What to bring to China?
« on: December 26, 2013, 09:29:57 AM »
I'll be heading to china for a month of shredding in a few days and am trying to get my shit together. I think I'm pretty much good to go but thought if I asked a few people they might think of something I didn't. Thanks in advance ;D

Bring your A-game.
Bring an A-class filmer.
Bring the ill homies.
Bring the whole crew.
Bring the bitches.
Bring the ruckus.
Bring the weed.
Bring the hammers.

Or you know, socks and stuff.

Check out what the Legion of Sorts dudes are up to, if you're going to be around Shanghai.

You've probably heard a lot of this, but in case you haven't:
--toilet paper (seriously, some places won't have it)
--a little extra money for bottled water
--maybe set up a VPN before you head head out there

And if you are in Shanghai, absolutely hit up Homies: http://www.timeoutshanghai.com/venue/Restaurants__Cafes-Western-American/9556/Homies.html

Have an awesome time!

where are you gonna be? i moved here 8 months a go.. also depends which time of the year you decide to visit..  i'd suggest just learn some basic mandarin (*numbers, excuse me, thanks etc) can be found in phrasebooks or online. also download this app called Pleco- its a translator you can use w/o internet connection.. I'd suggest prepare your self for more of the culture shock, getting used to densely packed places, etc.. all depending on your traveling experience.


but yeah honestly a lot of basic shit mentioned here can be purchased once you're here for reallllllyyy cheap. since you're visiting there's not much i'd recommend.. moving would be another story.. best of luck and have fun.

How much mandarin do you speak fullfillthedream and how have you gone about learning?  Don't you live in Guangzhou (cantonese) anyway?
