Chinese idioms about success

By Keats Student Anna

Chengyu, four character Chinese idioms, each have a rich history behind them that make them fascinating to learn about. Here are three Chinese idioms that all talk about success. These idioms are very much Chinese, and their back stories reflect their historic nature; however each of these easily corresponds to common English sayings such as “instant success,” “blessing in disguise,” and to “just know it in your heart.” Horse to Success 马到成功 (mǎ dào chéng gōng) View All >

Da Guan Park

By Keats Student Anna

Da Guan Park (大观公园) is a perfect place to spend a carefree afternoon or even an entire day out of doors. This lovely lakeside park is a shining example of the natural beauty of Kunming. It is wonderful that the Spring city has so many green places inside it such as this pretty recreational area. It is very easy to get to this park. Located in the heart of Kunming, Da Guan Park is easy to access by bus. A taxi ride would be even faster and not very expensive since it is within city limits. View All >
