Does dining cause any problem for a western tourist in China?
Please do not worry about it. Chinese and Western cuisines are both available throughout China. If you require special meals due to religious or medical limitation, please inform us so that arrangements can be made in advance
What kind of meals will be available on my sightseeing tours?
At your sightseeing tours you will have a Chinese style lunch. If you have any special requirements, please inform us so that arrangements can be made in advance.
Can we taste different food during our trip? Or eat Chinese food throughout the trip?
Almost all the lunches and dinners offered are Chinese food, but we defer to your preferences and opinions. Any suggestions would be welcome. For small groups, we always leave some dinners to your own arrangement. Our guide will help you to find some popular Chinese or western restaurant, where you can order the meals as you like.
Do I get vegetarian meals in China?
If you take a private tour, it is OK to arrange the maigre food for you accordingly. Your special food request inform in advance is highly appreciate. However, for the strict vegetarian or people who are very strict on anti-pork, it would be more reasonable that we do not include the meals arrangement in our tour itinerary. Our professional tour guide will give you suggestion about the right restaurant according to your requests. No worries!
Is it possible to get knife, fork and spoon in Chinese restaurants?
Yes it is possible! Hotel-own and other big restaurants will lay out cutlery for you. If they do not do it directly, please do not hesitate to ask for it. They will understand that it is not easy for you to eat with chopsticks.
However, if you want to go to some smaller traditional Chinese restaurants, it might be that they have no cutlery available. If you see no other chance for yourself, then using cutlery, you have to bring by yourself.
