    10 Funny and Weird Facts about China

    1. The workers at the Hetaoping Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda wear panda suits to fool baby pandas. This way they prepare captive-born cubs to live in the wild.



    2. Traditionally, Chinese babies wear ‘kaidangku’ (literally ‘open-crotch pants’) instead of diapers. However, lately diapers sales have increased dramatically, few still respecting ‘the tradition’

    3. LuLu, a miniature pinscher become celebrity in Zhumadian, Henan Province, prefers to walk upright on her back legs. She even carries a teddy bear-shaped, just to give a more diva-like impression. Her owner taught her to walk upright when she was just four months old.



    4. China has a Dwarf Theme Park called ‘Kingdom of the Little People’. There are over 100 Chinese dwarves that sing and dance for the visitors. The $115 million worth park also features tiny dogs and tiny fruit trees.





    5. China has the world’s biggest mall. Nothing that surprising so far, but the problem is that the mall has been 99% vacant since opening in 2005. The New South China Mall in even has seven zones modeled on international regions (Paris, Venice, Amsterdam, Rome, California, Egypt, and the Caribbean). It includes a 25m replica of the Arc de Triomphe, a 2.1km canal with gondolas, and an indoor-outdoor roller coaster.



    6. Last year both the tallest men and tallest woman in the world were Chinese. Bao Xishun—nicknamed ‘the Big Guy’—is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as 2.47m (8 ft 1 in) tall. He was meanwhile surpassed by Sultan Kösen – 2.51 m (8 ft 3 in)
    The tallest woman, Yao Defen is listed in The Guinness Book of Records as 2.33m (7 ft 8 in ) tall. Unfortunately Yao died in November last year at the age of 40 from an unspecified illness.



    7. In 2010, Chinese launched a new vending machine. A very original one I’d say, since it’s not selling chips, sweets or coke, but living crabs. Apparently, the machine is selling around 200 crabs a day, with prices ranging from 2 to 7 dollars, depending on the size.



    8. In some parts of China, ‘pigtails’ are associated with a girl’s marital status. A young girl would wear two pigtails, and when she married, she would wear just one. This may have contributed to the Western view that pigtails are associated with children and young girls.



    9. We all know that chopsticks come from China. However, you probably didn’t know they were losing millions of acres of forest each year due to chopstick production. Greenpeace built four chopstick trees in a shopping center in Beijing in order to raise awareness on the damage done to the country’s forest resources and encouraging everyone to recycle their chopsticks instead of throwing them out.



    10. China’s military is training 10,000 pigeons as a ‘reserve pigeon army’ which is meant to serve as a back-up communication system. Who needs mobile phones when they have pigeons?

    The part with the pigeons is so funny. And poor babies. I can't help but imagining Luhan from ExoM with such a costume on as a baby

    That part about kids walking around with their bottoms showing is so true! My dad had a project in China a couple of years ago and the younger children walked around inside supermarkets with their bottoms flashing. I thought he was joking, but if it's also mentioned here, I guess it's gotta be true
