    In the provinces where I am, it's usually native beer. There's Yanjing that comes from Beijing, it's not bad. There's Harbin, very nice. Tsingtao, it's ok as well. Around here they often drink a local fire water. it's like 50%-60% alcohol by volume and is incredibly cheap.

    Good evening.

    I've had Guinness plenty of times. Impossible to get here, but had a few jars when I was in Hong Kong last May.

    Apparently there's an Irish pub in Beijing, not been there yet though, could be an experience. LOL

    Ye the beer would probably cost a lot as thats a long distance to import something if that bar wants to make a profit

    Or the bars are jacking up the prices in addition to the import and shipping costs? Because food and Chinese beers are expensive as well in those sorts of places. It's often assumed that tourists have money to burn, especially American tourists.

    Taxis are the worse for ripping tourists off. If you can speak Mandarin, the fare might be 10RMB (about $1.50). Speak in English, you'll hear "Meter is broken!" and the fare will be 100RMB (about $15).

    Its a real strategy though, not so easy (but I play Normal though not Casual). And I kinda like it since I'm taking up Microbiology and Parasitology at the moment so yeah, I sort of relate. :D

    Won't recommend it. A chromebook needs constant data access to be used. Everything is in the cloud.

    Was wondering just how popular it really is. Seems to come with just about every cheapo tablet at the moment, and my neighbour's kids loves it. Angry Birds seem to be no longer in vogue, it's all about Cut the Rope now.
