"Gracious host" Longyan Local Custom Tip by cheekychic

Longyan Local Customs: 3 reviews and 2 photos

Chinese have always been known to be gracious hosts, they always make sure their guests are well taken care of and also WELL FED! My relatives would feed me 5-6 meals a day - rice, noodles, soups, etc.. non stop.. lol.
What caught me by surprise is when we went for course dinner at restaurants, it's an over 20 dish dinner for 10 person! I was told it's ashamed if the guests go back hungry.. so i had to stuff myself silly for 2 dinners.. *grin*
