Bringing Antique Funiture to the US  (1 Answer)

My parents decide to sell the house in Guangdong China and ask me to help them move the antique furniture left by my great grandmother to the US. The furniture is more for sentimental value. I asked container companies to help but they said the chinese customs won't allow this due to the fact that they are antiques. I was told that antique dealers in China who exports to the US will be able to help. How can I find a dependable antique dealer?

PLease kindly advise, if its possible for me to go to Wu Yi Shan, Shenzhen ..etc from Guangzhou or Shantou? how long is the journey? Or is it possbile for me to get a local tour agent in Guangzhou who can help bring us around?

Please kindly share the contacts of these agents.

Is it worth learning Cantonese for travel in Guangdong/Guangxi?  (6 Answers)

Hi there. My girlfriend and I are going to cycle across China from Hong Kong to Beijing via Chengdu soon. We're both learning some Mandarin, but the first leg of our journey will take place in Cantonese-speaking regions. I was wondering, if we use basic Mandarin phrases in these areas (simple things like 'how much is this?' and 'where can I find...?' and so on) will we be understood? Or will locals only understand Cantonese? I've met people from Hong Kong who don't know a word of Mandarin but I wondered if it was different in mainland China.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

My China Tour  (6 Answers)

Dear VTers.
Me and my wife (Indonesian backpackers) needs your help.

We will be in Shenzhen from Singapore on 9 October. Our flight's ETA from Singapore will be 23:05. The next day's night, 10 October, we will fly to Beijing. We will stay in Beijing until 14 October then fly to Xi'an. From Xi'an we will fly to Guangzhou on 16 Oct, then leaving Guangzhou to Shenzhen on 18 Oct. Staying 2 nights in Shenzhen, we will then catch our flight to Singapore before fling back to Indonesia.

Now, here are our questions:

1. Since our flight to Beijing will be taking-off from Shenzhen's airport at 20:25, is it wise to stay in a hotel "opposite to The Bao An International Airport A/F Departure Lounge, Shenzhen."? Is it far from downtown Shenzhen?

2. Any comment/experience on Beijing New Dragon Hostel, No.26, Shijia Huton Dongcheng district Beijing?

3. In Xi'an we are going to see the Terracotta Warrior. Any suggestion as to places to stay (near to the location, yet easy to get transprtation to the airport)?

We really appreciate any suggestion.

Best regards.

Urgent: finding a 24hour eatery/entertainment area to rest from 25th April till 26th April 2007  (1 Answer)

Hey guys/gals,

I need your help urgently. I am travelling with my companion (both of us being guys from Singapore)from 14th- 26th April 2007. To our dismay it is during the midst of the Guangzhou Import Export Fair. We had already bowed to the fact that being budget travllers from Singapore, we will not be able to secure a hotel stay during that period. Currently, we had planned from 14th to 25th to stay outside of guangzhou, but due to our flight being in Guangzhou at 1000, we had to stay overnight in guangzhou on 25th April. I was wondering if you guys know of any 24 hour restaurant or eateries, entertainment place (example foot massage centre etc) that we can just take a rest with our backpacks till our return flight?
