    Chinas unusual meats and markets, anyone has experience?

    World knows that China has a lot of not only exotic foods but somehow for others weird and so unaceptable to eat meats, like for example dog meats and other else which I do not want to mention anymore. They even have markets for these.

    As tourists, did you guys even had the courage to try those when you visited there? And did you visited one of this markets where they sell such meats? How was it?

    Never been there, but a friend of mine has. He was actually told avoiding the markets was the best choice, it seems eating over there can get you very sick and be really dangerous! I've heard about the dog eating habits of some chinese people, I even watched a youtube video on that... they seem to consume the whole dog! yikes!

    Oh really, that sounds kind a creepy now! I have seen some pics of it as well and I would say the same, it would absoultely make yu sick. I mean I do not want to be so judgemental here, but c'mon, we have our own opinion on that. Well, in fairness to them, I understand that for them that is nothing unusual so they won't see any disgust about it.

    Thanks for the warning Trellum!

    I've been to the markets but never seen any dogs-for-meat on sale. I wouldn't advise on eating there but definitely worth a look. You will see soft shelled long neck turtles (even in supermarkets), and i saw some frogs and snakes for sale once. Weirdest thing i saw was what looked like bats or flying foxes dried out and laid on the streets. Great place if you're into seeing new and different stuff.
