Today’s Eating in China post comes from the dreamy Yunnan Province. We know how much the Chinese love their rice, but how about some special coloured rice with sugar added to it? Throw in a walk to some gorgeous waterfalls called Jiulong, near Luoping in the Yunnan Province and you’re sorted. Here’s a bit about Chinese sweet coloured rice.
Where can you buy Chinese sweet coloured rice?
Yunnan Province is one part of China that this exists in. Getting there has many options – you can take an overland train or book a flight. If you’re flying in please do not forget to compare flights as China is a market with a lot more airlines than you’d expect.
As for the sweet Coloured rice, if you see it, buy it and try it as it may be a long time before you find the same type of food again. I tried it the very first time I seen it, that was only a few weeks ago while visiting the Jiulong Waterfalls near Luoping in China’s Yunnan Province.
Hot, sugary and sticky as well as being colourful! Chinese rice with a difference.
How much does Chinese sweet coloured rice cost?
Now come on, this is China so everything is cheap. It won’t be more than 5RMB (50 pence) for a pack of it. It is well recommended for you to try this magnificent sweet coloured rice in China.
What does Chinese sweet coloured rice taste like?
It’s delicious and really sweet. It will surprise you – you will munch and scoff it down really quickly. Despite not having much flavour, the sugar really is noticeable and it goes down a treat. It comes in multicolours – purple, pink, yellow, blue and white.
Overall what about travelling in China, what’s it like?
This is the world’s most populated country and it is a gem of a place to travel around. All you need is a backpack, a guidebook and a sense of wonder! It’s a great place for backpacking and getting away from the crowds.
Make sure you get China on your itinerary and try the fantastic sugary sweet rice when you hit up the dreamy Yunnan Province. It has to be tried.
