Two bitches in the Wangfujing area
By ALQUASIR | 3/4/2010 11:06:36 AM

Please beware of the two bitches operating in the Wangfujing area. One of them is said to look after children from 3 to 7 years old and have a low salary and named, supposedly, Lee.

Those two bitches took me to a tea room and after an hour presented me with a bill for 11,120 RMB.

Need to put bitches like these to the wall and shoot on the spot.

beware the English "student"

Americans and other English-speaking westerners traveling in China are often asked if they would assist a young Chinese person in practicing their English. These are usually college-aged people, or at least appear to be, and more often than not, they are female. Many travelers are more than willing to help, hoping perhaps to be able to move beyond the usual tour guide conversations, etc. A warning, however. Many young people in Beijing who approach westerners have made arrangements with local businesses to try and steer foreigners to their establishments.

These young people work for commissions and, hence, their seeming sincerity may have more to do with capitalist desires (wink) than with an interest in English (or you, middle aged male, who suddenly feels attractive in light of the undue attention being paid to you by an attractive young Chinese woman with an intriguing accent ;-). Some of the places that they will take you - for example, a traditional Chinese tea house or even a bar - will hike their prices accordingly, resulting in anything but a genuine Chinese "experience." If you are not careful, you will find yourself very embarrassed and considerably poorer as you are faced with paying a bill far in excess of the "Chinese price" and being unable to effectively challenge the circumstance.

The best advice is to respectfully decline anyone who approaches you and requests to practice English (or any other language), to discuss your country's culture, etc. Granted, you may end up missing out on a genuine opportunity for cultural enrichment, but that's better than ending up many hundreds of dollars or euros or pounds short.

Silk Road
By ALLANH | 9/13/2008 8:20:39 AM

I'm not a shopper, but I loved the silk road, virtually all a tourist would want. The shopkeepers are very pushy to sell you anything. Don't fall for this. I bought some brand name gear.
If I went back to Beijing, my time would now be spent shopping, with some time visiting places our tour didn't show us. Wangfujing St is very good as with some of the side streets for a tourist to do some shopping.

place to stay in Beijing
By ALLANH | 9/11/2008 7:03:23 AM

The Tian Rui Hotel is about a 3star hotel in South Australia. It is adequate for the tourist. Cleaning is OK, Meals are mostly chinese orientated.
The Hotel is within walking distance to all tourists. Wangfujing St, Tianemen Square, Silk Road and lots of other places. This Hotel has to be one of the best locations to stay at.
