Be careful in Harbin

Avoid going into small bathhouses and small KTV alone, as you may end up being forced to pay for a bill you didn't order. If you choose to go, be mindful of what you are getting into and leave at the first sign of illegal activity. People interested in a "massage" with extras should avoid doing it in Harbin.

What to drink at Northeast China

Beer (啤酒)is probably the cheapest and safest thing to drink - and being Northeast China - comes in many varieties and is available almost anywhere. A big bottle (630 ml) should cost between ¥1-5. In the summer months good draft beer is available from most small restaurants, the black beer(黑啤) being particularly good.

Huadan (华丹), Jinshibai (金士百) and Yinpu (银浦) beers are all brewed in Jilin Province. There are also various Harbin beers (哈尔滨啤酒) available, as well as Bing Chuan (冰川) from the Korean prefecture of Jilin Province.

Like all cities in China, avoid drinking bottled water from street vendors and try instead at a supermarket or convenience store.

A Food Dilettante's Musings: Harbin Russian Restaurant: Katusha

A Food Dilettante's Musings: Harbin Russian Restaurant: Katusha | Travelasia | Scoop.it
Pachoman's insight:

nother recommendation for hearty Russian fare is Katusha Restaurant, located at the edge of the river near Zhaolin Park (tel: 13836148098), but you will need to speak Chinese or Mandarin there. Good local Chinese food abounds around town; especially recommended are the local chun bing (spring rolls) anddong bei jiaozi (northeastern dumplings).

MONYWA – PHO-WIN DAUNG - PAKOKKU - BAGAN (B)

"Rise early to take the ferry to the other side of the Chindwin River where you board a pick-up to see the seldom visited 15th Pho Win Daung temple complex where more than 450,000 sandstone Buddha’s were carved in the hillsides in caves, alcoves, or tiny niches. The cave murals are still intact with indigo blues and soft pastels. Many of the Buddha’s can be seen without entering the caves or niches and footwear is permitted as long as one is not entering the sanctuaries. A stunning Buddha not to be missed is the reclining Buddha resting on a rectangular stone mosaic which shimmers with cut glass." Then continue to Pankangyi, a 19th century town with old city walls and an archaeological museum. Visit to the Pakhan-ngai Kyaung, a 19th century largest wooden monastery with 332 teak pillars. En route stop at some villages to study the daily life of the people in the rural area. After arrival in Pakokku, a bustling tobacco trading centre, take a private boat and cross the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River to Bagan (appr. 2 hours). Overnight in Bagan
