#101 What can you do in at night in China? 中国的夜生活是怎么样的?

大家好!欢迎在新的一年回来MaoMi Chinese!

从2023年1月8日开始,中国会渐渐开放,去中国旅游也会越来越方便。当我们去一个新的地方旅游的时候,我们都很想体验一下当地的夜生活。那么,中国人的夜生活是怎么样的呢?今天我们来聊一聊吧。

其实,在中国的古代,人们几乎没有夜生活。因为在古代,人们没有电灯,只能点蜡烛,但是古代的蜡烛很暗,一点儿也不亮,所以人们在夜晚只能休息和睡觉。因为在中国的古代,大多数人都是农民,人们也需要早睡早起,第二天才能在农田里干活儿。除此以外,中国古代有宵禁。宵禁,意思是人们禁止在夜晚出去,也就是不能在夜晚出门。到了唐朝的晚期,宵禁不那么严格了,中国人才开始有了夜生活。到了宋朝,宵禁一点儿也不严格了,一些城市和小镇有了一些夜市,也就是夜晚的市场。

从那以后,中国人的夜生活越来越精彩。因为中国人太喜欢美食了,所以对于很多人来说,夜宵是非常重要的。夜宵,有些地方也叫宵夜,意思是晚饭以后的那一顿饭。在中国,很多饭馆会开到半夜,因为来吃夜宵的人非常多。那么人们夜宵吃什么呢?每一个地方都不一样,人们有很多选择。比如,在东北,烧烤非常受欢迎,人们一到夜晚就出去吃烧烤。在四川和重庆,人们夜宵也会吃火锅。有些地方,人们还会吃面条,米饭,海鲜,等等。总之,没有你想不到的。

人们一般去哪儿吃夜宵呢?人们可以去饭馆,也有很多人喜欢去夜市。现在,中文里的夜市,主要是吃东西的夜市。几乎每一个城市或者小镇都有夜市。夜市里有很多小吃摊,有各种各样的食物。小吃摊的食物常常比饭馆的食物便宜,所以在中国,夜市非常受欢迎,每天夜晚,夜市都很热闹。如果你在夜晚去夜市走一走,你会看到人们三五成群,和他们的朋友或者家人一起,开心地吃东西。

除了去夜市吃夜宵,现在也有很多年轻人喜欢去酒吧喝酒,跳舞。这几年,中国的一些城市里有了一些二十四小时的书店,所以也有一些人喜欢在夜晚去书店看书,因为夜晚的书店里人很少,更安静。人们也喜欢在夜晚做运动。如果你路过一些免费的篮球场,你一定会看到很多孩子或者年轻人在打篮球。这个时候,你还可以坐下来,好好看一场篮球比赛呢。如果你在夜晚去公园,你也很可能会看到很多中年人和老年人在做运动,他们最喜欢的运动应该是跳广场舞。他们会播放一些音乐,然后大家跟着音乐一起跳舞,非常有趣。

你的夜生活是怎么样的呢?欢迎和我们分享哦!

 

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese in the new year!

Starting from January 8, 2023, China will gradually open up, and traveling to China will become more and more convenient. When we travel to a new place, we all want to have a taste on the local nightlife. What is the Chinese nightlife like? Today let’s talk about the nightlife in China.

In fact, in ancient China, people had almost no nightlife. Because in ancient times, people had no electric lights and could only light candles, but the ancient candles were very dark and not bright at all, so people could only rest and sleep at night. Because in ancient China, most people were farmers, and people also needed to go to bed early and get up early to work in the farmland the next day. In addition, there was a curfew in ancient China. Curfew means that people were forbidden to go out at night, which means that they could not go out at night. In the late Tang Dynasty, the curfew was not so strict, and the Chinese people began to have nightlife. In the Song Dynasty, the curfew was not strict at all, and some cities and small towns had some night markets, which means markets open at nights.

Since then, Chinese nightlife has become more and more exciting. Because Chinese people like food so much, for many people, second dinner is very important. 夜宵, is also called 宵夜 in some places, means the meal after dinner. In China, many restaurants stay open until midnight, because there are many people who come for second dinner. So what do people eat for second dinner? Every place is different, and people have many choices. For example, in the Northeast, barbecue is very popular, and people go out to eat barbecue food at night. In Sichuan and Chongqing, people also eat hot pot for second dinner. In some places, people also eat noodles, rice, seafood, etc. In short, there is nothing you can't think of.

Where do people usually go for second dinner? People can go to restaurants, and many people like to go to night markets. Now, the night market in Chinese is mainly a place for eating. Almost every city or small town has a night market. There are many food stalls in the night market with a variety of food. Food from food stalls is often cheaper than food from restaurants. Therefore, in China night markets are very popular and very lively every night. If you go to a night market at night, you will see a lot of people in groups, with their friends or family, eating happily.

In addition to going to night markets for second dinner, many young people now also like to go to bars to drink and dance. In recent years, some cities in China have opened 24-hour bookstores, so some people like to go to bookstores to read books at night, because there are fewer people in bookstores at night and it is quieter. People also like to do sports at night. If you pass by some free basketball courts, you will definitely see many children or young people playing basketball. At this time, you can sit down and watch a basketball game. If you go to the park at night, you are likely to see many middle-aged and elderly people doing sports, and their favorite sport should be square dancing. They would play some music and then everyone would dance to it, which was a lot of fun.

What is your nightlife like? Feel free to share with us!
