So many Chinese cities to explore, so little time...don't sweat it though! We've got you covered! 😎 Take a personal tour of 7 amazing Chinese cities, and find the one that fits your style here:
I blindly arrived in China eight years ago with no guide book, planning or knowledge. Ever since that first crazy trip, I've explored most of China's largest cities. I've gotten to know and love many of them, remembering when they were once just impossible-to-pronounce dots on a map.

Chinese tattoo tip! If you want "power" or "strength", choose 力气 (lì qi) instead of 电 (diàn)...unless you really like electricity! 😄 More Chinese tattoo tips here: http://bit.ly/1Q8QnZw

Today is 清明节 (qīng míng jié) - Tomb Sweeping Day, literally "Clear Bright Festival", which has been celebrated in China for thousands of years. Watch this quick video to see how Chinese people pay respects to their ancestors. How do you pay respects in your culture? #qingmingjie

Do you know what it's really like to work in a Chinese office? You might be surprised...

Here's part of a real conversation that happened in my office: Chinese coworker:“Andrew,你可以给我 more precise design steps for 我们的产品吗?” authentic office conversation 1 (nǐ kě yǐ gěi wǒ _____wǒ men de chǎn pǐn ma). Me: "可以的。你要更多 flowchart technicality 还是用户故事?

Whoa...Chinese designer 胡社光 (hú shè guāng) made waves at China's Fashion Week - 时装周 (shí zhuāng zhōu). What do you think? Avant-garde or WTF?
Models in full fake masks, Satanic horns and sporting blood-covered dolls put on a sinister show for designer Hu Sheguang's autumn/winter 2016 collection at China Fashion Week in Beijing.

Normal, boring shopping in Chinese is 购物 (gòu wù). But if you shop like your life depends on it, then you go 血拼 (xuè pīn)! This #YOYOslang not only sounds like the English word "shopping", but the characters are 血 (xuè) - "blood" and 拼 (pīn) - "risk".

我们去血拼吧!百货公司正在打折 (wǒ men qù xuè pīn ba! bǎi huò gōng sī zhèng zài dǎ zhé)! - Let's go on a shopping spree! The department store has a sale right now. 

What do you think? Do you go 购物 (gòu wù) or 血拼 (xuè pīn)? 😄

Get funky with these Chinese snacks! If you've never heard of 毛蛋 (máo dàn) - literally "hair eggs", prepare yourself for a shock!
On my weekly grocery shopping trips, I often pause at the snack aisle and stare forlornly at my options. Yes, potato chips are fine, and Oreos are okay...but the amazing snacks from my childhood are nowhere to be found, even in the supermarkets of the nearest Chinatown.

Chinese language and travel go hand in hand. Show Chinese friends your cosmopolitan view of life with this useful #chengyu!

你是什么样的人 (nǐ shì shén me yàng de rén) - What kind of person are you?
我是个四海为家的人 (wǒ shì ge sì hǎi wéi jiā de rén) - I'm cosmopolitan! Wherever I go, I'm home. (literally: I am a "4 seas are home" person)

Fun fact: This is also the name of the well-known cocktail!
我要一杯四海为家 (wǒ yào yì bēi sì hǎi wéi jiā) - I want a Cosmopolitan!

Are you a 四海为家的人 (sì hǎi wéi jiā de rén)? Where do you want to go in China?
