13th floor – no one dares to go there!

This is actually very common in China. Number 13 is considered to bring bad luck – so the buildings don’t have the 13h floor!

That’s not true. Chinese aren’t superstitious about the number 13. (However a lot of buildings don’t have the 4th floor in China…)

The number 4 (四, si4) is seen as bad luck in China because it sounds extremely similar to the word “to die”(死, si3). The only difference in the sound is what tone they are. So a lot of buildings in China will “skip” the 4th floor or the “death” floor and call it the 5th floor.

Ok, dumbasses. There is lack of a 13th floor in most of the buildings in the rest of the world as well.

Hmmm, reading my comment above, I never once denied that the 13th floor is “skipped” in buildings in other countries. But china does not skip the 13th floor. There is nothing superstitious about the number 13 in the Chinese culture.

Chinese have no any special feeling towards 13 instead cantonese liked it (實生)

Only those who watched “friday the 13th” will remove it from the lift LOL

get your facts straight, most older U.S high rises don’t have a 13th floor. This has nothing to do with Chinese culture.
