It is not only what you do in China that leaves an impression what you see also leaves a lasting memory. China has many construction marvels that stun and wow you into appreciation. Across China there are many different styles of architecture. The new and emerging style is very western and futuristic in the aid of rejuvenating the country into the 21st Century. However, the real beauty lies beneath the fancy skyscrapers and glass buildings within the traditional buildings in and amongst the busy cities. Embark on a China Tour and explore what the country has to offer whilst staying at one of China Hotels.

 

Chinese architecture refers to a style of architecture that has taken shape in East Asia over many centuries. The structural principles of Chinese architecture have remained largely unchanged, the main changes being only the decorative details. Since the Tang Dynasty, Chinese architecture has had a major influence on the architectural styles of Korea, Vietnam, and Japan. In recent times many western Chinese architects have tried to merge this traditional style with the newly developing modern architecture however, the success of these buildings has not sparked any triumph within the local people.

 

Since the early 20th Century the modern architecture has been setting new precedence within the industry as the demands for building use are exceeding those for which Chinese architecture can cater for. The need for greater floor area and more volume triggers the need for new building techniques and the introduction of new materials. The traditional way of building in China used to conjure up buildings that were no more than three or four stories high, inadequate for the desires nowadays.

 

In the past timber was used to create buildings and intricate designs. However due to the corrosive nature of the material the life span of these buildings was cut short and the service required from them was still needed. From the Tang Dynasty brick and stone became the most prominent material used in Chinese construction.

Traditional Chinese architecture was originally divided into three main categories that distinguished areas and provided a genetic make up of the urban environment in China. The first category was that of the Commoner. These were mainly living quarters and were designed around a centralized living area, which in turn ended up producing ‘u’ shaped buildings. The second category was called Imperial. This style of building was only used for the Emperors of China. A key feature of these buildings is the use of yellow roof tiles. Yellow was the imperial color. The final category was reserved for all Religious buildings. These mainly followed suit of the imperial building design.

These buildings now all bear important cultural heritage within China, there presence is most definitely felt amongst the newer emerging buildings especially in the cities. All of them posses a charm and extensive character that just cannot be created with sharp lines and glass. They are irreplaceable, therefore making them a must see attraction. Fly over via Air China and witness these spectacles for yourself.

 

Sichuan Cuisine

On August 23, 2011, in China Travel Gossip, Restaurants & Food, Tips & Ideas, by Jack Li

I am sure some of you have ordered a ‘Szechwan Chicken’ before in a Chinese restaurant back home, but there is much more behind this glorious cuisine.

I am sure some of you have ordered a ‘Szechwan Chicken’ before in a Chinese restaurant back home, but there is much more behind this glorious cuisine. Firstly, it is more known in China as ‘Sichuan’ as opposed to the Western term, ‘Szechwan’ or ‘Szechuan.’ Chinese food in general is delicious, however, Sichuan has a unique taste to it. It is known for its bold flavors, spiciness, due to its vast use of garlic and chili peppers. Peanuts, sesame paste and ginger are also essential ingredients to Sichuan cooking. When you are on your China Tours you should ask your China Hotels for directions to your nearest Sichuan restaurant.

Sichuan Province is commonly known as the ‘heavenly country’ due to its huge amount of food and natural resources, thus the region is famous for its food. It is the first thing that comes to my head when I think of Sichuan Province. There are seven basic flavors: sour, pungent, hot, sweet, bitter, aromatic and salty. Furthermore, there are 5 types of Sichuan foods: sumptuous banquet, ordinary banquet, popularized food and snacks.

I am sure some of you are familiar with Kung Pao Chicken. The Chinese word for it is ‘gongbao jiding’ just in case you wish to order it in a restaurant where the menu is not in English. The dish was in fact named after Ding Baozhan, a late Qing Dynasty official. His titlse was ‘Gong Bao’ and thus the name ‘Kung Pao’ derived from it. Kung Pao chicken consisnts mainly of diced chicken. The wok is seasoned and then chili peppers and Sichuan peppercorns are fried to add fragrance to the oil. The dish itself is also mixed with peanuts before being topped off with Shaoxing wine to enhance the flavor of the marinade.

Mapo doufu is another special Sichuan dish. It is a combination of tofu set in a spicy, bean-based sauce. Doufu is often cooked with minced meat, usually pork or beef. Sometimes you can vary the ingredients and add water chestnuts, onions and other vegetables to the dish.

My favorite Chinese dishes are pork-based, therefore the Sichuan dish I would strongly recommend is a dish called “Twice Cooked Pork” or “Hui Guo Rou.” Its name is as it is because the dish is essentially cooked twice before serving. First, by boiling the belly pork steak chunks with slices of ginger and salt. The next step is to cut the pork into small slices and place them back in the wok to be fried. Cabbage and peppers or leaks usually accompany the dish.

Finally, Chinese cuisine would not be complete without noodles, thus I suggest you try the Sichuan style noodles, referred to as, ‘Dan Dan Noodles,’ which literally translates to ‘Peddler’s noodles.’ The dish consists of a spice sauce containing vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan pepper, and minced pork, scallions served over noodles. It is named after a type of carrying pole (dan dan), which was used by walking vendors who sold the dish on the street.

As I stated earlier, I love Chinese food, and one thing I love more than Chinese food is spicy food. So Sichuan has it all. If you have a taste for hot dishes, I thoroughly recommend you make Sichuan one of your first dining experiences in China. Book your Air China flights now to experience this unique culinary culture.

Being one of the four ancient capitals of China, Nanjing has always been a
cultural center attracting intellectuals from all over the country. In the Tang
and Song dynasties, Nanjing was a place where poets gathered and composed poems reminiscent of its luxurious past; during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the city was the official imperial examination center for the Jiangnan region, again acting as a hub where different thoughts and opinions converged and thrived. Luxury China Hotels are also remarkable buildings in Nanjing, do not hesitate on coming to this amazing city to enrich your culture, get your China Flights as soon as possible!

Today, with a long cultural tradition and strong support from local
educational institutions, Nanjing is commonly viewed as a “city of culture” and
one of the more pleasant cities to live in China.

Art

Some of the leading art groups of China are based in Nanjing; they include:
Qianxian Dance Company, Nanjing Dance Company, Jiangsu Peking Opera Institute, Nanjing Xiaohonghua Art Company are just a few to list.

Jiangsu Art Gallery is the largest gallery in Jiangsu Province, presenting some of the best traditional and contemporary art pieces of China; many other smaller-scale galleries, such as Red Chamber Art Garden and Jinling Stone Gallery, also have their own special exhibitions.

Festivals

Many traditional festivals and customs were observed in the old times,
which included climbing the City Wall on January 16, bathing in Qing Xi on March 3, hill hiking on September 9 and others (the dates are in Chinese lunar calendar). Almost none of them, however, are still celebrated by modern Nanjingese.

Instead, Nanjing, as a popular tourist destination, hosts a series of
government organized events throughout the year. The annual International Plum Blossom Festival held in Plum Hill, the largest plum collection in
China, attracts thousands of tourists both domestically and internationally.
Other events include Nanjing Baima Peach Blossom and Kite Festival, Jiangxin
Zhou Fruit Festival and Linggu Temple Sweet Osmanthus Festival.

Libraries

Nanjing Library, founded in 1907, houses more than 7 million volumes of printed materials and is the third largest library in China, after the National Library in Beijing and Shanghai Library.

Nanjing University Library, owned by Nanjing University, with a collection of 4.2 million volumes, is also one of the leading university libraries. More than 100 multimedia networked-computers are available to readers.

Museums

Nanjing has some of the oldest and finest museums in China. Nanjing Museum, formerly known as National Central Museum under KMT rule, is the first modern museum and remains as one of the leading museums in China. Other museums include the China Modern History Museum in the Presidential Palace, the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall,  the City Museum of Nanjing, the Taiping Kingdom History Museum, the Nanjing Customs Museum, the Nanjing City Wall Cultural Museum, and a small museum and tomb honoring the 15th century seafaring admiral Zheng He.

Theatre

Most of Nanjing’s major theatres are multi-purpose, used as convention
halls, cinemas, musical halls and theatres on different occasions. The major
theatres include the People’s Convention Hall and the Nanjing Arts and Culture Center. Jiangsu Province Kun Opera is one of the best theatres for Kunqu, China’s oldest stage art. It is considered a conservative and traditional troupe. Nanjing also has professional opera troupes for the Yang, Yue (shaoxing), Xi and Jing (Chinese opera varieties) as well as Suzhou pingtan, spoken theatre, and puppet theatre.

Chinese Sports

Although China has long been associated with the martial arts, China nowadays has a big variety of competitive sports. Traditional Chinese culture regards physical fitness as an important aspect, and, since the 20th century, a large number of sports activities, both Western and traditionally Chinese, are popular in China. For more information about China check out the following link China Travel, and to make your trip easy and cheap get your flight tickets in Air China.

Soccer, basketball, and ping pong are the main sports in China. In 1994, Chinese football became the first sport to take the professionalization road and in its wake similar reforms were carried out in basketball, volleyball, ping pong and weigi. The process brought with it commercialization; sport associations became profit-making entities and a club system came into being; professional leagues formed, improving China’s sports environment; and commercial management systems took shape. The professionalization of sports has encouraged the emergence of a sports management market and business-structured systems. Sports club operations now cover ticket sales, advertising, club transfers, commercial matches, television broadcasting and other commercial activities. Another aspect of the reform is that some Chinese athletes have joined foreign professional leagues. For instance, basketball star Yao Ming entered the NBA in the 2002 draft.

China led the gold medal count (51) at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games which were held in Beijing from 8 August to 24 August 2008

 

TRADITIONAL SPORTS

Traditional sports with distinct Chinese characteristics are also very popular, including martial arts, taijiquan (shadow boxing), qigong (a system of deep breathing exercises), xiangqi and weiqi.

Taijiquan is a kind of Chinese boxing, combining control of breath, mind and body. It emphasizes body movement following mind movements, tempering toughness with gentleness and graceful carriage. Qigong is a unique Chinese way of keeping fit. It aims at enhancing health, prolonging life, curing illness and improving physiological functions by concentrating the mind and regulating the breath. There are various entertaining and competitive sports activities in the minority-inhabited areas, for example, wrestling and horsemanship among Mongols, Uygurs and Kazaks; Tibetan yak racing; ethnic Korean “seesaw jumping”; crossbow archery among the Miao, and dragon-boat racing among the Dai ethnic minority.

OLYMPIC GAMES

In July 2001, Beijing finally succeeded in its bid to bring the 2008 Olympic Games. Seven venues, including the National Stadium and the National Swimming Centre have ushered in a new period of contemporary architecture for Beijing.

Since 1949, China has participated in eight Summer Olympics and nine Winter Olympics, winning 385 medals at the Summer Olympics and 44 medals at the Winter Olympics. At  Los Angeles,Barcelona and Atlanta Olympics, China came fourth in the gold medals table, second at the Athens Olympics and first at the Beijing Olympics.

Travel to Beijing to day and visit one of the many historical sites in the city. Lama temple also known as the palace of peace and harmony is both a temple and a school of Tibetan Buddhism located in the northeast of Beijing. This temple is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist temples in the world.  Fly with air China and see the beautiful work of artistry in the Lama temple.

Lama temple is also referred to as the YongHeGong temple. The construction of the temple originally started in the Qing Dynasty in 1694. Initially, it was used as an official residence for court eunuchs, and then the emperor’s son converted it into the court of Prince YongZheng. After the death of the YongZheng, half of the temple was changed into a lamasery while the other half remained an imperial palace. YongZheng’s casket was placed in the temple for those who wanted to mourn his death. Emperor QianLong, successor to YongZheng, transformed the yellow tiles in the temple into blue, giving the building and imperial look. The temple has now become a national centre of Lama administration.

There are five main halls separated by courtyards in the lama temple: the Hall of Heavenly Kings (Tian Wang Dian Hall), the Hall of Harmony and Peace (YongHeGong), the Hall of Everlasting protection (YongYouDian), the Hall of Wheel of the Law (FalunDian) and the Pavilion of Ten Thousand Happiness (WanFuGe). The first courtyard in YongHeGong is tilted Gate of Peace Declaration. Following this gate is another titled Gate of Peace. Manchu, Mongolian and Tibetan are inscribed in Chinese on the pavilion stand in the temple to mark the history of the temple.

The Hall of the Heavenly Kings was previously the main entrance of the building. There are two pagoda’s located on each side of the statue of the Maitreya Buddha. Small Buddhist images are placed next to each pagoda symbolizing longevity. The Hall of Harmony and Peace represents the main building of YongHeGong. Three bronze statues of Buddha’s are located inside the hall. A statue of the Gautama Buddha is at the center with the statue of Kasyapa on the right and the statue of Maltreya on the left.

The Hall of Everlasting protection was emperor YongZheng’s living quarter; his coffin is currently buried in this location. The Hall of wheel of the Law consists of five pagodas that serve as a place for reading scriptures and conducting religious ceremonies. It also has the statue of Tsong Khapa founder of the Geluk school of Buddhism, on a lotus. The hall has statues of arhats made out of gold, silver, copper, iron and tin.

The pavilion of ten thousand happiness contains the statue of the Maitreya Buddha carved from a single piece of white sandalwood. The statue is one of three artworks in the temple that were included in the Guinness book of record.

Spring festival is the most popular festival in the Chinese culture. It is a time when family members come together to celebrate. In other countries, spring festival is known as New Year. The difference is the time the festivals are celebrated. In the Chinese community, the spring festival is falls on the first day of the first lunar month, ranging from ending of January to mid February. For other countries, the New Year always falls on January first. In my China flight, I participated in the celebration of the Chinese New year. Try Air china, and the get best deal I received on my trip to China.

Chinese New Year, originated during the Shang dynasty in sixteen hundred. In the beginning, people started by making sacrifices to both the gods and the ancestors.  Many practices were carried out during the festival. Some are still practiced while others have been abandoned.

On the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month, family members usually make laba porridge, which is made out of glutinous rice, millet, seeds of Job’s tears, jujube berries, lotus seeds, beans, longan and gingko. On the 23rd day of the twelfth lunar month, people offer sacrifice to the kitchen god, although some families make food for themselves and their family members. The twenty-third day is known as preliminary Eve. The day after the eve is referred to as seeing the New Year.

During the period of the spring festival is when transportation system is the busiest in China, This is because people travel from all parts of China and the world to visit their family members.  Shopping centers are also busy with people buying materials needed for the celebration of the festival. Cooking materials range from chicken, flour, duck, fish, meat, to cooking oil and fruits. Decorations as well as new clothes and shoes are purchased as a gift for children and family members.  The practice of sharing gift during holiday season in the Chinese culture is similar to Christmas period in other countries.

Prior to New Year day, people clean out their homes, clothes and household utensils in preparation for the upcoming year. This behavior is a way of starting the New Year clean. Door panels usually have spring festival couplets posted on them, highlighting the Chinese characters. Pictures of Chinese gods are also posted to defer evil spirit.

Spring festival is a time for happiness in the Chinese community. Family members make it important to have family dinner together. The meal is usually richer than any other day. Delicacies such as chicken, fish and bean curd are always included. By custom, each member of the family is supposed to stay awake to see the New Year.

On the day of spring festival, people get dressed and extend greetings to their family and loved ones. Dumpling is a popular meal for breakfast in the north. In Chinese, it means farewell to old year and welcome to the New Year. The dumpling is shaped in the form of gold ingot from ancient China. People eat the dumpling and wish for money.

The Chinese spring festival is an amazing celebration to attend. For those of you who have not been to china, plan your trip by booking one of the China Flights available, and join the Chinese people in celebrating their most important festival.
