I have visited China 8 times proper, plus 5 layovers.  Chinese cuisine in general is my favorite, especially Cantonese, especially Singaporean-style Chinese.   Unfortunately, my traveling experiences in China itself have been rather disappointing.

  1. Hong Kong (1997) [pre-GMTD]
  2. Shanghai (2008) [pre-GMTD]
  3. Beijing (2009): World Medical Conference [pre-GMTD]
  4. Hong Kong (2011): Frontiers in Medical and Health Sciences Education Conference
  5. Hong Kong (2012): AUSOM Class of 2012 Graduation Trip
  6. Wuhan (2013): 45th Conference of the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health
  7. Beijing (2016): 2nd International Symposium on Tobacco Control & Law (WHO mission)
  8. Shanghai (2019): 3rd Meeting on Health Professional Education Reforms in Transition Economy Countries (WHO mission)

“CHN” is the country’s 3-letter abbreviation within the United Nations system.

These commercial eating establishments in CHN, as featured on GMTD, are arranged geographically, then listed alphabetically.  Some might no longer be in operation.

Venues in other countries can be accessed via the COUNTRIES index.
