Culture Background

When you have a trip or tour a new place, you may come across an unknown or unclear address and you will have to ask the way. When someone is giving you directions in Chinese, watch out the Chinese word “wǎng” (to). The next word following “wǎng” usually indicates the important direction information in Chinese.
