Once you’ve settled in, there’s so much to see and discover in China! From exotic dishes to colorful festivals, from Chinese games in the park to museums filled with history and art — China is a vast country with a long history, just waiting for you to explore all the culture it has to offer.
One of the most fun and interesting parts of immersing yourself in a new culture is getting to experience special festivals and holidays. The most famous ones in China are the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) and the Mid-Autumn Festival. Other not-to-be-missed festivals include the Dragon Boat Festival and Lantern Festival. Have fun trying out the special Chinese foods served during these festivals, like moon cakes and zongzi. At other times of the year, be sure to visit local Chinese restaurants in the city you’re living in to get a taste of authentic Chinese cuisine.
