"Watch the change and the water" Beijing Warnings Or Dangers Tip by pappagene

Beijing Warnings and Dangers: 284 reviews and 201 photos

Many in our group found out that some of the steet vendors had given them "funny money" in change. Our tour guide looked at the bills that were given to them and said that they were counterfit. Know your money.

We had to watch where we bought our bottled water too. some of the vendors were selling bottled water, but we were told that many of them just dug empties out of the trash and refilled them from the tap. EWWWWWWW
