Q: Chinese and alcohol tolerance

Is it me or Chinese people have, in general, low tolerance to alcohol? They drink a lot, but to the point of being sick. Especially women, who get drunk on just a few glasses.

When I go out drinking, Chinese often impressed by my lvl of tolerance and they say it's a good thing. They also ask me how they can level up their drinking skillz.

How can that be?

It depend where you are in China. In general the further South you go the less they drink. If you go to Inner Mongolia or the Northeast I think you will find plenty of people that can drink you under the table.

i guess you are having the good quality of alcohol every day branded one i think . this depends upon your physique and mental status as well. chinese drinks alot of bears having 4 or 5 % alcohol and they are very cheap to buy it. depends on the quality you have got this resistence to intoxication.

its better for you to reduce it before cause some damage to your liver and brain. alcohol readily kill brain cell which are old enough to die and liver is extremely affected with it. so if you want to have a healthy life so reduce smoking and alcohol... better for you...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
