Banking in China

Posted on August 24, 2011 at 10:55pm 4 Comments

Maybe this is somehow off topic but I will give it a try.

 

Guess most of you folks have banking accounts in your home country and maybe a simple savings account here in China to be able to transfer some money to Xi'An.

 

So I did ... in my first days in Xi'An I went to the Bank of China, opened a savings account, got a bank card (valid in China only) and so I was able to transfer money to China.

 

Basically, I need much more than…

Getting Started ... Xi'An public transportation

Posted on August 12, 2011 at 11:56am 0 Comments

As a newbie to Xi'An and China I am trying to post some little solutions to typical problems a foreigner will see when he or she cannot manage the Chinese language.

 

I hope this will be useful for foreigners ...

 

I faced some little problems when I have tried to use a bus in Xi'An.

 

First: All the routes of busses and even schedules are in Chinese only.

After some time I figured out that Google Maps can be a big help.

 

Just…

On Yan Ta Xi Lu and others streets around the 'pagoda', there are lots of bars and restaurants (including Italian, Indian, Korean, Japanese, German ...), some of them with good live music (including a British bar), where the music bands consist of 3-4 people.


First to know so many in Xi'an. I only know ParkQin and Belgium. So many bars are new or lasted some years?
