Chinese stereotypes of Europe

Bulgaria’s ‘milk-induced longevity’ is apparently a thing.

The map below was created by Foreign Policy who plotted “the most common Chinese-language Baidu query for each European nation” to get an insight into what the people of the middle kingdom think about Europe. Baidu is China’s largest search engine and it’s auto-complete function seems to work a lot like Google’s.

While are fair proportion of these are funny, I’m not sure as Europeans we should be laughing. I imagine a similar map of European stereotypes of Asian countries would not make for comforting viewing.
