Public gardens may be the place to experience the social Chinese life. As China population is aging, you will see many Chinese elderly women (and some men) spend their spare time in the gardens in early morning or evening, doing some physical exercises or practicing group dancing. From tango to cha-cha-cha, from taichi to aerobic. They practice seriously, as this is to keep them healthy and happy (which, amazingly, in those supposedly happy moments, smiles are rare to be seen on their faces).
