Transcript of Cultural differences between Mongolia and China

Cultural differences and similarities between Mongolia and China
"Do Mongolians use Chinese Hanzi?"
"How is Mongolian food?"
The Mongolian cuisine is overall characterized by simplicity. This fact was determined by the low number of the ingredients that are used when preparing Mongolian dishes. Also, the small variety of the ingredients is a consequence of the climatic conditions of the country. Because of the hard and long winters, Mongolians cannot crop many vegetables and their meals are mostly based on meats - beef,mutton, marmot and horsemeat predominate.

Chinese characters are logograms used in the writing of Chinese and some other Asian languages.
They have been adapted to write a number of other languages including: Japanese, where they are known as kanji, Korean, where they are known as hanja, and Vietnamese in a system known as chữ Nôm. Chinese characters constitute the oldest continuously used system of writing in the world.

Chinese food
The Chinese use a lot of oil, and evenly fry their food along with various flavors and spices. Their food mainly include duck, chicken, pork nd a lot of vegetables.

During the Han rule, 'Hanfu' dominated the clothing of the Chinese people. This is a round-neck robe. During the Manchu rule it was banned, and the 'Qipao' became the official clothing. A 'Qipao' is one-piece baggy dress with a high neck and tight skirt.
