Where to go in China
If you're going to China, you're most likely to land in Beijing the capital and a city with one of the world's busiest airports. The variety of sights you can enjoy is so big hat it's even hard to number. Here are only several of popular touristic attractions:
of course have a walk on The Great Wall;
watch impressing Terracota Warriors;
watch little cute pandas at one of panda's nurseries;
try shopping on Tian Zi Fang in Shanghai;
enjoy the view of Hong Kong skyline.
In last time shopping tours are becoming very popular, and that's not surprising here you can buy everything, from spoon to furniture, much cheaper than anywhere else. Some agencies even offer special guided tours through local markets and shopping malls.
Like anything else, the cuisine is also very different in each region of the country. But several meals are the same all over the country. For example, traditional Chinese tea of all sorts is served everywhere. Just like in all other countries of Asia, rice is very popular in China. It can be simply boiled or fried with various vegetables, seafood or meat. Also don't miss the famous roasted Peking duck and big Chinese dumplings.
In many regions people don't speak English. In most of the small restaurants where locals go it's really unlikely to find English menu. But it would be OK to point on someone's plate and ask to cook the same meal for you in China there aren't strict rules about privacy as there are in European tradition.
In local restaurants you don't need to tip, no one won't understand it. Call the manager and tell in front of all staff how satisfied you are with a food and a service. If you can't find a manager, just show thumbs up to your waiter her or she will definitely appreciate it.
China has a lot of sites and places to impress the tourist so just come and see it by your own eyes.
