Cost estimate for China trip:
       airplane to/from China: $700 to $900
       HK-SZ: $50
       SZ-Shanghai: $100
       Shanghai-Beijing: $100
       4 nights in HK: $100
       3 nights in SZ: $75
       6 nights in Shanghai: $150
       7 nights in Beijing: $175
       20 days of food: $330
You'll probably want a bit of money for playing, and souvenirs, too ($100 to $300?). But the above adds up to $1,080, plus air fare to/from China.


Stephen Balaban suggests:

  • Eat Jian Bing - buy them from the street (they are egg crepes that

are great for breakfast)

  • Go to ZhongGuanCun 中关村, this is technology heaven and is not far from 798
  • Go to 798 and check out the Yuanfen~Flow incubator
  • Stop by a Beijing Linux Users Group (BLUG) meeting -- Peter Junge

<peter.junge *at* beijinglug *dot* org> & Ollo "Barcode" barcode
<barcode *at* beijinglug *dot* org> are great guys

  • I thoroughly enjoyed simply walking around and finding a park early

in the morning or later in the afternoon and just hanging out with old
people doing tai chi and water-brush calligraphy if I wanted to relax


Peter, of the Beijing Int'l Film Fest recommends (in Beijing):

  • meet Matthew Gao Hong Wei and see his exhibit at Central Academy of Fine Arts
  • digital media lab at Central Academy of Fine Arts
  • Veggie Table vegan restaurant
  • Beijing International Film Festival
