I know the Zhao Jun Festival is also going on now or in the coming days. I’ll try to post some information about that too.
You can also find discounts on things like massages, KTV, hotels, beverage stands, travel, and so on. Below I’ve linked to two different group purchasing websites, but I’m sure there are more. If you know of others link to them in the forum or in the comments below.
If you can’t read Chinese, get a local friend to help you register for an account and set up your preferences for area of town, kind of cuisine, etc.
Also comment or share in the forum if you see a particularly good deal you think others should know about!
I created this site also because there doesn’t seem to be much cohesion or camaraderie amongst the foreigners here and I hope this site can help with that.
I also mostly want us to have a place to learn from each other about how to live more efficiently in this city we call home.
Until we get a proper forum up, just post any questions or comments as a comment and we (and hopefully our readers!) will respond.
Enjoy our site and enjoy your time in Hohhot!
Just a few ground rules:
Posts with profanity will be deleted.
We all experience differing degrees of culture shock/culture stress at different points of our stay here and we need safe environments for expressing ourselves. However, any post that we deem to be derogatory to this country or to Chinese people will be deleted.
Any post with content that is sexually explicit or of an adult nature will be deleted.
