The single most populated nation and one of the largest countries in the world, of course, is China.
From its ancient old civilization to its breathtaking sites and unique and sophisticated culture, China is wide and special in its own way.
China is considered a “coconut culture”. Chinese people present a stony, formal exterior, but they are actually as warm and welcoming as other cultures.
Every colour has different meanings in China, lucky and unlucky. The same is for numbers, those that sound like words with lucky meanings are considered lucky numbers. Also during their New year, which lasts for 15 days, they eat only lucky food
In China, every year is named after one of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. 2022 is the Year of the Tiger.
And this is my favourite part, every single Panda living in the whole world belongs to China…except for two! The only two pandas in the world that don’t belong to China live in the Chapultepec Zoo in Mexico City, Mexico. In every other country in the world, all pandas are on loan from China. In China, all Pandas can be found in Chengdu, Sichuan’s capital city.
Chinese food has ‘8 Great Cuisines’.
There are many styles of cooking in China. The most popular cooking styles in China are known as the ‘Eight Great Cuisines’, named according to different regions of China. The features of the 8 cuisines are, Cantonese, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Hunan, Anhui and Shandong cuisine. Of what they mean and represent, you have to find out by yourself :)
