Expat in Beijing

In August 2010 I moved to China for half a year, planning to come back somewhere in March of 2011. That didn’t happen. I still live and work in China.

I share travel information about China as well as other countries on my website, I give tips on how to find a teaching job, share my thoughts on places I’ve slept and give budget tips.

Antiques in Beijing

There’s probably nowhere else quite like China when it comes to shopping for antiques and old relics, and in all of China, Beijing is the best place to find them. Beijing Curio City is a four-storey complex packed full of ancient antiques, while we also came across a huge number of goodies at Panjiayuan Market (Dirt Market), a real paradise for those who know how to bargain.
