I have learned a lot from my Chinesefriends, teachers and especially from “Over view of China” course. In thiscourse I learned a lot about Chinese people’s behaviour, Chinese foods,language, likes and dislikes of Chinese people, history of China, Chinesefestivals, geography of China and important places to visit. So, I can say Ilearned both from this course as well as my own personal experience whileinteraction with Chinese people and traveling to resorts like Temple of Heaven,Yuanmingyuan Park and Forbidden City. Chinese PeopleBefore I came here I thought thatChinese people are short in height but now I realized that they are also tall.They are so hardworking.
Many times I asked Chinese to help me and I was neverdisappointed. They are very curious about their health. Only barrier between meand Chinese people is language barrier. I start conversation from Ni hao andafter that I say Zaijian.
Sometimes it seems very funny. Because they can’tspeak English and me neither Chinese. Chinese LanguageUpon arrival it was surprising thatmost of the Chinese people can’t speak English. They can only speak Chinese.The language is one of China’s strengths in achieving its current levels ofdevelopment. Regardless of dialectic, the language is the same North, East,South and West. A Common language gives China a common purpose.
To communicatewith people at shops and supermarket we have to learn Chinese. We have also acourse “Chinese Language” in this semester. We are trying our best to learnthis language and when we speak few words we become excited. We hope before thestart of next year we would be capable enough to speak Chinese at supermarketswhile interaction with shopkeepers. Because in the university our teachers andother students can speak English but at supermarkets and tourists places itseems very difficult to purchase any item and ask for directions. Chinese CultureChinese culture is different from ofour country.
They have their history round about 3000 BC back. Chinese peoplehave their own beliefs and festivals. The Chinese culture belongs not onlyto the Chinese but also to the whole world. -Hu JintaoThey have different Chinesetraditional thoughts like Confucianism, Taoism and Bohism. They have their owncalendar and Zodiac.
Chinese festivals are also very important and they arecelebrated on countrywide. Chinese CuisineChinese cuisine is an important partof Chinese culture, which includes cuisine originating from the diverse regionsof China, as well as from Chinese people in other parts of the world. Becauseof the Chinese diaspora and historical power of the country, Chinese cuisinehas influenced many other cuisines in Asia, with modifications made to cater tolocal palates. I like to visit canteen of myuniversity. Because we are Muslims so we can’t eat all foods.
We go to Muslimcanteen and there are a lot of dishes. But I like noodles the most. Last weekduring my tour to Tianjin I went to Hotel. Meal I had at that hotel was bestever since I was here in China. Tourist PlacesChina is a beautiful country. It has plateaus, plains, basins, foothills, andmountains. During my stay at Beijing I visited many beautiful places in Beijingand out of Beijing.
My first visit was to Beijing Botanical Garden. I can’tforget that memorable trip. Botanical garden has so many greenery and lakes init. Second tour was to Temple of Heaven. I also visited Yuanmingyuan Park andSummer Palace. These all places are very charming and attractive. I observedthat on all the places there is same building structures, though it is verybeautiful.
There are so many resorts and tourists places in Beijing as well asall over the China. Great Wall of China is also one of the Wonderof the World. It is really an eye-opening place to visit. During holidays, somany visitors rushes toward Great Wall. Visiting such places is also helpful in understanding Chinese culture,language and people.
Alipay & Wechat PaymentIf I could take something with me to Pakistanfirst of all I would choose wechat and aplipay payment and then bullet train. Ibecame really excited after my arrival when I came to know that now I didn’thave to take paper money and my wallet with me in the superstore. We goeverywhere without paper money. We can even transfer funds to friends and topup mobile. Alipay, Taobao & JDAlipayand taobao are online shopping stores.
Both are amazing. Whenever I want to buyany item I just go to taobao app and order online. Bill is paid through alipay.I receive my ordered item after 3 or 4 days. JD takes less delivery time t
