    I cannot tell you exactly where to find them but I would recommend looking in a Traditional Chinese Medicine or Ayurvedic Medicine clinic. Chinatown possibly? Hope that will send you in the right direction. about 7 years ago

    i have 14 days, that includes flight time, what can and must i see in china...i am flying to shanghai..and i like abit of history and and

    In Shanghai, you must visit Shanghai Museum to satisfy your interests in history - get off at People's Square metro station and follow the signs. If you are willing to take a short plane trip, I would also recommend going to Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain) - you know all those classic Chinese paintings of jagged rock poking out from a sea of clouds, chances are the artist's view was from the slopes of Yellow Mountain. You can climb the whole way or take a cable car. Either way, you will need to stay at one of the overpriced hotels or camp and wait for the spectacular sunrise. Next stop, I highly recommend the nation's capital, Beijing. Do I have to mention that the Summer Palace, Great Wall, Forbidden City are a must-see? :) You can easily spent a week in Beijing simply seeing the sights, that's not even including all the shopping and eating! If want to squeeze in another city before you leave, I'd recommend either Xi'an for the terra cotta warriors or Chengdu for the chillies! Safe travels! :) about 7 years ago

    New York on a budget? Any tips on where to stay,eat, and visit?!

    You can get free accommodation by couchsurfing.org or if you prefer something more private airbnb.com -- the latter can get you a great location at an amazing rate. Sometimes less than hostels. (Last time I stayed in HI New York, it cost me US$50 a night to stay in a 12 bed dormitory & 3 of the messiest people in England also happened to be there!) When I was travelling around in NYC, I did my research on cheap places to eat via cheapassfood.com. At the Museum of Natural History, you can nominate an entry price to donate. Since I am a poor student, I nominated $2 and the cashier did not bat an eyelid and took my money. I heard rumours of people suggesting $0 but I certainly didn't have the courage. A whole day of learning about the awesomeness that is life, the universe, and everything. MoMA is free in the afternoons on a Friday but I cannot remember what time, you'll have to google it. The Met only has a suggested donation, so you can go in for free! I also spent a day wandering and sunbathing in Central Park just people watching and catching up on my Vitamin D. Free and relaxing. There are 2 free ferries in NYC. One that takes you to Governor's Island and another to Staten Island. It poured the day I went to Governor's Island but I imagine that it would be a wonderful day out on a sunny day. Make sure you get on the Staten Island COMMUTER ferry not the tour ones, they cost money! Here fun! :) about 7 years ago

    Chatuchak Market information or tips?

    Beware claustrophobics! It is giant maze of sois (small lanes) that house what seems like thousands and thousands of stalls selling everything you need or don't need, like your fifth pair of fisherman's pants. Take small change with you. Remember that it is the land of smiles, so when haggling do it with one. And do it reasonably, get a few items from the same stall and you're more likely to get a discount. Keep your bags close and in front of you at all times. It can get hot in there, so remember to stay hydrated! It can be easily accessed by Bangkok's Skytrain, get off at either Mochit or Chatuchak Park, if memory serves. Enjoy spending your Baht! :) about 7 years ago
