Importing chinese characters

I've got a problem with importing chinese characters into a mysql-table
and have read several mailings but didn't find a solution.

i have a utf-8 text file that contains chinese characters. the table
where i want to import the data using "load data local infile" has
collation utf8_unicode_ci. but after the import is done, the chinese
characters are converted into so strange characters. to show the
chinese symbols in a php-script i use mb_convert_encoding() which shows
me the characters properly, but the problem is that i have to order by
the col that contains the chinese characters, so the chinese characters
mustn't be converted after importing. when i use the form in phpmyadmin
to add data it is possible to store the characters properly. is there a
way to achieve this by using load data local infile?
