A Chinese Night Market Posted by sasha on Feb 28, 2018 in Uncategorized
One of my favorite things to do when traveling to new cities in China is finding the local night market (夜市 – yè shì). There’s always so much delicious food being cooked up, and it’s so cheap that you can try several different things. Join me on a short tour of a Chinese night market in a short video.
Watch the video and learn some Chinese words for a few typical dishes. You’ll find the vocabulary list below to study:
