The soggy dogs and burgers aren't so bad after a Jah bar jam, but pale in comparison to the heavenly delights under Golden Arches.
Imagine if the powers at be conceded to allow "folding bikes" on the metro as in the States. I cannot see the logic in having such tiny wheels unless you are commuting via subway/ferry/bus. But it is funny to see some guy decked out in the latest cycling gear from Decathalon on a mini folding bike blazing past backwards coat wearing scooter guy.
All in all, I share the rage of the aforementioned Mr. Gao and hope that we see bike parking at all terminals. Until then, I'll make the 5.5km haul to the office on my three-speed ladies bike and dodge rogue cars and taxis in the bus lane.
really want to go, it was a great time last year. i'm sitting here in shanghai expo land working in VIP for USA pav. *smirks*
have a blast and remember that mosh pits need skanking, so go out and show the locals how to get down!
Fuck vegetarianism, eat humans.
The state environmental protection agency in china (SEPA) has no teeth, its like trying to dispatch the Tiger Scouts on the Mafia. They are bribed or intimidated an unable to enforce meager environmental regulations in China.
We can live a sustainable lifestyle but it would take an incredibly strong-armed gov. to enforce tight regulations. The fossil fuel industry has such a stranglehold on the American government that it makes it hard to fathom an economy based on renewable energy. I believe that if China wants to retain its position as top exporter and fastest growing economy, then they need to take serious action to reduce GHG emissions and toxic effluent from factories. Sure a "sustainable" economy sounds idealistic, but in the long-term it would be most financially stable.
In addition to the hurdle of challenging conspicuous consumption, the populous lacks an understanding about the basic concepts of ecology and environmental issues. However, they do understand, that the smog and coal dust is making their kids sick.
FYI invisible is a co-director of Chengdoo. and yes controlling surplus population is key, I applaud the CCP for the one child policy, lets hope India follows suit.
@Invisible —Joe why would you troll people on your own website, that made me laugh out loud.
I've lived in CD for nearly 3 years and work for an environmental NGO here. Sadly there is not enough communication nor a strong sense of community between NGOs. I'd love to help organize an environmental forum or discussion group. Hit me up when you get to CD.
Was playing bass at Jah bar on a Thursday and saw the salsa live in action at Carol's. I hip shuffle forward and back and swing my partner at the right time and everyone thinks I know what I'm doing. suckers! granted I couldn't get away with that in Ecuador...
Hi Chuck I've been told and read from various sources that you can pay for a Laos Visa at the border. Its inexpensive and a fairly painless process. Currently I'm planning the inverse of your trip, starting south in Malaysia and working my way up to Kunming. The concrete jungle of CD is bringing me down. Why don't you leave from Xishuangbana in Yunnan? You can continue south to Laos, and its a pretty neat place to visit, shao cao like you'd never believe and fascinating cultural diversity if you seek out a few days to stomp in the bush. Sadly much of the ecological diversity was decimated during the monoculture planting of rubber trees during the cultural revolution but it is still a good pit stop on your route south.
Looking to take advantage of my multi-entry visa before work really heats up. Flying to kuala lampur on air asia then making my way north. I have traveled all over mainland china and Xinjiang and well versed in South America, however this is my first trip south of Yunnan. Any tips? More keen on nature than old temples and tourist traps.

Monumental improvements from the first months. And voila my recommendations for less staff and cheaper prices seemed to come true. I often get a free side dish from Nori which is a great perk.
Glad to see all the positive reviews after a wave of poorly written Ahem "self-touting" reviews which created a bit controversy in initial months.
