I think it’s the most important reason to travel anywhere to be honest
But really important, if you are coming from the UK to think about what the food will be like.
Obviously, it’s no secret that some Chinese food can be very spicy, particularly in some of the southern provinces like Sichuan.
I would try eating some authentic, in other words, real Chinese food before you come or you may be quite surprised by what you eat.
If you are vegetarian, I think it is possible to have a balanced diet but you might want to think about phrases and language to help you ask for food without any meat. For example, even vegetables can be served with meat
One more thing, food is so important to Chinese culture, people eat together and share large plates. Remember to practice using chopsticks (not a knife and fork) and if you eat everything on the table, expect more to arrive from your generous host.
I am still a bit confused about who should pay the bill at the end of the meal and when, but during special dinners, the host or leader, for instance your boss, of the group will sit at the head of the table and often will make speeches and pour you tea.
My favourite Chinese food is called ‘ Da Pan Gee’, and it’s a big plate of chicken in a very spicy sauce with large noodles to be added later to sauce on the plate. Delicious!
And this is one that I made myself, I even pulled the noodles myself….. and my family didn’t like it….oh well. ..
