Tattoo and Jewelery

by WizeGurl

Hello Everyone!

We are visiting China in late October.

Would like to if anyone can recommend a safe and sanitary tattoo place with a the tattooist also being a skilled artist.

And a place to look for jewelery, I am looking for a peice of jewelery that will remind me of our trip to China. Real gold is preferred, something that you would give to your mother or wife, a peice of jewelery that will last more than life time.

Thank you

Tatoos are still frown upon in China as a art and when I have been traveling through China the past few years I do not remember seeing a place to get Tatoos. It is very popular in Japan and Thailand though and I have seen shops and stalls everywhere there is tourist.

Errgh.... yes, absolutely. Tattoos are associated with "underworld" at worst and with "low class" at best in every (post)Socialist country, be it China or Poland. Some people do have it, but it's not what the kids are proud of to show their parents.

Otherwise getting traditional Chinese-style jewelry is not a problem. We LOVE these little golden abacus-es. ;-)
If you are better off, the choice is limitless and IMO the design is superb.

By the way: regardless where geographically (we did visit Mainland, Macao, HK, Taiwan) Chinese seem to value 24 karat gold only, "lesser" is not even being considered as gold. At least I was told and it's what I did see mostly on sale and of course we never returned empty-hand ;-)

Hi

I have been in Beijing the last few days, returning home tmrw. There is a shop along NanLuoGuXiang (Metro GuLouDaJie) which mainly sell creative clay pieces, but they do keep a small range of very unique and 'oriental' jewellery in a range of pendent, ear ring, bangle, necklace made of porcelin with elegant designs in white-blue glaze or unconventional clay. Rrices are reasonable given the uniqueness.NanLuoGuXiang is a popular tourist-friendly hutong (alley) lined with eclectic boutiques and creative & original designs local products/crafts.Shop name if I remember correctly is "Feng Nian Tao Yi" (Feng Nian Pottery Art). There are other shops alogn the street stocked jewellery, hope you will find something you like. If not,you may get conventional JinTaiLan (China blue)range of jewellery which are commonly available in shopping malls or tourist shops.
Cheers

Travel Tips for Beijing

Weeping Willows, Ponds and Ducks

by bermanv

I loved Beijing parks. Beihai parks, Temple of Heaven and Kunming Lakes (near the Summer Palace) are the best. They are wonderful combination of ancient architecture, beautiful nature and atmosphere of tranquility. Me and my beautiful girlfriend were sitting in a restaurant in Beihai park, looking at the ducks, sipping jasmine tea, talking, enjoying ourselves...

climb the Great Wall of China...

by london.gal

climb the Great Wall of China and then BUY a certificate to prove to your friends back home that you actually did conquer this awesome monument. Most likely they will think you're the world's greatest braggard. So you must stuff this into their face to show that you aren't!!!!!!! By the way, it's not difficult to get this certificate. Just pay 10 yuan (???£) to the vendors.

Athletics- university venues in northern Beijing

by minhuang

A lot of those venues are near the northwest between the North Fourth Ring Road and North Fifth Ring Road. Wudaokou and Qinghuayuanzhan stops on subway line 13 are the closest, but still a bit far to walk.

Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics Gymnasium is called 'Beihang' for short and is near Xueyuan Qiao.

Beijing Science and Technology University Gymnasium is off of Chengfu Lu.

CAU Gymnasium is also not far from the other two.

There will probably be lots of maps available in Beijing. CITS offices or the Friendship Stores around town are a good bet. If you want to get a map in advance in the U.S.A, you could try Borders bookstore.

Have fun!

China: shopping paradise!

by cinthya_in_victoria

One of the things you MUST do when shopping in China is to bargain. Start by offering a 60 or 70% off, depending on the product. Don't you thing it's too much, the prices they give to tourists are very high. Believe me, they will reduce it until it's fair for you both.

shopping,eating,drinking in old Beiing

by violett about Shichahai

Shichahai is close to Drum Tower and the north gate of Beihai Park. It is a famous scenic area that includes three lakes (Qian Hai, meaning Front Sea; Hou Hai, meaning Back Sea and Xi Hai, meaning Western Sea).
Gong Wang Fu (Prince Gong's Mansion), Chun Wang Fu (Price Chun's Mansion), the Former Residence of Song Qing Ling, the Former Residence of Mei Lan Fang (the well-known Peking Opera master)... are also nearby.
Shichahai is one of the best places to view well-preserved Hutongs and courtyards, such as "Jin Si Tao" and "Yan Dai Xie Jie" (looks like a long-stemmed pipe and used to selling long-stemmed pipes)
The 2 traditional famous restaurant are also there:
Kao Rou Ji (1848-): roast sheep, beef, duck
Xicheng District Qianhaidongyan 14
+86 10 64045921

Bao Du Zhang (1883-): cooked tripe of sheep or beef
Xicheng District Qianhaidongyan 17
+86 10 66138107
