Great China in modern appearance. – Guangzhou Dalian Sanya Hainan Hangzhou Harbin Shanghai, China – Tourist Blog
Do you love China, how I love him? It is impossible to definitely answer this question, never having been in this amazing country. Having visited China for the first time, you can imbued with the Spirit and love this great country!
Old China was a state with a huge branch apparatus, with a lot of quantivular wine – ********** – and with the magnificent and ceremony yard of the emperor – Bogdyman. The yard of Bogdyman was famous for the whole world indescribably complex rules of behavior – etiquette. There were such a lot that there was a whole science of court ceremonies; Every new Bogdoyan has raised additional prescriptions, bows and other customs.
Gradually, the words "Chinese ceremonies" became the designation of generally tedious and unnecessary conventions, the expression of courtesy, brought to nonsense.
At the borders of the old Chinese Empire, the preserved somewhere to this day is a colossal stone wall. There was a time when she reached a decade height and seven meters of thickness. The wall stretched, protecting China from nomads raids, six thousand kilometers. Chinese historians argued that two million workers under the supervision of three hundred people were built under the supervision of three hundred. The wall was and remains an amazing monument of architecture, although military importance has long been lost.
Not having equal structures have long been struck by the minds of neighboring peoples. Everywhere began to use expressions: "WORK WALL", "CHINE WALL CHANGE" – To designate an irresistible barrier, the desire to live apart, avoiding communicating with the rest of the world.
In China, very deep traditions. Residents of the country are truly distinctive, with peculiar habits, worldview and lifestyle. Often it causes surprise among others, others – irritation, someone has a laugh, – no indifferent. So, plunge into the mysterious world of the Great China!
This article I want to convey to the reader those knowledge that is not one year
I collected about China, share my impressions, give advice as novice tourists who choose from what to start, and in the intense travelers who have ever-found a lot, but not having an idea of the great country, and just for those who are interested in readers ..
I will try to raise that veil of the mysteriousness of the intriguing China, displacing some myths and recreation as a realistic picture of the country’s presentation as possible.
I started my journey in the South West of the country from the northeast to the southwest of the country and was able to appreciate and feel the entire contrast and flavor of the life of the population: culture, life, kitchen, the infrastructure offered for tourists, and just fell in love with this Progressively developing country with its ancient culture in modern appearance.
First of all, China has become attractive for the Russian tourist with its low pricing policies and the quality of the services offered, which are constantly expanding and improving, responding to all standards of tourism and recreation.
It’s no secret that the Chinese copied a lot with the already well developed industry of tourism and rest Europe. At the same time, local customs and traditions gave well-known things a fraction of piquancy. This applies not only to the services offered, but also, to more, to such areas as: Fashion Industry, Telecommunications, Automotive and Other.
At the same time, the Chinese quite succeeded in the development of new directions. The working capacity and purposefulness of the people causes admiration and nostalgia at Soviet times, because during the existence of the USSR China considered our country with his elder brother in the development of a communist society. That’s why we are something similar – the older generation will understand me.
Since the late 1970s. There is a dynamic construction of a socialist market economy in the country, and at the same time there are no queues and deficits of goods.
Networks of world famous supermarkets (Metro, Carrefour, Wall Mart and T.D.), fast food restaurants (McDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Hut and T.D.) – in one word, the range of services offered is wide and diverse and meets all the EU standards and standards.
This tourist destination is becoming increasingly popular for Russians every year. The most popular is: shops, excursion, individual and pilgrimage tours, educational programs.
If the range will be accumulated in the hearts of the people, and the slanders and depressants will be surrounded by the ruler, the good advice will not be able to overcome barriers to the ruler, and the kingdom will be in danger.
MO Tzu (MO DI) (
The population of the country varies from the north to the south, differing as external physical data, and heralds in hospitality: if in the north of China, the Russian tourist managed to establish himself not from the best side – and this is noticeable in the wary state of the service personnel, ready for everything that can only Expect from our loving rest to the full coil, – then closer to the south the situation is the opposite.
But with everything at the same time, you will never be nahamit and will not allow manual staff. And only always smiling friendly face, ready to fulfill the request or to provide any post help, will meet and accompany you!
China includes 23 provinces, 5 autonomous districts, 4 cities of central subordination and two special administrative district (Hong Kong and Aomyn).
In Chinese, there is 95% of the country’s population (over 1200 million. man,) and the Chinese population of Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Burma, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, etc. (Over 20 million. human). Chinese language refers to the Chinese-Tibetan family of languages, disintegrates on 7 major dialect groups: North (over 70% of speakers), y, xiang, gan, hackka, yue, min. Dialects differ in phonetically, which makes it difficult or impossible interdialectic communication, vocabulary, partly grammar, however, the foundations of their grammatical system and vocabulary composition are one. Dialects are associated with regular soundtractions (certain sounds of one dialect correspond to certain sounds of another dialect).
The sound composition of the Chinese language in the field of phonetics is characterized by the fact that its consonants and vowels (data on the number of phones differ) are organized into a limited amount of tinted syllables of fixed (permanent) composition. There are 414 syllables in Putunhua, taking into account the tone options – 1324 (in Putunhua – 4 senseless tones, each syllable may have from 2 to 4 tones). SCHOOLING MORPHOLOGY REMEMBER, T. E. Each syllable is the sound envelope of the morpheme or a simple word. A separate phoneme, as a carrier of meaning (usually vowel), is toned and represents a special case of a syllable.
Not a gift Chinese language is considered one of the most difficult to explore. Imagine that the alphabet contains more than 8000 hieroglyphs instead of the usual 36 letters.
Competent on the elementary level can be considered a person who has mastered 3,500 characters. 3000 hieroglyphs are enough to read newspapers and non-specialized magazines.
Large one-time bilingual dictionaries include, as a rule, 6000-8000 hieroglyphs. The most complete dictionary of the hieroglyphs of the 1994 edition contains 87,019 hieroglyphs.
Representatives of the old generation, remembering the USSR, seeing the Russian tourist on the streets of megacities, are trying to speak in Russian, laying out the whole vocabulary: Lenin, Stalin, Gorbachev, Perestroika, Comrade, hello! It turns out true, funny, but diligently!
The youth knows only the name of his pop cumira – Vitas – our, by the way, the compatriot.
The second official language of China – English. And here we do not care with the young cities of China, who freely own them and are ready to help at any time, answering an exciting tourist. And after the Beijing Olympics, each of the service personnel on elementary English can help contact.
For the convenience of tourists, all the names of the streets, as well as significant advertising and social signs are duplicated by Latin. Also in major cities in popular tourist areas have special information kiosks, allowing you to get a fascinated wanderer any data on the question of interest.
In large bazaars, markets, in shopping complexes, – in general, everywhere, which is somehow connected with trade, they say in almost all languages of the world. Only worth to speak on any familiar language, as here, picking up the conversation, you will surprisingly in response begins to babble dealer card.
Insertions about tea.
Bring everything you need to brew tea and remove the cover from the kettle, putting it upside down. The bottom of the lid should not touch the surface of the table, because the smell of varnish applied to the tree, kills the taste of tea.
The basis of the Chinese national cuisine is the dishes from a wide variety of products: cereals, flour, vegetables, meat, fish, marine invertebrates, algae, poultry, young bamboo shoots, etc.
The most popular rice. In many places, rice porridge prepared in various ways replaces bread. No meal do not go without porridge. It is boiled from Gaalina, corn, millet. From rice cook ***** crumbly porridge (tribute) and very liquid (Damizhou), which the Chinese love and use only for breakfast.
Chinese food is unthinkable without leguminous and products of them: soybean oil, soy milk, cottage cheese of soy. There are hundreds of recipes of dishes from fresh, dried marinated soy curd. Very like a dark brown liquid sauce and a spray salt pasta from soybeans. Scented crops are the main source of protein in the food of the Chinese; they replace meat whose consumption is very limited.
Most popular with the Chinese, dishes and products from flour. Among them: noodles, vermicelli, various kinds of cakes, steam bread (pampushka), dumplings, ears, sweet cookies. Cool fresh dough noodles are boiled in boiling unsalted water for 5 minutes, then washed quickly with cold water, laid out in a large bowl, and ***************** Garnish pieces of pork or chicken in sauce, small onions, trepanga, wood mushrooms, bamboo sprouts, etc. Those products that are used for the side dish and determine the name of the dish with noodles.
For the preparation of dumplings, pampnesses with minced meat and ears use 3 methods of heat treatment: cooking in water, cooking steam and root.
In Chinese cuisine, vegetables play a huge role. The most widely used cabbage (Salad Chinese, White, Sichuan) Batat, Potatoes, Radish of different types, Green Bathun, Garlic, Tomatoes, Pepper, Spinach, Green Bean Pods, and DR. Popular fat young bamboo sprouts in boiled form, side dishes and canned goods. Vegetables in large numbers marinate, salted in soy sauce, quasse and dried. They are the main snack to porridge, especially saline in soy sauce of radish and salad cabbage.
From meat products Widespread use in Chinese cuisine is a pork: beef and lamb are used much less. Most meat dishes are prepared from meat chopped with small slices, cubes, straws. The main method of thermal processing – root on high heat.
For many dishes used meat of poultry, especially chickens and ducks. They are preparing in various ways with the use of a variety of sauces, starch, seasonings and spices. Especially Favorite Kushan is a duck, the whole roasted in vegetable oil, sometimes slightly dug, pre-exposed in acute soybean sauce and tinted in bright red color.
Chicken and duck eggs are also widely used in Chinese cuisine. Having prepare some cold and hot snacks, use duck eggs, was installed by a special way. They are deprived by a mixture of ash with lime, soda and salt and withstand within 20-100 days in Chans or Earth. As a result of such excerpts, the protein acquires a brown color, and yolk-green. Eggs become peculiar to taste.
The most common drink in China – tea. It is brewed with steep boiling water in porcelain teapots of various sizes, sometimes – right in cups. Green tea drink very hot without sugar.
Eating the Chinese three times a day. Traditional lunch time – smoothly at noon.
With all the variety of Chinese national food dishes, Chinese food has simplicity and monotony. The abundance of exquisite dishes that are served in restaurants and on the confused dinners, cooked from everything that grows, runs, swims and flies, does not represent folk Chinese food. This food is banquet, delicious, which ordinary people eat only on the days of weddings and holidays.
Chinese cuisine is divided into several major groups. Differentiation historically occurred on the geographical principle. The richness of various schools is all the more familiar statistics. China is a country with many ethnic groups, therefore, it is not surprising that each of her district is characterized by its climate, history, customs and products. Hence the features of regional cuisines. So, for the south of China, sweet dishes are characterized, it is there that they are mainly producing sugar, and the northern areas are distinguished by salt dishes – salt is mined here. Jiangsu and Zhejiang Province are near the sea in Nizina, where there are many rivers and lakes, so their kitchens are famous for varieties and abundance of dishes from sea and river products. Beijing, Tianjin and other centers in the north of China are known for restaurants, where they treat fried on open fire or butter with meat dishes. In Guangzhou, Shanghai and other port cities, traditional ways of cooking are more often combined with Western.
Chinese cooks highlight four basic culinary schools that occur out of five provinces: Shandong, Sichuan, Jiangsu, Zhengyan and Guangdong. These schools, in turn, are divided into twenty most famous styles of cooking – Peking, Shanghai, Henan, Hubeysky, Muslim, Vegetarian and T.D. In addition, there are a great many local kitchens. Practically in every city or rural region of China keep the secrets of cooking dishes that are characteristic only for this area. The Chinese argue that more than five thousand dishes are known throughout the country, not counting home cooking dishes that can sharply increase this number.
Shandong cuisine light and appetizing, not **************** fats. The best dishes of this kitchen are primarily soups: clean decoctions and milk broths. Worldwide, for example, "soup of swallow nests" – a pure decoction of quite edible and useful saliva, which swallows bonded their dwellings. Usually this soup is applied on official banquets. Milk broth contains not only milk, it is seasoned by local Jiangian vegetables, other cities of Shandong province, located along the coast, are famous for sea delicacies, such as "quickly roasted seashells" or "oysters, roasted in a deep layer of oil". These dishes usually serve.
From the numerous types of freshwater fish Shandong table, the Chinese perch is considered the Chinese perch, and salmon, large and small gorge, a fish-saber, cambal, in a freshwater pond on Taishan Mount, eating from the source, lives the so-called "Fish with red scales ". In fact, her scales have a golden shade, and only fins bordered with a red stripe. Her meat is especially juicy. Cleaned, misunderstanding, it rubs off with spices, fried in a deep layer of oil and is served by the seasoned salt. Restaurants in Jinan are famous for "Karp from the River Juanhe to Sil and Sweet Sauce. When making a carp, oblique cuts on both sides are applied, covered with a layer of whipped eggs, fry in a deep layer of oil, poured with a sour sweet sauce and served on the table. The head and tail of the fish rise during roasting, so on the table, it appears bent into the arc.
Fish dishes are characteristic of Jiangsu-Zhejiang cuisine, which is based on four main culinary receptions: cooking, steam, steaming and boiling on slow heat, food here is distinguished by a slightly sweet taste, one of the most sharp dishes – all the same fish in sour Sweet sauce, but cooked different.
For Jiangsu-Zhenziang cuisine is characteristic of *************. A pair prepare chicken, meat, eggs and other products. Steam fish is especially popular, it has a delicate taste and juicy aroma.
Very favorable for culinary province Guangdong. It is located in subtropics where everything grows fast – and bulk cultures, vegetables, and fruits. The province covers a thick network of rivers, and the south is washes the sea. There are countless fish, crabs, mollusks, crabs, trepagov. In China, they joke that in the canton (Guangzhou) eat almost everything that flies, (except aircraft), moves on land (except for the tractor) and floats (except for the submarine).
Guangdong cuisine is extremely diverse. It is based mainly on the roasting, frying in the deep layer of oil, extinguishing and boiling on weak fire.
Here eat snakes, and cats, and dogs, wild mice, crocodiles, frogs, monkeys, deer and herds. Snake meat – one of the popular Cantonese dishes. The most poisonous snakes, if you cut off your head, turn into a gentle taste, tonic product. Boiled snake is considered special delicacy, the history of this dish has more than a thousand years.
The most sophisticated, exquisite dish, which is prepared from the snake, according to Chinese gourmets, is the "Dragon Battle with a Tiger". It is made from poisonous snakes of three clans, wild cats and more twenty types of spices. The dish is prepared in a very difficult way consisting of several dozen operations. The final stage is the decoration of the dish lemon tree leaves and chrysanthemum petals.
Another, somewhat simpler dish is the soup of snake. Usually to the snake in this soup add meat of cats and chicken. The soup is transparent, all the contents of it is strongly strained, so you can’t guess where the snake, where the cat, and where is the chicken. The soup also throws the petals of chrysanthemums and small crispy pellets.
Fall and winter is considered the best seasons for meat dishes. Guangzhou has a large restaurant that specializes in cooking from snake dishes and offering **************** Menu, the highlight of which is light blue wine from snake bile.
The Chinese say that the snake meat facilitates rheumatic pain, feeds blood, and serpentine bile is often used in strengthening means. The experts claim that the snake gallbladder with a finger size gives so much energy that it is enough for a couple of sleepless nights.
Beijing cuisine is most often associated with "Beijing Fried Duck". This dish is the desired delicacy for every visitor to the capital. For the first time it appeared in the imperial cuisines of the Minsk dynasty, and two hundred years later spread to restaurants for the general public. The very first restaurant, where this nose was filed, was founded more than four hundred years ago.
In any case, the content of red pepper rolls in most of the dishes that tourists who arrived from Russia can always evaluate, so a simple phrase: Bu Yala Diaoo – without spices, makes life easier for you, and make each meal enjoyment.

Do not be afraid that you do not know – Fear that you do not study.
On the level of formation of China, you can talk for hours, so developed and maintained by the authorities. Practical classes held after theoretical, enshrine lecture material, and the latest equipment that is equipped with the laboratories of the country’s universities, allows you to carry out the most bold experiments.
Many universities of Russia and China cooperate under the student exchange program.
I, too, was lucky enough to take part in such a program, and I was able to check the teaching technique. In my case, it was the East-Chinese Transport University of ECJTU.
80 days Chinese Yang Genhua ran in sneakers along the Chinese wall. It ran 2400 kilometers, overcoming 30 kilometers per day. Another Chinese runner crossed his homeland from north to south, run daily 56 kilometers. Marathonets overcame 6,200 kilometers in 110 days.
From the Book of Records Guinness.
Sports are highly developed in the country, which the Chinese have proven at the 2009 Olympics. Sports platforms, halls, corts for jerseers are equipped with all necessary inventory.
Despite the current stereotypes, in the south of the country there are many high people. This allowed to develop such sports as basketball and volleyball. At the same time, most Chinese swim badly, or do not know how to.
In the far road is not easy to boot.
The well-organized transport system of the country has high throughput and high-quality road surface – be it highway, or railway tracks: speed, comfort, quality will be able to evaluate in the first minutes of trips.
Huge terminals of airports and grand railway stations involuntarily cause admiration: spacious, comfortable and understandable. The system of information pointers in the form of pictures is simple and clear even to those who do not know Chinese.
Urban transport (buses, metro) are especially popular with tourists, while the price for travel is rather low, and the transport itself is moving without traffic jams on specially reserved strips.
Taxi is usually cars of the Volkswagen Chinese assembly. In one car, no more than 3 people can sit, and only worth you to say: "Kai di!"- that translated means" faster "- how you will be delivered to any place indicated by the driver. Thanking the driver: "Cee either", – translated into Russian "Thank you," – you can safely go on your affairs.
Clothing and shops, shopping
Respect a man, not his clothes.
Most tourists visiting China one goal is shopping.
Kitanika is greater than their weight dressed tasteless and far from elegant, fashion girls to meet – also quite a rarity. Special chip combining sports things with classic, or ridiculous clothes of pink or other wild color with images of the heroes of Walt Disney or Japanese anime.
Another trend is the absence of any hint of sexuality. But children’s immediacy and chickerel through the edge: these are to you and backpacks (they are the sameness), and the handbags in the form of teddy bears, and rushes, and bows, the nipples in the form of cartoon. The same theme of images on T-shirts. It is complemented by all these glasses in a black rim and a ridiculous shishk on the head.
Chinese guys, on the contrary, delight the ability to combine colors and styles, neat and, can be said, in the subject of the latest trends – at least nice to watch. Young people love to experiment with hairstyles (the Chinese prefer the volume, so on the shelves in supermarkets with difficulty there are means for smoothing hair or their straightening). Guys choke their hair in pink color, love to amaze and shock: the most popular options – discoloration. Oh, well, you want to be at least a bit like the Europeans, nothing can be done here!
Chinese Fashion is the same European trends, but converted to Chinese reality. There are a very large selection of multilayer clothes, that is, you buy 2B1, and sometimes 3B1. This is due not only to the fashion, but also by the fact that, for example, blouses and T-shirts with a large, according to Chinese chucks, neckline or from translucent fabric just no one can. Need the second T-shirt covering all open space. Skirts and dresses above the knee on the mannequins are painted accompanied by jeans or legins, otherwise too short and open. It is worth noting that the Chinese women are dressed: more than all for heat. With the arrival of autumn, the colds most chassis, the Chinese are becoming cotton pants or woolen ratings, they are filled with all supermarkets, and the people with hunting will buy them. If our girls can run in the Kapron Tights in winter, then in China in October (at a temperature of about +100 during the day) rarely meet the locals without rates under jeans or trousers. By winter, the number of rates increases in geometric progression and resembles a white cabbage, while all the Chinese do not wear caps, because, in their opinion, it is very ugly and they do not go! They always laugh at us, foreigners, shout: "Today is warm, take off the cap". By the way, it’s not warm, the climate in the winter period is very windy – without a head remove in any way, but local, apparently, it is incomprehensible.
The overall impression of the Chinese style of clothing is the principle "Do not bother". They dress very simple: older people and middle income – mainly in the Chinese production brand, supporting the domestic manufacturer. Very love sportswear. By the way, the special love for polo t-shirts, they are crowded out all the stores, I don’t know what it is connected with, like a collar or this congenital chastity, forcing them to cover as much as possible.
Clothes are very simple. Probably, if you compare the average Chinese 70s and the present, the difference will be small. Everything feels the effect of traditionality, modesty and communist system. Small retreats, and they are often adjusted for Chinese reality
Shopping is good in Beijing (there is a huge yabaou market), more precisely, even the street or district, which, for sure, many have heard. Here you can buy almost everything! The main thing, of course, for the Russians is a fur coat and leather products, but there is a large selection of other types of clothes. The Chinese say everything in Russian, so the involving is not much difficult for tourists. You can bargain and need! Because initially can be assigned a price overestimated in tens of times: boots at the initial price of 1800 can be bought for 200 ¥, and maybe that less. In general, from the seller voiced to you, the prices boldly remove one zero – it will be the true price of the product. Also in Beijing there are silk and pearl markets. It is clear from the name what is for sale there, but, except for silk and pearls, there are many other goods. Silk market – a multi-storey building, on each floor of a specific product type: Floor bags, belts, wallets, Floor silk, Floor footwear and t.D.
Dalian is considered the capital of fashion. On your own experience I will say if you buy clothes in shopping centers of famous Chinese brands, then in Dalian (compared to Shenyan, about Beijing, silently, there is everything without restrictions, if you search) the choice is much more! In addition, there are many shares and discounts. There, too, there is a fur market, in the city in hotels you can find people who are engaged in this and organize special groups for travel.
There are also good breeding markets in the Manchuria, there the goods are more made for a foreign buyer, the choice of colors and styles is very large. What are the good markets of Beijing and Manchuria, there you can find the "understandable" clothes for the Russian person, the clothing corresponding to our climate, modes. In addition, there are large sizes, which is especially important when choosing shoes. Usually for women maximum size – 39 (but they, most often, narrow and small). And for men – 42-43. For complete people, it is also problematic to buy clothes in shopping centers styled by Chinese brands. So such markets are a way out.
The quality of clothing depends on the price range. Not right, that in China in the markets only consumer goods. If you search and do not buy all the cheapest, you can wear very well. Another feature: in many markets, quality and prices depend on the floor, that is, the higher the floor, the fact, respectively, the quality of the goods offered …, well, and the rates, of course. Once again I want to note that in China everywhere you can bargain, except, of course, elite boutiques with fixed prices. The Chinese love not only bargain, but also to deceive, so feel free to reduce the price at times, gesturing, convince, play, go, come back – they love it! Will run after you, returning, fucking, fill, be angry, but ultimately sell.
Pro Discounts. Discounts in shopping centers and shops are almost at any time of the year, as well as sales – I still can not figure out until the end. The biggest sales are held in July-August, then in the first week of October (in honor of traditional national holidays), in December before Catholic Christmas (discounts reach 90%!), then before the Chinese New Year, the date of which every year changes and fall, tentatively, in the middle of January or mid-February. Closer to April-May there are discounts in honor of traditional holidays. In general, on some action you can get all year round. Anything will come to buy with a discount. I can say that it is very convenient: good branded things are sold literally for a penny, besides you can buy something ultra-treated and original. In Russia, do not buy this.
Many buy furniture, plumbing in China and all for home. For cities of Central and Eastern Siberia, ride in the Manchuria and purchased there already practice. Some people specially come to China to purchase everything you need to arrange their homes. But here there is a subtle moment: you need to carefully approach the choice of the carrier of cargo to deliver the goods as possible and preservation. It is best to cooperate with firms that take on the costs when an insured event occurs, then for the safety of purchases it will be possible not to worry – in the worst case they will be minimal.
Regarding world brands, prices are practically no different, well, or quite a bit due to the fact that many brands have plants in the territory of the PRC. The difference in price is small, and the choice is more (especially this concerns the sports goods of such brands as Adidas, Nike and T.D.). But then again the specificity of the Chinese market: it is not always possible to find what you like it, although for men the choice will not be much difficulty, women will not be very upset by more than a modest assortment of fits. With the rest of the problems will not!
It is profitable to buy leather products: bags, wallets, belts – all this is much cheaper here and better. Selection of jewelry, hairpins, decorations are very large, accessories for every taste – there will be no problems with this. In some markets, the whole floors of striking, the head goes around! Many beautiful stuffs – girls and women will appreciate.
Frankly, in terms of nightlife China does not shine. Lifestyle such: the Chinese are accustomed to get up early (with sunrise – about 4-5 in the morning), and in the evening at 21.00-22.00 – already go. A bus-courage in China is not such as, for example, in Turkey: there are many clubs, there are many of them, but if the club is purely Chinese, then the height of the fun falls on 22.00, at night the club is already almost empty. In international clubs who were chosen by foreigners, the situation is better: fun can last until the morning (unless of course the club itself closes in 4.00, and, basically, it happens).
The entrance to the whale club is most often free, but sometimes there are special programs. For example, pay 60-80 ¥ (for men is usually more expensive), pass to the club, and all the cocktails are free; Pinotoland, of course, do not climb, and the mojito either do not wait, but whiskey, vodka, tequila with juice, cola or tea are provided for all night. In big cities, everyone is naoled by: and Mojito, and Pinotoland.
What awaits in Chinese clubs? Almost everyone until midnight employs singers and dancers, in some plays live music. In order of things Laser show, smoke, light effects! Musical directions are different: play both Chinese and European songs, DJs are replaced, so you can find anything to your taste. In every city there are clubs who have chosen foreigners, so everywhere you can meet compatriots.
There is no special dress-code, if you compare with the clubs of Europe and the capital clubs of our country, since the poor Chinese do not go to clubs, everything in the framework of decency, only the Russians are allocated in shales and Hawaiics 🙂
The Chinese really like to drink with the Russians, so you should not be wondering out the outstretched not news from where the glass from whiskey or brandy (by the way, the Chinese are very layming up in drinks: Hennessa, Black Label, Jack Daniels and Remy Martin is very easy, sometimes Vodka Absolute, beer is very Rarely, mostly drinking his young people (if you can call it so), because the age of visitors is rarely younger than 25. Club, rather, place for adult wealthy people. But here, like everywhere, there are exceptions, I’m just talking about the trend.
Prices for drinking in Dalian clubs and Shenyan acceptable: for example, a set of 0,5l. Red label, fruit plates, snack plates (pop-roots or nuts) plus a few bottles of juice or green tea costs 300-350 ¥ (multiply by 4.5 rubles), which is not expensive at all, cocktails vary from 30 to 50 ¥ for a glass.
In Beijing reviews about nightclubs the best. All visiting their tourists are delighted. In clubs for foreigners Full split, chic, gloss, beauty! All, naturally, at the highest level!
Often in clubs there are no dance-floor as such, but the scene and the stands of the go-dence are completely in the power of visitors! Feel yourself a star of the dance floor! Protection will not interfere with fun and self-expression. Many tourists like it very much, in Russian clubs such an opportunity is rarely provided.
Small Note: Toilets in nightclubs are a bit strange, there are no light in some, more precisely, it is very and very muted. At first it scares a little, and it’s inconvenient: neither to dry up, neither look into the mirror, but it is not always and not everywhere. In general, going to the club, get ready for surprises.

Famous Reserve Lu Shang Park, with Panda dwelling. Big panda (xióngmāo; lat. Ailuropoda Melanoleuca – "Black and White Cotonog"), a bamboo bear – a mammal, currently attributive to the family of raccoon, whose homeland is Central China. Big Panda lives in mountainous regions such as Sichuan and Tibet. From the second half of the 20th century, Panda became something like the National Emblem of China.
The Chinese name means "Bear Cat", with this if you read it on the contrary, then it means the same. His western name comes from a small panda. Previously, a spotted Bear was also called (Ailuropus Melanoleucus).
This species is on the verge of extinction and is listed in the International Red Book.

Where else can you see through the thickets of the century bamboo lazily weighing bear from 30 to 150kg., Neighboring young bamboo shoots … either dormant in the sun, cute snortty from flying insects.
China is a big country with great history and traditions. But with all the beauty and grandeur of the country there are problems. For example, in large cities you will not see a clean starry sky, going to the hotel’s balcony or lying on the lawn in the park, I was able to hang over the country, and the strong humidity in the subtropical strip does not allow the star light, like the sun, which can be seen as a blurred spot.
Also one of the problems of the country is literally the spitting population. As soon as the authorities did not fight with "camels" – all efforts are in vain. For information: At the moment, the system of fines is valid, for example, if your Earth’s Earth Action will be seen by law enforcement services, for one spit on the sidewalk (it does not matter whether you are a local resident or tourist) will have to lay out from your own pocket 300 ¥.
Also does not leave indifferent and the fact that the Chinese bring up kids. Boys and girls under two years old are not diapers, but a special cutting trousers.
Nice to observe not only the monuments of architectural heritage, but also the life of the Chinese. Culture of the relationship of Chinese men to the woman our can only learn: it does not carry bags with shopping, does not hold a child on the hands – a caring spouse helps. But such caring spouses are observed only in Shanghai.
Entertaining fact: in hotels, residential buildings, office buildings You will not find 13 floors, apartment rooms or hotel; and not only 13, but 4, 14, 24, 34.
Come to the Great China, see, surprise, for each of the tourists it opens from various sides, thereby producing the impression every time as for the first time.

To complete the article wants to famous all of the world with the words famous for its wisdom of Confucius (Kun Qui, Kun Tzu, 551-479. to N.NS.) who created the doctrine that for more than two thousand years has become the ideological basis of the Chinese Empire and most of the Far East:
"Being out of the house, keep yourself as if we take honored guests. Using the services of people, behave as if the solemn rite. Do not make another thing that you do not wish. Then not in the state, nor in the family will not be discontent".
