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.

Bargains and authentic experiences

The best souvenirs in Beijing will most likely be found where the locals like the shop, and not in tourist-crowded malls. If you love bargains, the Dirt Market is as appealing as any other flea market elsewhere in the world, yet a bit more exciting, as it can offer genuine treasures if you know your stuff. Other local shopping favorites, listed in this Stay.com staff guide for Beijing.
