"Expat life in Wuhan can present some cultural challenges, such as the difficulties of navigating through an unfamiliar language and different communication standards. Additionally, the traditional customs in Wuhan often involve a hierarchical structure of respect, which may be rather foreign to those from more egalitarian cultures.
