Chinese Cuisine

No other people take their food as seriously as Chinese. Authentic Chinese food is delectable in flavor and astounding in its sheer variety. With 56 ethnic minority groups contributing recipes cultivated over centuries from the farthest corners of the country, China is justifiably famous for its claim as home to the most popular cuisine in the world.

You would be remiss if you didn't sample as many of China's regional cuisine as possible during the trip. For a real change of pace, stop by one of the food stalls at the local "night market, " and join neighborhood residents in sampling delicious fresh local foods; it will be an evening to remember, and the prices are great too. You are always welcome to join diners at local restaurants and teahouses in any city or town.

(Note: hygiene is quite good in China, even at food vendor stalls on the street. The possibility of an upset stomach is the exception, not the rule.)

Those who prefer a meal more familiar to their tastes may be surprised to discover the quality and variety of international dishes available in China today. American, Italian, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Korean, German, and French restaurants can be found at many 4 & 5-star hotels, and in shop- ping areas around Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong. Travelers with special dietary requests can make advance arrangements with most 4 & 5-star (or international chain-operated) hotels for vegetarian or special dishes.

Chinese cuisine has a long history, and is one of the Chinese cultural treasures. It is as famous all over the world as French cuisine. Chinese cookery has developed and matured over the centuries, forming a rich cultural content. It is characterized by fine selection of ingredients, precise processing, particular care to the amount of fire, and substantial nourishment. Local flavors and snacks, and special dishes have formed according to regions, local products, climate, historical factors, and eating habits.
