What is the food like in China?
Even if Chinese is your favourite takeaway, the dishes that you encounter on an Explore trip to China will probably be very different to anything you've had at home, with ingredients you might not have heard of. Internationally, it is Cantonese food that is popular, but cuisine you find in China will vary depending on the region you're visiting. You’ll find most dishes are made up of rice or noodles with fried vegetables and either steamed or boiled eggs served in a fragrant broth. For example, in the Sichuan province, such as the city of Chengdu, you'll find that the food is spicier as it includes spicy local peppers, while in Beijing the local speciality is delicious Peking duck.
