"Eat Areca" Sanya Local Custom Tip by shuguang

Sanya Local Customs: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  The women selling arecas
by shuguang

The local people enjoy chewing areca instead of chewing gum. I never try it , for it would dye your tongue like bloody. When I saw a man chewing a areca in his mouth , a strange idea is always in my mind. ---- Is he eating a living creature ?
