Fenghuang—- a wondeful place to travel in China

Before I came to U.S, I travelled to some other places in China. Fenghuang, a well-known place in Hunan province.

You could see there are so many houses beside the river in the picture, and that the most beautiful time of this place one day. At this moment, many locals, tourists and even lovers come here and hang out, they may see the appealing scenery, bathe in the gentle wind, and hear the local ballad. That’s really a fairyland in the world.

At the same time, you could choose to stay in a bar, drink some beer and try your best to feel the special atmosphere.

In a word, if you have chance to visit China, don’t ignore this wonderful place!

The Xiabu—-my favourite hotpot restaurant

This is a famous hotpot restaurant in Beijing, and it’s my favourite restaurant.

When the 2008 Olympics was held in Beijing, I was there and walked around. Suddenly, I felt hungry and found a place to eat, of course, this is Xiabu.

I like this restaurant for three aspects. First, the waiters here were nice and friendly to customers. When I went into the restaurant, I was guided by a waiter and assigned to a place to seat. Second, the price was appropriate, I just spent 4 dollars and enjoyed different kinds of dood, like shrimp, pork, beef, eggs, mushroom, noodles and so on. Third, the atmasphere was helpful for the meals, when you stayed there, it was just natural for you to order more food.

I have been there many times, and I really hope to get another chance to go when I went back to China.

The Chinese National Library

This is the Chinese National Library, a place full of books.

When I ended my GRE course in Beijing in 2009, I just felt lonely and didn’t know what to do. However, when I passed by this building, I felt shocked in my heart and decided to go in.

After I entered into that, I found that was really a palace, occupied by many kinds of books.

In the end, I spent totally a week to stay in this palace and enjoy the feeling of reading books! That’s amazing!

My favourite theatre

This is the “one hundred year lecture room” in Peking University, a place full of cultural presentation.

In the summer of 2009, when I was taking GRE courses in Beijing, I always came to this place and watch different kinds of performances. For example, the world famous ballet “Swan Lake”, some piano concerts, and even some movie shows. From these excellent elegant arts, I become more and more engaged in art and enjoyable to our life.

I hope to go back and see the show one day.

Red-roasted meat—-a special kind of Chinese food

 This dish was made by myself last night, an it has a special name——Red-roasted meat.

 It is very famous in China, which belongs to one of the well-known food in Hunan province. Most people in China love this food because the founding father of the People’s Republic of China, Mao zhedong or Chairman Mao, deeply appreciated this dish and spent most of his lifetime enjoying it.

 I completed this dish in three main steps: First, I put the meat, which is half fat and half thin, into the boiled water for twenty mintues, thus making the meat become almost ripe. Then I sliced it into small pieces. Second, I stir the ginger pieces, garlic pieces, and Mexico hot pepper with hot oil and fried them, then I put down the meat and mixed it with the above-mentioned stuff. Third, I use a pot and cooked the meat with litte fire. After one and a half hour, a delicious red-roasted is ready to eat.

However, this kind of food is full of fat, we need to control the amount that we consume, and appropriate amount would make us feel energetic and warm.

Just have a taste of this food when you have chance to visit China.
