Going to other countries for traveling or studying is getting more common every day. While they enjoy seeing the other countries, they mostly do not really enjoy the food there. If you as a foreigner ever organize a trip for someone Chinese, I seriously recommend to make at least one stop in a Chinese restaurant every day.
Foreigners on the other hand are much more into trying the local food and do not mind not going to a western restaurant for a few weeks. For them the goal is more to learn about the local culture and see the best sightseeing spots.
