Chinese Culture Exploration Notebook
Have you ever visited a Chinese temple, clan association, tourist site or admire a Chinese antique but cannot quite figure out the age or date of objects you see?
Well, that is because Chinese years are expressed through lunar or political calendars and months expressed in poetic references.
Since 99.995% of visitors cannot recall the information, Chinatownology has come up with just what you need for an insightful cultural exploration; the Chinese Culture Exploration Notebook.
What's in the notebook?
In this notebook, there are reference tables of:
Important Chinese festivals
Chinese dynasties (general and detailed lists)
Reign periods of Ming and Qing emperors
Chinese Lunar calendar
Chinese Political calendars (1862 - 1911)
Chinese references to months
Chinese references to numbers
How to use it?
The information is presented in both Chinese and English for your easy reference. As an example, in the political calendar section, if you check the year 1867, you will find that it refers to 6th year of Emperor Tong Zhi’s reign. If you check 1867 in the Chinese lunar calendar, it tells you that was the year of “ding mao” popularly referred to as the year of the rabbit.
Behind these important references are about 45 pages (90 sides) of paper for you to record information from your exploration. Bring this notebook with you on your next tour or visit to museums, temples or antique shopping.
This is a must have for anyone interested in Chinese cultural exploration.
