The school canteen is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Friday, providing the school with traditional, family-style Chinese meals (dine-in or take-away). For our all-inclusive students and volunteers, all meals at the canteen are included and tuition-only students are charged 11 RMB (approximately $1.8 USD) per meal.
These meals typically consist of soup or porridge, rice, and a shifting variety of meat, vegetable, egg, and tofu dishes. The canteen serves lunch at noon and dinner at 6pm.
Students are responsible for their own breakfast as well as all meals on weekends. The town of Yangshuo provides students with many nearby restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, and street-food at all times of the day. Just outside of Omeida’s campus, there is a very wide variety of traditional Chinese food that is all served at a very affordable cost.
Just a 15 minute walk away from Omeida is also the famous “West Street” which will satisfy just about every foreign appetite. West Street has a very high concentration of western-style restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, so if you’re looking for a burger, pizza, pasta, steak, fries, a fresh cup of coffee, or just about anything else you can think of, it’s probably going to be somewhere on West Street.
