In winter, northern winds coming from high latitude areas are cold and dry;in summer, southern winds from sea areas at lower altitude are warm and moist.
The climate in China differs from region to region because of the country's extensive and complex topography.
Many Chinese dishes consist of noodles or rice prepared with vegetables, tofu, or meat, which is usually pork or chicken. Some Chinese dishes that you might have tried include Peking Duck, spicy Kung Pao Chicken, and dumplings filled with pork, chicken, or vegetables! Soup (like Wanton Soup or Egg Drop Soup) is also a regular part of most Chinese meals, and tea is a common drink. Frequently used ingredients include bean curd and soy sauce both made from soy beans, Five Spice Powder (a combination of cloves, cinnamon, star anise, fennel seeds, and Sichuan peppercorns), and bamboo shoots!

THREE CITIES IN CHINA
The region around Zhuji has been settled since Neolithic times and was the origin of the Wuyue culture. During the Spring and Autumn Period, it was the birthplace of the legendary beauty Xi Shi. After the state of Yue was absorbed into the unification of China, Qin Shi Huang formally codified the boundaries of Zhuji as a county in 222 BC. This status remained intact until 1989, when the State Council reclassified Zhuji as a city.
Haining is a county-level city in Zhejiang Province, China, and under the jurisdiction of Jiaxing. It is in the south side of Yangtze River Delta, and in the north of Zhejiang. It is 125 kilometers west of Shanghai, and 61.5 kilometers east of Hangzhou, the capital of the province. To its south lies the Qiantang River. The city has a land area of 731.03 sq. kilometers and a population of 640,000. Haining is known for its leather industry and spectacular tide in the Qiantang River.
FIVE THINGS TO DO IN HONG KONG
Take the tram to Victoria Peak
Labeled as one of the top ten most spectacular skylines, it’s no wonder Victoria Peak makes the "top list of things to do in Hong Kong." There’s no need to spend your entire day up at the Peak, just go for an hour or two, grab a milk tea and enjoy the view. The best time to visit (as any other travel site will reiterate) is right before the sun sets.
Ride the ferry to Lamma Island
Cruise the coast, feel the sand under your feet and take half a day to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. A peaceful place (there are no cars allowed), Lamma Island is only a twenty-minute ferry ride from Hong Kong Island. Arrive at the small fishing village of Sok Kwu Wan where there are two trails one can choose to hike. Both offer spectacular views and moderate to heavy hiking, but if you're on a schedule or want to spend some time enjoying the town, take the 'Family Trail.'
With cheap prices and lots to choose from, Hong Kong is a shopping haven.Bargaining is key and almost everywhere you go, it's easy to whittle the price down. Check out Chungking Mansions for the biggest bargains, Cat Street and Hollywood Road for traditional Chinese antiques and The Temple Street Night Market for unique gifts and a lively experience. If you have time take a day trip to Stanley Market, where after shopping, one can grab a bite to eat at one of the many cafes and restaurants overlooking the coast. While a day trip to Stanley is probably the most pleasant shopping experience, bargaining isn't as easy here as the vendors are accustomed to tourists arriving by the busload. Don't forget: The higher the price, the lower you should start your offer.
Visit Tian Tan 'Big' Buddha and walk down Wisdom Path
Standing next to an 111 foot tall statue of a Buddha. Yes, it's as cool as it sounds (although don't fool yourself into thinking it's thousands of years old, it's a bit of a letdown when you discover it was started in 1990 and completed three years later).
Have a picnic
Whether you prefer a view of the water or people watching in the park, Hong Kong is a haven for enjoying the outdoors. Purchase a cheap bottle of wine and snacks, then head to the IFC rooftop (located in Central), which is decorated with sofas, tables and armchairs for public use. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view of Victoria Harbor without paying the price.
