Writing about travel in China

I write articles about travel in China for Suite101.com. Here's a few of my latest articles which will be helpful if you're headed to the Middle Kingdom:
  • Learn Chinese online is a review of some of the sites where you can learn how to speak Mandarin online and, best of all, for free.
  • If you get sick in Beijing, where do you go? Here's a list of some of the clinics which treat foreigners with Western medical techniques.
  • A quick primer on Chinese vegetables.
  • Chinese papercuts make great inexpensive souvenirs, and they're practically weightless in your luggage!
  • Trains in China provide an efficient way to move around this huge country.
  • The Wangfujing night food market, pictured here, is one of my favorite places to eat in Beijing. It was one of the first China travel articles I wrote for Suite101.

I'm not the only one who writes about China travel for Suite101. Here are some others:

  • Solange Hando is the feature writer for Southeast Asia and China. She gave a very positive review to my Parents Guide to Beijing, on sale at GuideGecko. Order your copy soon if you'll be giving it as a Christmas present. And don't forget to order a copy of DIY Beijing while you're at it.
  • Mistie Shaw is an American who now lives in Luoyang in central China where she teaches English as a second language.
  • Bridget Coila is another American who now lives in Beijing. Some of her articles offer tips on nightlife and the arts.
