So Ive decided to make another China General thread so that I could keep the topic on going.
Like always though feel free to discuss about things to do in China, such as like:
>Traveling
>Living in China
>Shops/Places
>Hotels Check-in
>Foods/Liesures
>Best Landscapes\Tours

And also please take the time to check out the old thread as well while it's still active on the board right here. >>1398366

Traveling in Korea at the moment. Got a nasty burst blister on my toe from all the walking. Going to Beijing on Friday - will the water possibly infect my foot when I shower? Should I try to avoid getting it wet other than rinsing it with two water? I'm willing to tolerate the abuse my feet are taking for the rest of the trip - but I don't want to be limping or unable to walk very far because of it.

How far will £3000/$4000 get me for 2 and a half months in china?

I want to spend each week in a different city, and i don't like shared hostel rooms so im looking at the cheap hotels that take foreigners, 7 days inn and such.

Do i need more?
>>
>>1413062
Airbnb is also a good option.
$4000 should be a good amount to eat, party, and find places to sleep with. Beijing, Shanghai, and other tier one cities will be way more expensive than Xi'an, Chengdu, Qingdao.

Will you by buying gifts or just traveling?

>white
Yes, being White in China makes it very easy to pick up a girl in or out of a club. Here are some classic, but still valid ways to pick up girls

>Be around a university
>Ask a student for directions to a coffee shop or Restaurant.
>Then ask that student if they would like to join you

>Go to a well tourist area
>Request for a personal female tour guide
>110% of these girls are DTF a white guy

Don't be offended if they laugh. They will laugh if you speak to them at first since they don't expect it. They are not laughing at you. Say simple phrases in Chinese and they will also make them laugh. Laugh them all the way into the bed.
>>
>>1413065
Travel, maybe take a few ladies out for lunch if you know what i mean.

I know what you mean but I don't think you know what you mean, haha :)

Ya, but it's still a lot pretty expensive though.

Has anyone ever gone to Hong Kong/Macau/Guangzhou/Shenzhen/Zhuhai? I'm sure that many here have been over to just Hong Kong, but I'm only curious about the region more broadly. How much time would be needed to get something out of it?
>>
>>1413141
So, how much is it though?
>>
>>1413154
What, the whole costs of the trip? Depending on your price ranges of course. It's gotta be worth the money.
>>
>>1413141
You'll need at least a week desu and even that is no where near enough. I spent 6 days in HK, two of which I spent going across the border to Shenzhen and it was amazing but you need way more time to get your moneys worth. Accommodation is cheap in China if you know where to look and transport is cheap as well. If hong kong wasn't as expensive as Australia in terms of food etc I probably would have spent more time there.
>>
So is it even possible to drive a car and then get like a ferry over to hainan from Guangzhou?
>>
How do i go to Tibet?

I am trying to google it but its all just some political bullshit stuff s that's on there.

You can fly over to Lhasa airport, right? And then you'll certainly arrive there that's for sure now.
>>
>>1413763
Oh nice, I didn't even know that a round-trip flight like this would be that cheap now. What site did you happened to look it up on though?

>>1413762
True, plus I've heard that there's filariasis and a few other diseases that's been discovered down there just recently ago.

I was initially skeptical, but ended up loving Beijing. The Biblioteca Vasconcelos is cool as fuck. If you're there on a Saturday, then go to the punk flea market on the adjacent street. Also try the tarantula venom drink at the Tao Chi Bar for an interesting sensation. The bar itself is dope as hell too.

How clean are the roads over in China there?

Favourite things to do in Shenzhen? Favourite neighborhoods/places to walk around in?

Also, is it really only possible to get tourist visas with a duration of stay of 30 days? I really want a 90-day visa, I see them mentioned occasionally, but whenever I go to a visa service site, the only options are single and double entry with 30 days duration of stay

>So is it even possible to drive a car and then get like a ferry over to hainan from Guangzhou?
Yes, that's fairly easy to do. There are ferries that carry cars (and even trains) over from the mainland.
Hiring a car is probably the harder part, I have no idea if that's even possible on an international license.

>>1415049
Some of that is some kind of bot that comes in and spams threads. I'm not sure but I think it posts random pics from the archive or something.

They exist but they're hard to get. I used to get 1 year/90day visas but they cost a bit.
If you're in the USA, I believe the LA and SanFran consulates can do them more easily than other places.
>>
>>1415444
Damn, but thanks for letting me know. I'm from Denmark, so if any fellow Dane has some experience please let me know!
>>
>>1415504
In theory, if you go to the consulate with a 90 day itinerary, you should get a 90day visa. In practice, they don't like giving them out. It wouldn't hurt to try though, Chinese consulates generally won't take your money and documents unless they're satisfied that they don't have a reason to reject it. Since they're mostly just ticking boxes, it's easy to see if you have all the things you're supposed to have and if you do, they'll take your stuff and issue a visa.

You can get multiple entry visas, go to Macao, HK or Taiwan it resets and you get another 30 days.

I'm traveling down to Hangzhou in just a month from today, anybody here got any advises for me before I go?
>>
>>1415639
Hmm I might try. But I'm going to Kenya, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia and will return only a couple of months before applying for the Chinese visa, so I'm not sure if they will let me get a 3-month visa. Some people on the internet make it sound like a big deal having gone to countries like these.

However, most of the visa service agencies have these drop-down menus where you can choose the kind of tourist visa you want to apply for, and double entry 2 x 30 days is the maximum in all of them.

>>1415657
It's just super annoying to have to go all the way down to Hong Kong every time 30 days have gone by. Double-entry is the max amount that seems to be available in my country. Like I see 3-month duration of stay visas mentioned occasionally when trawling the internet for info, but there's never really any info that can help me determine if it's still a thing
>>
>>1415707
>Yeah, plus it's pretty much one of the best tasting Chinese hotsauce spices ever, don't ya think?
Well they say that laogan ma is the hottest mama in China.
Richest too.

That one is the 'meat' version, I sort of like it more but the vegetarian one (green stripe) goes with more dishes.

>>1415715
>But wouldn't you also have to go through the Chinese Embassy in order to do that'?
You mean Consulate, Embassies are for diplomatic stuff.
Yes, visas need to be gotten through consulates, or through agents who go through consulates for you. Travel agents are generally less hassle because they're often doing whole parcels of group bookings and it's easy for them to slip a passport into a stack and add your name to an itinerary before cancelling it later, if they even need to bother doing that much.

>>1415745
>I'm traveling down to Hangzhou in just a month from today, anybody here got any advises for me before I go?
Take a walk through old town in the afternoon and end it in the SE corner where there's a street of food stalls, get a beggar's chicken and pineapple rice for dinner, it's enough food for 2-3 people but you don't really need to finish it and it's not expensive anyway so you won't waste much money.

The lake is best in the morning when it's foggy and you can watch the fog burn off and the lake come into view. It's also nice to walk around at night too I guess.
>>
>>1415895
>only a couple of months before applying for the Chinese visa
Plenty of time, it only takes a few days and you can pay for rush service if you really need to. It can be a big deal if you're trying to do something non-standard like cross at a land border and backpack around without a fixed itinerary, it's still doable though but you need to fake the right stuff, which is easy but a PITA. ctrip for non-paid hotel bookings that you cancel later, some fake flights from airline booking screens one click before you pay, things like that. Then get a lonely planet and write down your 90 day itinerary (don't forget that you can spend several nights on trains between cities, not all at once but here and there). If you do all that, in theory, they should give you a 90 day visa. In theory. If they're not going to, they'll probably not take your money in the first place.

The visa agencies are faking everything for you already, so they mostly only have 30 day stuff sorted out so that's all they do.
You don't have to go all the way to HK, there is also Taiwan (from Xiamen) or Mongolia (from Hohhot, more or less), Vietnam (needs a visa so not really worth it, easy to get though), Laos (from Kunming but it's a two day round-trip to the border at least) and you can always fly to wherever. Mongolia isn't visa-free for everyone so you need to check but you can get visas in Hohhot and Er Lian, the Chinese border town.

I lived with 60 day stay for a year or so, not as bad as 30 but you can manage it.
>>
>>1415905
First of all, thanks a lot, your info is very helpful.

I should have been more clear about the African countries. I wasn't so much worried about the time frame, but rather worried about getting my visa denied because I've travelled to these countries. I've seen various forum posts where people make it sound like visiting Arab or North African countries can mean a rejected visa.

If I try for the 90-day visa, should I just make all the bookings before even starting the visa process, so that I will be able to provide it when making the first contact with the Visa Center? And then they'll take a look and tell me whether I can start the application or not, based on whether they think I will get the visa? Just trying to understand the process more clearly. I am actually planning to eventually leave China to Kyrgyzstan from Xinjiang, but it seems that it's no problem once you have the visa.

In my country you apply at those Visa Service Centres, not at the consulate or embassy, I'm not sure if that makes any difference, btw.

I never thought about Mongolia as an option, so thanks for that. It seems that I will need a visa, maybe I should consider spending 7-10 days there. Is it possible to do anything worthwhile for 7-10 days in Mongolia on a budget? I'm already going to be spending a lot as I'm going to Central Asia afterwards, but I could probably cover the things I want to see in the South for 30 days and then Mongolia is neatly located for going to Shaanxi, Gansu and Xinjiang.

Well technically though different countries have different types of visas, it mostly just depends on which country visa that you're applying for to travel pretty much.
>>
>>1415921
>I've seen various forum posts where people make it sound like visiting Arab or North African countries can mean a rejected visa.
Shouldn't be a problem for a Chinese visa. Not unless you look like an obvious journalist or something.

>If I try for the 90-day visa, should I just make all the bookings before even starting the visa process
You need the bookings (or something that looks like bookings) to get the visa, so I think that one answers itself.
The Visa Service Centres do the same thing as the consulate, they're just to separate the hordes of tourists from people needing other shit.

Mongolia is pretty cheap but it does take a little time to get around. From the Chinese border to UB is an overnight train, then you'd spend a day or two in UB before finding some trips to the deserts or mountains or something.
>>
>>1416361
Thanks again. With regards to the bookings, it just seems a bit weird that they will expect you to book hotels for 3 months and flight tickets, when you're not even sure if they will give you a visa. I'd just hate to figure out all of those bookings and then go to the Visa Center and get rejected immediately for some stupid reason. I know I can cancel the bookings, but still.

This is going to be an autistic af question but here it goes:

I'm going to Beijing Institute of Technology in July for a summer programme. I'm wondering how ok it is if i want to go out partying one or two days and also, if everyone's been to one of these programs or went to BIT, how's life on campus and in the dorms? Is it anything like in the west?
>>
>>1416592
They would include just as much clubs a lot like here in the west.
>>
>>1416455
>How far is A from B
Tried looking at a map?
I think even google would probably answer that directly.

>>1416592
I've done a holiday program in another university in China, we went out a few times.
Most likely, your nights will be your own, maybe some of the day time too. I'd expect that some weekends might have tourist day-trips arranged but probably not all of them.

Should be easy to go out a few times.
You probably won't be in local student dorms, you're probably in foreign student dorms. More guards checking IDs but also larger and better facilities.

There might be a foreign students bar on the campus, if not then there'll be one near-by. There basically always is.

Just look around for other foreign students that are there for the long haul and ask them how the social life is, they should hook you up.

Not really.

It’s becoming a lot less common to see white guys/other foreigners with chink girls in the main cities now. Good looking white guys complaining about being alone now is becoming more common. It’s why the majority of whites you see in a relationship now are with ugly or fat girls, like C-Milk the YT blogger.

so in terms of cities i have a few options for studying abroad in china for a year:
shanghai
beijing
dalian
hangzhou
nanjing
chengdu

which would you guys recommend? chengdu and nanjing seem the most interesting to me but idk, i've never been to china. i want to do something different relative to my chinese language studies peers and push myself as far out of my comfort zone as possible, so that seems to rule out shanghai and beijing. dalian and hangzhou seem incredibly boring from what i've read and seen. chengdu seems dope because it's so far inland and sichuan shares borders with other intriguing places like chongqing, tibet/qinghai, and yunnan, sichuan cuisine is fucking mad fire, is #pandatown, and also seems to have lots of cool "natural" appeal outside of the major city. i also like the seemingly grimy and intense chineseness of nanjing and its proximity to suzhou and shanghai, and also the fact that nanjingers speak a more standard variety of mandarin is a plus.

any tips/pointers from more seasoned chinaboos?

The mandarin in Chengdu is close enough to standard, there's an accent but it's not too bad.
It is a very popular city with expats and it's quite compact and flat so bicycling around it is super easy.

That said, Nanjing is nicer. It's not as logically laid out but it's comfy, green and clean. It has some foreign run restaurants and pubs for when you want western food or to hang out with English speakers (Blue Sky Pub) and it has some very cool tourist sites (and an impressive but not cool one, Rape of Nanjing memorial).

Just don't pick up a Chinese girl and then a second from climax tell her that it's the rape of nanjing again.

They are quite serious, she will be thinking of marriage. Look for signs of her being crazy.
>>
>>1418517

According to SerpentZA and Laowhy dating a chinese woman is serious business - they apparently have marriage on their mind at a very early time in the relationship when westerners are usually in the "getting to know eachother" phase.

also if you breakup with any chinese woman be prepared for a fucked up affair since they apparently go crazy with the mindset that you were wasting their time and now they have even less time to get married and pop out children

its far better to date HK / taiwanese imo and thats all I have experience for anyways so I'm only speaking of the perspective of famous chinese vloggers and not my own experiences.

Staff are really helpful at subway stations and if lost or confused a good samaritan might help you out.

Also the ticket machine and card top ups have an English option iirc. I was given a travel card by a chinese friend and when I'm low I just go to the window hand the guy the card and money and they get what I'm after.

The beijing subway is really clean and efficient stations and announcements are in English. It's really easy with the line map.

The indifferent or rude Chinese stereotype seems to be a bit of a meme at least in Beijing. The young people especially seem well mannered.

I think being a clueless looking westerner really means they cut you some slack. If I looked Chinese the situation might be different.

You do get some rough migrant worker types but they are just a bit loud and spit a lot.

So far my worst chinese encounters have been the country bumpkin tour groups who swarm historic sites on the weekend and can be loud and pushy.

Subway tickets aren't this expensive I don't think so.

Does Shanghai have subway? Otherwise you can’t say it’s urban.

I wonder if Shanghai kids are more fashionable than those in other rural cities. Are Shanghai girls cute? Can you enjoy cool urbanite life there?

hey fellas got two (2) 问题s

2.) what is the most hardcore city in china
>>

I'm going to Tibet this summer -

You need a separate Tibet entry permit to get into the area. I imagine you won't be let out of the Lhasa airport otherwise. I'm going with a group of friends and we organized through a tour agency, so once we got our visas they applied for the entry permit for us. However it seems like if you go to a neighboring city like Chengdu, certain hostels will help out with getting a Tibet entry permit while you're there. Not sure how long that process would take though.
>>
>>1419321
Chongqing may be the most hardcode city in China.
I haven't lived there, just stayed for a week or two.

It is a city that's easy to stay fit in, especially if you cycle (which is easily doable, you just have to like hills).
Awesome views everywhere.

To the people who have been to PEK Terminal 3 in the past few weeks:

Is there like a China Unicom stand or shop over there now?

dunno bout pek, but even in major cities there is a recent legal reform regarding sims. many places you need to go to the regional flagship store to have your passport scanned to get a data plan.

you might think about looking for more reliable info than on 4chins. this could potentially ruin an entire day for you

Shanghai people dress the same as the people in Guangzhou. There is a streetwear trend going on there. Nightlife is a blast. If you go on travel forums on Shanghai there are club promoters who are desperate enough to have foreigners in bars they'll give free entry and drinks just for you to show up. Get a Wechat if you'll do that, not for only clubs, but for girls
>>
>>1419863
22-25HKD($3.5) for 900ml of milk, you can get two small glass bottle I think 15HKD for 400ml, it tastes better.

I will be in China next week to give you a price, but I don't see it varying much in price, and if it is cheaper I would think the quality will be worse and/or poisonous.

Is it really hard to learn some of the words in Chinese or is it pretty simple actually?

>>1420106
Define
>some words

The basics like hi/thanks/beer/2/see ya are very simple.
Knowing just a few characters eg. exit/entrance and the names of places I was going to proved to be incredibly useful.
Eg. it just makes it easy to find the right minibus, and not having to always hail taxis.

>>

>>1420106
learning conversational skills and the many meanings/uses of words is challenging, but the process of memorizing a character is p fucking simple. i'd say to get at least some elementary & survival vocab down via youtube or chinesepod.

tbqh I think a lot of people really talk up the difficulty of learning chinese, don't be intimidated. practice writing and speaking survival vocab for like 20 minutes a day and you should be fine

He might have been after them but there's also a thing where if you injure someone, it's sort of worth killing them to pay a wrongful death suit instead of their medical costs forever.

>How does the police in China treats foreigners I wonder? Will they be treating me pretty differently compared to local citizens?
If you're not a dick then you'll usually get the benefit of the doubt in minor things. Then again, if there aren't bodies then police are encouraged to resolve situations at the lowest level possible so apologies and token compensation are encouraged by police so you could literally, say, get into a fight and smash someone's phone and be out of the station a few bucks poorer in the same day. It goes double for tourist visas since what cop wants the hassle of extradition/deportation paperwork for two arseholes getting into a fight?
