So maybe this Mid-Autumn festival and Golden Week isn’t going to be quite the 24 carat holiday we’ve become accustomed too, with travel restrictions still in place. But maybe this is a chance to finally visit the floating mountains in Zhangjiajie, or the terracotta warriors of Xi’an, or cycle through the mountains of guilin.
Whether it’s a staycation or a short trip to one of China’s picturesque provinces, we’ve thought of five things you can have a try of during the holiday:
Unless you’ve got a rational fear of needles then why not? Acupuncture is an ancient form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), thought to date back over 2,000 years. If you’re suffering from back pain, regular migraines, heartbreak, or a stubbed toe then acupuncture might provide some effective pain relief. We are after all in the land of alternative medicine.
24 hour Beer Lady Challenge
Just a quick disclaimer that we are not encouraging a 24-hour drinking binge. But as one of the few bars we know of that is open for 24 hours you must ask yourself – could you survive 24 hours in a bar? You’d need a trip to Kaixuan Lu in Shanghai for this, and just make sure you DON’T end up like this guy (drink responsibly!)
We know just how tiring life can be, so take this week long holiday to catch up on some much needed sleep. Who knows, maybe you could break the record for the longest every sleep – challenge yourself!
Eat your own body weight in dumplings
It could be the most versatile food out there with a filling for everyone, so why not give yourself a new record. And the great thing is this is an activity you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home!
Don’t worry, Sherpa’s isn’t going anywhere. We’ll be here through the holidays still delivering to you, but wouldn’t it be a great time to brush up on your cooking skills? With so many unique cuisines in China, you could finally master your favourite dish and be the talk of the town.
