10 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT CHINA
1. FOOTBALL (SOCCER) WAS INVENTED HERE
2.200 years ago, the game that later turned into football (soccer) was invented in China.
The world’s first soccer ball was a leather ball filled with feathers and hair, and the game was called ‘Tsu’ Chu,’ which literally means ‘kicking ball.’
2. CHINA IS THE WORLD’S MOST POPULOUS COUNTRY
With more than 1.4 billion people, China holds the world record for having the largest population on Earth. India is not far behind though with 1.3 billion people, and they’re estimated to take over the 1 place in a few years.
But to this date, China can pride themselves on having the largest population in the world!
3. THE SUNRISE IN PARTS OF CHINA CAN BE AS LATE AS 10 AM
Despite being a wide and large country, China only has one time zone – Standard Chinese time. This means that in the West of China, the sunrise can be as late as 10 AM!
This means that when it’s 6 o’clock in the nation’s capital, it’s 6 o’clock almost 3,000 miles further west, in Kashgar.
4. THE ELDERLY RIGHTS LAW
If you have parents that are over 60 years old, it’s illegal to not visit them regularly. This is definitely one of the most interesting China facts, since, in many other countries, the elders are being forgotten or put into rest-homes.
5. CHINA HAS THE WORLD’S LARGEST ECONOMY
In 2014, experts claimed that the Chinese economy has become the largest economy in the world. It’s the biggest exporter and is considered the largest economy in the world when it comes to purchasing power parity.
However, in nominal GDP, it’s the second largest economy.
6. THE CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION LASTS FOR 15 DAYS
First of all, the New Year in China and the European or American New Year is not being celebrated on the same date. The first day of the year falls on the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so it differs from year to year.
Secondly, this celebration is ongoing for 15 days instead of just 1 that westerners celebrate the new year.
Definitely one of the many interesting facts about China!
7. FORTUNE COOKIES ARE NOT A TRADITIONAL CHINESE CUSTOM
Did you know that fortune cookies actually were invented in San Fransisco? Today more than 3 billion fortune cookies are made each year, but it’s not a traditional Chinese custom, even if many westerners think otherwise.
8. CHINA HAS THE WORLD’S LARGEST STANDING ARMY
Did you think that the United States has the largest army in the world? Guess again. The mighty superpower country China has 2,183,000 personnel they can send to war if they have to.
That’s almost 1 million more than what the U.S Army has in active duty.
9. IN 2020, IT’S ESTIMATED TO BE 30-40 MILLION MORE CHINESE MEN THAN WOMEN
This is a big problem that China is facing due to the one-child policy that has been standard for the last decades. Since they only can have one child per family, it has led to the fact that a lot of parents want a son and not a daughter.
China is still very traditional as a country, and because of parents only wanting a son, it has led to the problem that about 30-40 million men can’t find a Chinese wife to marry because they’re already taken.
10. CHINA’S RAILWAY LINES ARE SO EXTENSIVE AND LONG THAT THEY COULD LOOP AROUND EARTH TWICE
China is the 4th largest country by area in the world, but the railways are widely expanded throughout the country. In fact, the Chinese railway is so extensive that it could loop around the Earth, not once, but TWICE!
