The Six Arts of Confucius
Today, rituals are loosely referred to greetings, movement, and thoughtfulness in a ritual-ridden ancient China. Most international visitors are at a lost when deciding where to sit at a round dinner table and when to toast to the host.
In Shandong, the ritual is more rigid and fascinating than anywhere else in China. To have a decent taste of the six skills, visit the “Confucius Six Arts Institute in Qufu.
The main sights are within the city walls of ancient Qufu, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it will take a full day to explore. There is a choreographed closing ceremony at the gate, every evening.
