Some Bizarre Things You Will Only See in China

China is one of the most exotic destinations of all. It is a country that is completely different to others, even to those that are really close. It is a whole new world of strange traditions, customs, products and places. We gathered fifty photos that show how strange, incredible and bizarre living in China can be. You won't believe what they can eat, where they can live and what they can do. And the funny thing about it is that they are so used to it that don't even care about eating eggs boiled with piss. Take a look at these fifty images, they will certainly amaze you!

SELFIES WITH A TIGER

Considering that the chinese tiger can eat more than 40 kilograms of meat in a single seat, I don't think why would I want to be so close to one and even take a picture with my baby.

CROCODILES FOR SALE

Crocodile meat is used for medical purposes in China since the sixteenth century at least. They say it taste like chicken and they usually include it in soups. And it is sold in the market.

This insane hotel that looks like a ping pong paddle is part of a sport complex that is full of buildings that look like balls, paddles, rackets and stuff. The handle is an observation deck.

CROWDED

buzzfeed

China is the most populated country on earth, that makes it also the one with the biggest population density. That means that this happens when you go to a beach.

GOD

buzzfeed

Chinese people discovered that tourism is a big source of income, and they are doing their best to make foreigners comfortable translating things to english. I want God with vanilla, please.

HUSBAND AND WIFE

buzzfeed

Reading this you may think that chinese people is cannibal, but I don't think they are. They are just too literal with the translations and they rely too much on google translate.

WIKIPEDIA

buzzfeed

Like I said, they trust too much in translators and internet in general, but that's only because they want to give you the best treat. Don't eat the Wikipedia, is a little bit spicy.

THIS SIGN

flickr

This sign is asking you politely not to light up any explosives at this gas station. Thank god they did it, because I was think of lighting up some firecrackers while I wait.

COMBOS

twentytwowords

In China you can find odd combos like this one. Because it seems like you are most likely to need three Snicker bars when you buy batteries for your remote, right?

THIS THING

flickr

This weird guy that seems to be a cartoon character, hanging on a random street. I wonder if this is some kind of religious figure. If it is, then it has all my respect.

AWARDED CHICKEN

flickr

Yes, we might look like a not so clean street food restaurant. But we are more than that. Our chickens are awarded not only but four times. Take that, KFC.

TEABUCKS

flickr

In China you can find Teabucks, that is like a Starbucks but… well, of course: For tea. This is a nice way to mess with americans that are looking for their signature coffee shop.

A DUCK ON A LEASH

flickr

Who says you can't have ducks as pets? Well, if you ever visited a park with a duck lake you probably know the answer: They are assholes. Maybe the chinese ducks are more polite.

LIVING FROGS

twentytwowords

I wouldn't like to be the one that is in charge of this bin of live frogs in Walmart. How do they manage to keep them there? If that was my job I'm sure they would be hopping all around the market.

STRANGE ANIMALS

flickr

It seems like in China you can find not only turkeys, snakes and turtles, you can also see two headed wolves, babies raised by goats and monkeys with human faces. I wonder what this advertise.

FROZEN TURTLE

twentytwowords

We heard your prayers. You were tired of having to go to the creek every single day to grab your fresh turtle. Those days are over! Now you can keep a bunch of frozen turtles in your freezer.

INCEPTION OF TRUCKS

xiongmao-fanfan

You're probably thinking that China is pretty insecure, but that's not true. China is very safe, I'm sure they did the math to achieve this. But try not to be near this truck, just as a precaution.

THE RESULT

boredomtherapy

Ok, I take back what I said. It seems like they did a little miscalculation. Luckily the truck had no one on board. I don't know how is it hanging, though.

PEANUT BUTTER

buzzfeed

People are too into peanut butter. They are so into peanut butter that they are quite violent when it comes to it. Don't ever say shit about Peanut butter, ok?

MAGICAL DRUGS

flickr

I wonder if there's some kind of Chinese Hogwarts. If there is, this is probably their equivalent of Diagon Alley, where you can buy your magical school supplies and stuff.

CHEESE BABIES

flickr

If you are tired of regular babies you can try a cheese baby. They don't cry that much and you can taste a bite while you are watching tv. You can also find butter babies and pizza babies.

A SQUID

twentytwowords

Chinese children always fear the moment when their mothers tell them to go to the store to buy a crispy giant squid for dinner. I guess we are having squid soup tonight.

NAPS

buzzfeed

Naps are sacred in most parts of the world. In China they won't even wait to get home, they take naps wherever they can. On a chain, for example. That back is going to hurt.

THIS FUNNY FRIEND

flickr

This animal is called Takine and it is pretty popular in some chinese areas. It looks funny because it is kind of a mix between a sheep and an ox.

POLITE WARNING

flickr

It took me a while to understand that this is a sign with a photograph. I hope those two were not cheating on their couples, because that will be there forever.

EGGS

twentytwowords.com

In chinese markets you can find an insane amount of different eggs. I don't even want to know what animal laid that brown ones, and I don't want to taste them either.

A WINGED CAT

buzzfeed

I'm sure there's a good explanation for this miracle. Sadly the owner of the cat began to worry that he might fly away and cutted his wings. Poor little thing.

THIS PIG

buzzfeed

Poor pig, this looks uncomfortable, but I'm sure he (she?) is used to it. At least it is the only pig in the farm that can imitate the farmer and have a good laughs.

THIS UNDERWEAR

twentytwowords

In China you sure can find strange clothes. These men underwear, for example. That looks kinda comfortable though, but I'm really curious about the antibacterial effect, how does it work?

THIS ACT

boredomtherapy

This is the definition of daredevil. I mean, you can't find anything more daredevil than riding a bike on a wire with a dude hanging from a ladder above six hungry tigers.

THIS PLANE FAIL

boredomtherapy

Imagine being on an airplane and being forced to come down to push the aircraft. I don't know what they intend, though, are they trying to get the plane in the water?

DELICATESSEN

DELICATESSEN

I have too many questions about this photo. The only thing I get is that those are starfish, that are not gross but I won't eat them by any chance. But are those… lizards?

POLICE GEESE

taringa

In some chinese areas they use geese instead of police dogs. And if you are wondering if they are effective I'll ask you this one more time: Have you ever been in a duck lake?

oreore

Don't ask me why but in some subway stations in China there are vending machines that sell LIVE FROZEN CRABS. I'm glad, though. I usually want a frozen crab and can't find one.

SUICIDE PREVENTION

medium

In many chinese companies they install protective nets outside to prevent employee's suicide attempts. This is so much better than providing therapy, mental health or whatever. The worst part of this is that they are really helpful.

THE CORPSE BRIDE

rainews

Traditional chinese families believe that dead young unmarried relatives should be married. That's why they buy corpses to marry them. A corpse can cost up to 3,500 dollars, depending the "quality" of the dead person.

CANNED AIR

media

A lot of Chinese cities have very high levels of pollution, and that's why they sell bottles and cans of fresh air with different flavours, to escape from the smog.

COCKROACH FARMING

youtube

Cockroaches are used in China for medicine and cosmetics. And lately cockroach farms are starting to multiply. They keep millions of bugs in huge rooms, and they sold them for 20 dollars a pound.

GHOST CITIES

businessinsider

In occident we are used to cities that grow along with the population. But in China, Cities are created and built first and then occupied, generally by people that come from the rural areas.

NAIL HOUSES

cnn

In China there's a lot of development. But some people don't get used to progress, and don't want to leave their houses. Nail Houses are the houses that have to be left there because their inhabitants don't want to leave.

pajamas

chinesepeopledoyoustyle

In China people wear their pajamas everywhere, including public spaces and the streets. Wouldn't it be great to go to work in your pajamas without being judged? I would love to.

CHILLIN’

chinesepeoplehavenostyle

Actually, it is called "Chilling", a chinese lifestyle that treats the public space like private. That's why you can see people just hanging in the streets like if they are in their homes.

FACEKINI

betazeta

Facekinis are very popular in China. They are used to avoid sunburn, excessive UV ray exposition, and even jellyfish and insect stings. They are made of the same fabric as the swimming suits.

URINE EGGS

drinksfeed

Do you like boiled eggs? In China you can find eggs boiled in the urine of 10 years old boys. They gather the urine in schools. It is supposed to protect the body from heart attacks and joint pain.

BRIDE RENTAL

lifedaily

In China young men have a lot of pressure regarding marriage. They should marry young, and when they can't do it, they rent a bride to take a few photos and show the family that you got married.

PANDA SUITS

lifedaily

Pandas are a big deal in China. They look after them with much care and they use this funny (and kinda creepy) panda suits to fool cubs when they are rescuing them.

MOTHERS

pregnancy

In China motherhood is important (of course) and mothers must spend one month in bed after giving birth, in order to regain energy and "heal their wombs". Having more than one child is illegal.

KINGDOM OF THE LITTLE PEOPLE

triviahappy

In China there are a lot of crazy themed park. One of the craziest is The Kingdom of Little People, where little people are hired to perform in front of the crowds.

WORLD’S LONGEST BRIDGE

businessinsider

China not only has one but the two longest bridges in the world. The funny thing about the one you see in the picture, the Qingdao, is that not too many people use it.

FAKE STORES

businessinsider

Chinese cities are growing making gigantic steps, but in their own way: They build fake stores all over the country. They are not fake as in they are not stores, they are actual copies of American stores and products, like Apple.
