Multibyte languages - Chinese - double bytes or more bytes in each character

I'm working on a multi-byte language project. I know Chinese is a
multibyte language, but not sure if that means each Chinese character
has two bytes or more than one byte but varies (ie. Variable number of
bytes, can be two, three or more bytes)?


Can someone who knows this stuff confirm?
