Q: Where to meet people in Beijing?

I'm not into clubbing, bars, or art galleries that much.  But sometimes I feel like that can be the only way to meet people here (I've checked the Beijinger and sometimes that's all I find).  I like hiking and sports, but I don't want to shell out 1,000 RMB each time to hike a mountain.  Where do you go to meet new people in Beijing?

Ya, as @Brisguy says, joining a sports club is a good way. There are a few good rugby clubs (if that's your thing). Aound the gulou area are some low key, relaxed bars (even though you said that isn't your thing) where you can easily meet people. Going to a backpackers is also good but the people you meet there are usually just here short-term so they'll be leaving soon. Another way is to look up when couch surfing meetings are held (usually once a month) and the people there are always really nice, and open to meeting new people. Not really my thing, but church is a good place to if you're so inclined. Another good way is to sign up for Chinese language classes. There you'll also meet a lot of foreigners in a similar position to yourself. Almost all the people I know here now I met while I was studying Chinese at a university in Wudaokou for the first 18 months I was here. Also, if you're into sports try finding a sports bar where you can watch sport and meet people with a similar interest.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
