Weibo Sells Fewer Shares Than Expected in Much-Anticipated IPO - WSJ

Weibo Corp., China’s version of Twitter, raised $286 million in its initial public offering in New York, falling short of expectations. The IPO launch for the company, which has more than 100 million active users, was seen as a big test of demand for Chinese Internet stocks ahead of a hotly anticipated Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. listing.

Walmart tells Beijing to improve food labelling rules

For most international companies, getting ahead in China means playing by Chinese rules. However, the world’s biggest retailer, Walmart, has taken the unusual step of asking Beijing to rewrite them.
The supermarket giant, whose international empire includes Asda, has challenged China to make food manufacturers and suppliers more accountable for problem labelling, instead of placing the burden on retailers.

Are Chinese Tourists The New "Ugly Americans"?

 The bucolic, once laid-back campus of one of Thailand's top universities is under a security clampdown. Not against a terrorist threat, but against Chinese tourists.

Thousands have clambered aboard student buses at Chiang Mai University, made a mess in cafeterias and sneaked into classes to attend lectures. Someone even pitched a tent by a picturesque lake. The reason: "Lost in Thailand," a 2012 slapstick comedy partly shot on campus that is China's highest-grossing homegrown movie ever.

New Zealand to Vietnam: Where Chinese Tourists Feel Most Satisfied - WSJ

 According to the China Tourism Academy, among 22 destinations studied, the most satisfying destinations for tourists from the Middle Kingdom in this year’s first quarter were New Zealand, the U.S. and Canada. At the bottom were Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Rounding out the middle of the pack were countries such as France (No. 9), this year’s hot-spot destination of Japan (No. 12) and Russia (No. 15). (See list below for full rankings.) The think-tank is affiliated with the China National Tourism Administration, a government body.
From nerdy TV shows like "Big Bang Theory" to ancient poetry, there are plenty of factors influencing whether Chinese tourists end up eating cheesecake in Pasadena or, say, admiring a willow tree in Cambridge. But just how happy are they when they finally arrive in their actual destinations of choice?

Nice authentic Chinese food (not spoiled by European tastes) that is very good when you are craving for Chinese food after too much Italian. Preparation was a bit fast-food style, but tasting pretty well. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere, well, real Chinese.
