Q: Anyone know of a nice, non-tourist teahouse in Beijing?

Yesterday I got the sudden urge to find a tranquil teahouse and just wile away the afternoon. However, I quickly discovered that I don't actually know of any non-tourist-trap teahouse in Beijing. Anyone have any tips or insights into where to go?

Some of the major parks in Beijing have no-frills tea houses where residents sit, chatter, play card games and drink tea. Or you could try the Confucius Teahouse right opposite the Confucius Temple of Guozidian Hutong. It attracts some tourists but it's far less touristy than the likes of Laoshe Teahouses.

A: Your potential employer is right! Demand for Medical exam before
A:Your potential employer is right! Demand for Medical exam before granting Z visa is to make sure, you won't be entering China in any abnormal and harmful to others condition.Few days after your arrival to China, you'll be required to complete another ME ... If ME in China will be OK, you'll get a Residence permit stamp into your book some 10-days afterwards. Imagine, you're an employer, who can sponsor my entry and work in China, but after my arrival to China would be found I carry some sickness, which would prevent Chinese .gov to issue a Residence permit. Rule is: Z visa should be converted into Residence permit in 30-days after entry to China.    So, my advice is:"Complete ME in your home country and forward medical results to your employer".Z visa grant will follow shortly afterwards. Employer is not wrong at their demand for the pre-arrival ME from your home country hospital.   -- icnif77
