China Facts and Chinese Culture

Chinese Food

Chinese Food

Food has a special meaning to the Chinese people. The "waste not, want not" ethos means that a surprising range and variety of plants and animals, and every part of a plant or animal is used. This has given rise to a remarkable diversity in the regional cuisine, but to westerners it can be overwhelming - surprising, fantastic, delicious, horrifying or disgusting.

Traditions and Custom

To many people in the west, the word 'China' can typically conjure up thoughts of dragons, panda bears, the colour red, the number 8 and the distinctive script; all of which are traditional to this country. But it goes a lot further than this.

Chinese Lucky Numbers

Chinese Lucky Numbers

In China, whether a number is considered lucky or not is often related to the similarity between the pronunciation of the number (i.e., its sound byte) and the sound byte of another word which carries a positive connotation.
