Racism Situation

by pipipopo

Hi

I'm Chinese and I was wondering how's the racism situation in Belfast currently?

I understand that it is carried out by a small group of people but how bad is it?


Thanks

Racism? as long as your nice to the local, and respect local culture,whether you are chinese or not, it will never be an issue. If your in Rome, do what the Romans do.

I really do not think you will encounter any more racism in Belfast than in any other European city, and it is most likely that you will encounter none whatsoever anyway (as is the case in any European city).

Re: Racism Situation

by SallyM

I've not heard that racism is a particular issue in Belfast - I never saw any signs of it when I was there.

Re: Racism Situation

by leics

I think there have been some internet articles (perhaps hyped?) about some semingly racist attacks in one particular area of the city several years ago. It may be that the OP has seen those.

As a British person I certainly had no idea whatsoever that Belfast had any more issues with racism than anywhere else, and I suspect that is the reality of the situation. (and certainly for visitors, as it is elsewhere in the UK).

Hi,

I've lived in Belfast since the day I was born and in all honesty there isn't a lot of Racism- I have many chinese & malasian friends and they have never had any trouble. In recent years Ive heard of a few racist attacks but anywhere where you have a large group of people and cultures, confrontations sometimes occur. I honestly think you'll be okay, on the whole, Belfast people are very friendly and hospitable! If you're worried though, send me a message and I'll answer any questions you have

Travel Tips for Belfast

pubs

by catherineneill

just to let you know, in northern ireland you wont be allowed in most pubs in a baseball cap or football shirt. i thought this was perfectly normal until i went to uni in scotland and saw people in the pubs in their football gear.

Beaches

by Catspjm

Strange but true.
The north Antrim coast has some of the best beaches in Europe, with a total of 6 having Blue Flag status.
Here our intrepid explorer Maaaarii is found braving the elements on Portstewart strand. One of our finest examples. She assures me that the woman swimming is from Latvia. Apparently they are even more insane than Estonians :-)

You may also notice that Maaaari had to change after the unfortunate incident at the Bushmills Distillery

The Bot - The student bar

by kranstonakov about the Bot

Now this place is bunged - 27/7/365 - I HATE THE PLACE - But i have to mention it, as its been the most profitable bar in the country for years. Its always packed, you can't get a drink, the country fried students are annoying, you cant understand them. A bar for small time folk. Losers. Gaelic tops and other taigwear

Fine Indian cuisine

by clivedinburgh about Gingeroot

This restaurant has been open about 18 months and have dined here several times. Once was with a large group who all enjoyed their meals (even the ones who'd never ate indian before). The staff are very helpful and the owner is always keen to ensure you have a good time (was giving out some nibbles to our table to entice people towards certain items).

the decor is very modern and there is an online menu on their excellent website. Too many to choose

'The Thing with the Ring'...

by leics

....or 'the doll on the ball' (according to locals).

Actually, this rather impressive sculpture is 'Harmony' by Andy Scott. She stands in Thanksgiving Square, by the side of the River Lagan and Queen's Bridge, was funded by cross-community voluntary donations and was unveiled in 2005.

Her purpose?

'The Statue of Harmony stands here on Thanksgiving Square on a globe that symbolises the oneness of mankind. It is a symbol of the light which can enrich our lives through peace, reconciliation and respect for diversity.'
