Xi'an continues as a breeding ground for potential supermodels. The latest example is our new discovery and head-turner Guo Jia, who will be craning necks when she appears on local fashion magazines this year. We are proud of having her onboard.

This university student has been thrust onto the fashion stage in the past couple of months and is really making an impact, becoming a new favorite ND Model! Since winning a model contest in Hangzhou last year, 1,78m Guo Jia will ...

Out Of Touch
Beijing exists in a void that is out of touch with the charms of China I sought to experience. It's a city full of materialistic dreams and cluttered with tower cranes. Watching western businessmen in their suits, I'm reminded of ancient vikings crashing upon the shores of distant lands... Click here to read the full story!
1+1 Club
When you enter the door of this popular club a standard security check awaits you. That is quite normal here for this kind of clubs and should be seen as a positive measure that increases safety.

Shaanxi's diversity
Local Xi'anese in general naturally prefer to communicate in their own dialect (Guanzhong Hua) rather than in Mandarin. You can easily hear people bargaining in the market in Guanzhong hua, or taxi drivers, close local friends or colleagues who chat with you in their own dialect. Unlike Shanghai...

Xi’an-China: An overrated tourist destination

The personal price we pay
I originally wrote this as a list of warning for those who are maybe a bit over excited about coming to work in China. I didn’t mean it as a bash, but just a list of things that are real.
