If I had 2-3 weeks in China, what would be the absolute must see destinations to better understand the country?
mezokgugcxcv2mo
Usually I enjoy nature a lot, but would like a bit of balance maybe between different stops

The Great Wall and Tibet?
xgnqziybynqjhb2mo
Xiโ€™an - you get the incredible history of the terra-cotta warriors (be sure to visit some of the other mausoleum sites as they are usually empty and fascinating) - plus you see a city managing modernization. The metro is very new, the city has eliminated the use of gas motorbikes to improve the air quality, and the modern part of the city is growing fast. And inside the old city walls, you have an active Muslim quarter.

Bejing and Shanghai are top cities, so probably you will be there anyway.

loucdmeuwvc When I was in Shanghai, I liked to work in Element Fresh. Itโ€™s a quite expansive place, but you can just buy a cup or a put of tea and they leave you alone for the whole day. There is one in Portman (between West Nanjing Road and Jingan) but my favorite is on 6th Floor of Fraser Residence. If you look for a propper coworking space, definitely go to Agora Space / Coderbunker and tell the owner Fred that I sent you ๐Ÿ˜‰ www.agora-space.com/contact

Have anyone here already used Alipay or WeChat pay as a foreigner in China? Any problems/tips? I just created the Alipay TourPass and it seems pretty simple to use. WeChat I couldnโ€™t create though. They asked for a security check, that I would need an existing user to โ€œverify meโ€ as a new user.
cpybotiwywuw24d
jejvitxvvk Very interested in this too. I could add my Revolut card to WeChat at least. Tried it at a Thai 7-11 but that didn't work, maybe in China.
zcfepoqoz23d
I'm going to Shanghai in 2 days. I'll share my experience then :) but probably with Alipay only
gtiejrkzwfqf23d
Nice, I'm thinking of going next year
swmrnyyzmrdw23d
Just PM if you need verification help

Hey!, does anyone know a good vpn service i can use?, or has someone setup their own ?
dpoffvnpjdidoe18d
Check out WhaleBlue SSR - worked great for me while there.

Hello, any tips for staying / working in Shenzhen?
bffztlqle18d
Alipay works great for tourist. I've used it a lot so far! But I notice they will start to charge 5% of each top up from January 3rd. ๐Ÿ˜”
izywhbz17d
Trying again w more specific questions are there any especially good or bad areas for staying in shenzhen? Tips on which mobile provider to get? How do I set up wepay (will be staying for a month). Any good places to meet fellow travelers? Sorry for the barrage of questions, feels like thereโ€™s a lot less info on Shenzhen than the โ€œusualโ€ DN places
Thank you
zziirawnufknag17d
Hi there, Iโ€™d like to know if anybody has Chinese nationality ? Or Chinese contact over here. I have couple of questions
cdrpqmlygwds16d
nldyzijw Sent you a longer message about this but it seemed to disappear, guess I did something that was automatically moderated somehow... oops.

Anyway feel free to DM me, I was able to get Alipay setup while visiting Shanghai for this trip using an international card to fund a "tour pass" that seems to create a virtual prepaid card inside your Alipay account to top up and use.

There was a bit of a trick to getting it working, I funded it with some money from my Canadian debit card and Revolut then at first it didn't work. I reached out to support and they asked me a few questions, confirmed my international number with a One Time Password text and said my account was unlocked now. After that it has worked great, I've paid for everything from streetfood to accommodations using it. Love it! So it could be an alternative for you to Wepay if you can't get that working or until you do.

What month is better to visit China? June, August, or September?
irrbvxwaqvisppj11d
thinking about Xi'an, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong โฌ†๏ธ
ktessjfo11d
buy a good vpn
wpgwujqe11d
that works
usiubnupeceau10d
wqeooylquxrknngz For Shanghai, I would say September because June-August is way too hot and pollution is usually a bit higher
hvjppkanuspv10d
Hey!, would anyone recommend staying 3 months in shenzhen ?, or does it get old really fast ?
jwrkmqvakhbx10d
i really love hardware and want to play with electronics there, but would love to do touristic stuff too if possible
gbfotacduasah10d
zvbbjzqmxwqrf my friend used to work in Shenzhen and he told me that the best thing was to take a ferry boat to HK on weekends ๐Ÿ˜‰
parcirpmtioxyd10d
We were in Beijing late August last year, all the air pollution was in Shanghai. By the time we got to Shanghai in late September, all the pollution was in the north.
Weather was warm, nice in the shade. Mid-Autumn festival didnโ€™t slow anything down.
bdfsxtfpqneehaj10d
Looks like September may be a good time to visit. Thanks

I was native to Guangzhou but now traveling globally. Feel free to DM me questions about Guangzhou or the GD province.
