China travel guide, travel tips, attractions, funny stuff!
WELCOME TO CHINA-MIKE.COM!
T here s no shortage of China travel sites out there. But I ve always found them too be too boring and sterile. Instead, I want to give an uncensored look into modern China, warts and all.
Is China safe to travel? Will anyone speak English? Am I getting ripped off? What kind of meat is that exactly? Yeah, I know it s easy for first-time travelers to feel a bit freaked out by it all. And that s why I started this site to give you practical tips for staying safe and making the most out of your trip.
Can any other country offer travelers as much in a single visit? From the Great Wall to the mist-covered Yellow Mountains to the mystical allure of Tibet, China s got it all. History and culture? Check. You like Chinese food? Fuggetaboutit!
Every day is a new adventure in the Middle Kingdom. Like a feast of dim sum, China serves up a tasty smorgasbord of jaw-dropping destinations, rich history, and unique experiences .leaving you both deeply satisfied and hungry for more (an hour later perhaps).
Thanks for visiting!
