You often see pictures from China on our site. Why do we post them? Well, because lots of stuff that is going on in this Asian country, you won’t see anywhere else. The Chinese culture can be incomprehensible for us, weird and maybe something we can see as stupid, but hey, it’s their culture and there’s nothing you can do about it. Today we have another story which is categorized ‘Only in China’. If a child is lost in a large Chinese city, then in 99,9% of cases his parents will never see their child again. Now let’s see how very caring parents deal with this problem in an extraordinary way. I will tell no more. See for yourself.
Frankly, I am plagued by doubts. Maybe it's some kind of protection against theft of personal belongings? Or maybe it is the way the Chinese students craving for knowledge use to book their place in the library? Do you have any suggestions on this one? ;)
This interesting and rather unusual residential complex was built in China. The building consists of a set of blocks which are shifted by 2 meters horizontally. It was designed to gain additional space that was used for the construction of terraces. As for me, it looks something like a LEGO building, only in real life.
Harbin, north-eastern China, is hosting its 26th international ice and snow sculpture festival. This event is very unique and spectacular, especially during night with all the lights and colors. Massive buildings have been carved from ice like palaces, pagodas… and even a sphinx! Very amazing..
A 22-storey residential building had to be destroyed to make way for new real estate projects but due to technical reasons, the demolition failed. It happened on December 30 in Liuzhou, China. The blast broke the building into two parts but only one collapsed while the other one remained standing… but leaning to one side! More pics as well as one video await you inside the post.
Chinese roads are very dangerous. Recently, a truck driver carrying coal could fully notice it. I think that in the near future, few will dare to take this road having a large load )) And most importantly, that no one was hurt badly in this incident.
Well, I won’t discuss their dressing code and painted faces, it is a personal matter of each person. But there’s one thing I can’t understand, why they are so drawn to the graves, tombstones, and cemeteries in general. Not a good place to take pictures. A total disrespect for the dead
Several days ago, two trains collided in Shanghai subway. Of course, it suspended the subway train’s flow, which immediately caused chaos in the city. All the people rushed to the bus stops, the only way to get on a bus was to fight your way through. Here you have a vivid example of how one incident can easily paralyze the entire city.
This is one of the highest railways in the world. It connects Xining, Qinghai Province, to Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, in China. The total length of Qingzang railway is 1956 km. Construction of the 815 km section between Xining and Golmud was completed by 1984. This railway is the first to connect China proper with the Tibet Autonomous Region, which, due to its altitude and terrain, is the last province-level entity in mainland China to have a conventional railway. More than 960 km, or over 80% of the Golmud-Lhasa section, is at an altitude of more than 4,000 m. The 1,142-km Qinghai–Tibet railway from Golmud to Lhasa was completed on 12 October 2005. It opened to regular trial service on 1 July 2006. The trains are specially built for high altitude environment. From October 2006 five pairs of passenger trains run between Golmud and Lhasa, and one more pair between Xining and Golmud. The line has a capacity of eight pairs of passenger trains, and the carriages are specially built and have an oxygen supply for each passenger.
These special Chinese eggs are black inside with a greenish tint and look as if they were found during the excavations of an ancient Chinese city. That’s what thought foreigners first arrived in China, that it were simply stale eggs, and called them "Century eggs" (or hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg). They are usually marinated in a special way for a few weeks or even months, which gives an unpleasant odor (the scent is similar to the smell of ammonia). But they say that when the eggs are fully prepared, they are incredibly tasty. Well, would anyone like to try this Chinese delicacy? Don’t hurry with your answer, look at the pictures first ))
The New Year is a holiday where sometimes people cover big distances to meet with family, friends to celebrate it together. Wherever you live, you can buy a ticket on a train, plane, ship and to get to your destination. Anywhere, but not in China. In this country, to get on the train (the most accessible means of transport) in January will be very problematic, even if you have a ticket. After seeing the photos you will understand what that means.
In China, these ad flyers are everywhere: on poles, on the railing, and even on the pavement. And how to deal with them, ‘cause it would take lots of time to get rid of them using your hands? But there’s always a solution. See below.
It sure doesn’t look like an occidental wedding but it doesn’t mean it was not a happy and funny wedding. I think it’s always interesting to take a look at other cultures and see the way some things happen over there, like weddings for instance…
All this crowd here has come to meet prospective employers, recruiters. Frankly, it’s quite a show with so many job seekers. While there is nothing particularly surprising as China is having the largest population in the world.
