Every country has some things that cannot perhaps be found in any other. But in some countries, these things turn out to be so bizarre that one cannot avoid having a good time knowing them. So here is a list of 14 most bizarre things you will get to see only in China:
1. Live crabs sold in vending machines
We know that hotels in many countries have live kitchens where they cook living animals in front of their customers, but selling live crabs in vending machines is a concept unique to China!
2. Ghost marriages
China has people who steal corpses and sell to the families of those who died young and unmarried. These families then arrange ghost marriages, that is marriage after death.
3. Whole sharks and crocodiles for sale at Walmart
Walmart is a big chain with stores in a number of countries but it sells whole sharks and crocs only in China.
Wondering whether the Chinese cook them in one piece, exactly the way they sell and buy them is quite amusing!
4. Traffic jam stand-ins
If you are stuck in a traffic jam in China, you can call traffic jam stand-ins. The service will send two people to you. One will take care of your car and the other one will take you away on a motorbike. That is perhaps because traffic jams in China are much more horrible than you can imagine.
5. Geese replace police dogs
In some parts of China, police use geese instead of dogs. According to them, geese have exceptional vision and aggressive nature.
6. Offices buildings have net pinned around them to prevent employee suicides
These seem to be just precautionary measures though!
7. Cockroach farming
This is a booming business one can make a lot of money from in China. Cockroaches are bred for use in Chinese medicines.
