For hunting lovers, it is also a wise choice to go to Guandong, with the opening of the Taoshan Hunting Ground in Heilongjiang and the Lushuihe Hunting Ground in Jilin to overseas tourists. One can first take a rest in a warm cozy cottage before being led by a professional hunting guide to forests inhabited by black bear, deer, fox, pheasant, and hare. With a good luck and a crack shot one can surely bring back with him a stuffed animal made of the
quarry by a skillful expert, to fill up his private museum.|
It is in the vast snow - covered farmland and mountain villages in Guandong that tourists hope to meet the Chinese Santa Claus and rediscover the dream of childhood. A tour
in winter coincides with several Chinese festivals, such as the "Miner New Year", Spring Festival, and Lantern Festival. As a tradition, during the Miner New Year, which falls on December 23 of the Lunar Calendar, local farmers will clean their rooms, and slaughter pigs and sheep to offer to the Kitchen God in hope that he returns to Heaven happily. The pious grandmothers will make maltose as a sacrificial offering to the Kitchen God in return for good blessings. Actually, it is usually the grandchildren who eat the maltose .
