Chinese culture and traditions are such an exciting, but widely misunderstood topic.

For example, did you know that Fortune Cookies are not Chinese tradition? And chop suey was invented in the US? This website will break down all the common myths around Chinese culture.

It also shares interesting aspects of Chinese history. You may have come across funny, so-called ‘Chinese’ sayings like “Man who run in front of car get tired. Man who run behind car get exhausted”. This website will give you the proper history of the very intelligent man often associated with silly sayings; Confucious. Chinese history doesn’t have much in the way of religion but does have a lot of history of philosophy and philosophers. Confucious was just one those philosophers. Religion in China largely centered around Christianity and Islam, though the practitioners of those religions are still very much in the minority (with Islam growing at quite a rate).

Chinese culture is known for its association with ‘lucky’ numbers and colours. This website will teach you about the meanings behind this and how it is used in Chinese culture today.

Chinese food has always been an interesting topic for the Western world. Did you know that Chinese desserts are not all that sweet? The Chinese don’t eat very sweet food in general.

You may not associate the Chinese with gambling, but illegal gambling is actually a large problem in China. You can read the article ‘Gambling in China’ to find out more, and to learn about the Chinese game Mah-Jong.
