Chinese cardinal points

Today I’d like to tell you a little anecdote about cardinal points. As you know, cardinal points are the four directions that make a reference system and help us to guide: North, South, East and West

I’ve been really surprised when I discovered that in China there’s a small difference. They consider, not four, but five cardinal points. The fifth is Center.

So, the five Chinese cardinal points are: Bei (North), Nan (South), Dong (East), Xi (West) and Zhong (Center).
