    Get a flight down to Hong Kong and join us in Delaney's for one of the big games.

    We're having a few production related issues with our factories out there and so I've been given the task of solving them.

    Sketchy at best, but good enough to get by and I am up to scratch on a lot of the technical Chinese related to racquet production. For the rest I guess I just find a woman and go from there.

    I'm moving to Taiyuan in August - guess I'll be the only Spurs fan there!

    Try and get there for the end of July and make a trip to Beijing for the Asia Cup, followed by a weekend in Hong Kong for the match here - the perfect introduction to Greater China. Check out the Spurs in Hong Kong thread for details.

    I would love to, but packing up my whole life in England and moving out to China doesn't give me much room for manoeuvre!

    Bet we don't play in Beijing again for ages...typical :evil:

    Spurs haven't been to HK for about 15 years, so it'll be a while before they're back after this visit.

    Fans' guide to Beijing


    The Barclays Premier League have put together a guide to Beijing for fans travelling to China for the Barclays Asia Trophy.

    We face West Ham on Wednesday, July 29 before taking on either Hull City or Beijing Gouan on Friday, July 31.

    The tournament takes place at the Worker's Stadium in Beijing.

    The guide is available online in a pdf format by CLICKING HERE...



    EXTRACT

    LOCAL HOSPITALITY AND CUSTOMS

    • The Chinese are usually well-versed in their country’s history,
    poetry and geography, and appreciate it if you can show you have
    a little knowledge about China, or even just an interest in the
    local culture.

    • Stick to safe conversation topics and avoid certain sensitive
    subjects! Taiwan, Tibet and Xinjiang are considered to be part
    of China. Do not criticise China or Britain, even in a light-hearted
    way. This is regarded as disloyal in China. Avoid jokes of a
    sexual connotation.

    • In China the issue of ‘losing face’ is taken very seriously. This
    can be defined as status, ego or self-respect. This can be seen as
    any situation that would bring shame on or reflect badly on an
    individual, family or the nation as a whole. In situations where
    conflict arises, negotiating an outcome that benefits both parties
    is preferable to a direct confrontation.
