Xi'an Models: Guo Jia

Xi'an Models: Guo Jia

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 ...

Eleven temporary markets will be open for public next week. And will add more after this. After a survey was conducted online with the question: do you need a market nearby?

One world – one dream
I will never forget that song. First of all it was the song for the Olympic games 2008 and you could hear it every time every where! I was even more fortunate, because for the Christmas party of 2008 my colleagues wanted to sing this song and practiced every single day for two weeks in the meeting...

Xi’an Underground Notes
Sometimes we like to think of the past in a deluded nostalgic way that just takes the good and conveniently leaves out the bad. My memories of my 7+ years in Xi’an are inevitably littered with omissions and thought of in the way an American sees a Norman Rockwell Christmas poster. But I do...

General Culture Tips
The culture of Xi'an descends from one of the world's earliest civilizations. The Guanzhong Ren (关中人/關中人) culture is considered the cultural antecedent of Xi'anese; their features are satirized as the "Ten Strangenesses of Guanzhong Ren" (关中十大怪/關中十大怪).... Click here to read the full story!
Real Estate Price war
Real Estate companies compete desperately for customers these days. Hard times for them but good for consumers. It was never that cheap to buy a house/apartment these days in Xi'an. How long it will last until prices start to raise up again? It is quite usual these days that real estate companies... Click here to read the full story!
Running in Xi'an
The pollution in Xi'an is not better or worse than in other chinese cities. Nevertheless, running in Xi'an is quite different from other cities I have been. There might be pleasant parks in Xi'an if you manage to go far away from the city centre. Country side like areas are practically not very... Click here to read the full story!

GeMing: A Park & More...
The GeMing Park in Xi'an has more to offer than big green trees and cultural performances: "Look there!" Klaus said excited. "Three people on that little motorbike!"

Xiamen is actually an island linked to the mainland by a long causeway of road and railway. Sightseeing by riding on the Island Ring Road and a long bridge along the seaside is wonderful.

The Chinese
This is a fantastic book. Honestly, I only have two minor issues with Jasper’s Becker’s book, The Chinese. First, it is ten years old and I really want an update.
