The uniqueness of sights and sounds in China might be construed as weird, surprising or hilarious especially to first-time visitors.
Encountering a sea of humanity at a railway station or a public pool is not for those who want space, and peace and quiet.
The display of whole animals at markets and supermarkets, such as sharks and crocodiles, or even just a crocodile paw, might cause the faint-hearted to make a run for an exit.
A meal of dog-meat? No thanks!
But what is truly delicious and safe for eating might deter you when the English translation of the dish sounds suspicious. See the gallery for the unique and the weird in China.
