what is the history of chineese food?
Asked by hardik on Jul. 5, 2010
According to Wikipedia, the history of Chinese cuisine in China traced back to Peking Man and his use of fire and the invention of "cuisine" some 400,000 years ago. Some other accounts of the history of Chinese cuisine takes the beginning to the Chinese stone age, where the cultivation of rice and the production of noodles, both typical representations of Chinese cuisine as we have known today, are understood from archaeological findings.
There are eight styles of distinct regional cooking in China. Of them, the most influential and representative ones are the culinary styles of Lu, Chuan, Yue, Min, Su, Zhe, Xiang and Hui.
Each culinary style is inseparable from its long history and influenced by geography, climate, resources, specialties and dining habits of each area. Some descriptions of the eight culinary schools are: the cuisines of Jiangsu and Zhejiang have been compared to delicate beauties of the Yangtze River Delta; those of Shandong and Anhui have been compared to simple but sturdy men of the north; those of Guangdong and Fujian are compared to elegant nobles; those of Sichuan and Hunan are likened to people with substantial and varied accomplishments.
The cooking techniques of each of the Chinese culinary schools are unique and the dishes have their own distinguished characteristics.

The weather from Oct 8-12 is predicted to be hot and sunny, with few rainfall, temperature is 28-34C, but there is much cooler at early mornings and at evenings, so you should also prepare long sleeve light jackets and long pants.

I plan to travel to guilin in two days time, with the recent flood happening in Guilin, is it advisable to go as plan? How bad is the flood?
Asked by Simon on Jun. 22, 2010
Hi. Welcome to Guilin! Yes the tour can go as planned. Though there is heavy rain recently, there are still many tourists going tours in Guilin. But it is not recommended to go to Longji Rice Terraces, because it is located in mountainous area, it is not safe to go there in case of mudslide. Other places are all smooth and safe.

Asked by jimmy teh on Jun. 20, 2010
Hello Jimmy. Welcome to Guilin. Yes it is indeed been raining heavily these days in Guilin, and at some point water level was so high that Li River cruise had to be stopped. But the rain did not stop tourists, I saw many of them these days.
It is getting better now because the rain is smaller when you visit. But you should still prepare umbrellas or raincoats. Also it is very hot now in Guilin, wear what you wear in summer in your country.

Topic From: Guilin Weather
I plan to visit Guilin in month of July, what type of cloths suitable for us to wear during this month? Is it convenience to find a Muslims food in Guilin?
Your kind assistance in this matter is highly appreciate.
Asked by Jurina on Jun. 14, 2010
Hi! Welcome to Guilin! July is one of the best times to visit Guilin. It is summer, so it will be hot and sunny. You can wear what you usually wear during summer in your country. During night time, it is breezy and cool, very comfortable if you take a stroll around. You can prepare a long-sleeve light coat just in case. There is a mosque at Chongshan Road (崇善路), and there is a Muslim canteen next to it, serving very simple dishes like noodles, fried rice and wonton. And not far from the mosque there is also a bigger Muslim restaurant.
