For example, you will learn why the number 4 is believed unlucky, and why number 8 is thought to be a lucky number!

Some products and services will avoid the number four in product ranges. And some apartment blocks will even skip over the number 4 when numbering their floors, as these apartments are likely to attract a lower price among superstitious Chinese customers. On the other hand, any products with number 8 are likely to attract a premium price e.g. license plates, phone numbers.
