for death. That's why there is no room number 4 in the hotels, the 4th floor is not visible in the elevators. It is strange that they are so afraid of death, but the strangest thing is that they are afraid of the number 4 just because it resembles the word death.
