BEIJING CULTURE - CULTURE IN BEIJING CHINA

Beijing CultureBeijing Culture - In Beijing the cultural aspects of the city have survived both time and war. Still the area has wonderful structures, museums and many pieces of artwork that line the city and make visitors so aware of the intricate patience of its people.

One of the main forms of Art in China is accomplished with a brush and ink is called Calligraphy. It has been known as China's highest form of visual art. The people put very much attention on this art form. It has been said that they regard a person's character by being judged as to the elegance of their handwriting!

The official Chinese language spoken in Beijing is Mandarin, however the Chinese call it Putonghua. Almost 70 percent of the population in China speaks Putonghua.

The theatre or Opera in China is a major cultural attraction and it has inspired the martial arts and acrobats also because of the role of the music. The area is filled with theatres and rightly so. The Chinese people love music as well as art and hold it closely to their souls.

Chinese Cuisine is known in four regional categories: Beijing/Mandarin and Shandong, Cantonese and Chaozhou, Shanghainese, and Sichuan. The Chinese drink is Tea and beer the most alcoholic. In the restaurants in Beijing you may feast upon the Chinese cuisine and tasty it is. Their well-known foods are frequently loved by many a visitor to their land.

So much of the way of the Chinese is interesting to say the least and as you see their country and learn their ways it is more than a deeply bound respect you will find for the city as well as its people. It is the appreciation that will liken you to want to visit again and again, perhaps the next time knowing the proper culture etiquettes to be more like them.
