    When you guys have traveled to china, did u learn some kung fu?

    There is a martial art master teaches Tai Chi in Beihai Park in Beijing. If you go to the park, go to the Royal Temple in the North of the lake. You will see people studing Tai Chi, push hand, sward there. Some of his students are foreigners, one of them used to study martial arts in Shaolin Temple. If you want to study something real, it's a good try. But be patient cause it'll be a very long jounery to became a "Kong Fu Panda". 5-10 years maybe. It take years to practice and improve your nerve's instinct reaction and compat skills. Mr. Yang Song Quan, grand son of Chen Zhaopei (陈照丕; 1893–1972) , Chen-style Tai Chi master. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chen_style_tai_chi_chuan over 8 years ago

    1. Silk market & Pearl market: merchants there can speak many languages, interesting place if you enjoy bargaining. Be reminded that be careful on quality control. 2. Yan Sha Outlet: sells "off season" popular brands cloths, discount from 10%-70% off. Good choice for anyone who want good quality things. No bargaining. Locating in east south 4th ring road. Shoes, dress, out door clothes, suitcases...whatever you want. over 8 years ago

    Should I take the overnight train from Beijing to Shanghai, or should I do it during the day?

    I cant say the countryside is amazing, but it's interesting seeing views transform from cold Northern China to Southern China, and from big cities downtown to cuontryside. 5~6 hours by train is ok for people at day time. If travel at night, by slow train. It takes about 11~14 hours, and it's tiring. I suggest to take Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway, see below for train information: Beijing-Shanghai 1318kl Total about 5.5 hours first class: RMB935, Second class: RMB555 first train from 7:00am, last train 17:39pm 2~4 trains per hours over 8 years ago
