Massage and Over are super cheap. Czech Republic like Taiwan, designer brands are more expensive?
American backpackers used to bring new Levis to the USSR and Eastern Block countries in the 80s to sell on the black market.
Same with that cheap Guatemalan poncho crap the hippies used to bring back for pennies and sell at Dead shows for…er…dollars.
Got local jeans for $24
There are a lot of Taiwanese tourists and Japan’s population is 5 times the size of Taiwan’s. Is it that hard to understand?
There’s a lot of Taiwanese and Chinese in Italy. Chinese immigrants come and they actually make a pretty good living. One reason is they’re willing to work harder and longer. Italians don’t work very much each week.
I’m actually about to pick up the Taiwanese ambassador here. Officially I think it’s not to Italy but to the Vatican.
Oh heck yeah. Prague ends sister city agreement with Beijing over one China policy.
I think I will go to Prague and spend some money there now. They got big balls.
They don’t need anymore tourists anyway…Already got way too many in most European cities. How are more Chinese tourists going to benefit anybody there !
There’s a bit of a weird phenomenon in Taiwan. Taiwanese seem to love going to Europe and overseas for vacation but still act very weird around foreigners in Taiwan.
So true so true
I was always curious why cities like Barcelona or Rome don’t set significant tourist taxes. That should reduce tourists while increasing income at the same time.
They are starting to do this in many cities.
They’re probably mostly written by native speakers.
The Japanese signs go back a few decades, don’t they?
Are there any international airports in Oz that don’t have Chinese signs by now?
If there are, I’m sure Winnie will be writing the civic authorities some strongly-worded letters.
It’s like going on safari. It’s nice to see elephants and tigers in their natural habitat, but you wouldn’t want to invite one over for tea.
Yeah they might mess up the carpets.
They probably act weird among Europeans in Europe too. I don’t see any contradiction.
Pirates FTW! Too bad Taiwan doesn’t even allow a pirate party to be formed…
Balls of steel, wish more people stand up to China like this. This was on the Prague mayor’s Facebook page with this picture attached.
" we call on the magistrate of the capital of Prague to change his approach as soon as possible, adapt to the trend of current development and historical progress and return to the path that supports the development of bilateral relations. Otherwise, he will eventually feel injury to his own interests," he threatens the Chinese Embassy to denounce the sister contract between Prague and Beijing.
We know that the Chinese regime likes to look at partners more like vassals and does not like disobedience. But we are the country of free people with the democratic Constitution and the authority and we refuse to bow down to the authoritarian regime responsible for the “reeducation” camps and trading with the illegal of the organ institutions.
" the moment you have pure threats from your partner, you can’t talk about the duration of the partnership. From the beginning, we wanted only a depoliticise relationship between Beijing and Prague, so that the capital would not be incorporated into the foreign policy of the Czech Republic. The other side began to bully Prague and now open threats have been added. I believe that the end of the partnership will be approved by the Czech Republic next week as well as that this strong statement by the Chinese Ambassador, which speaks about a completely different and totalitarian view of the world, takes the attitude of the Czech Republic," says Zdeněk Hřib-primátor Prahy and Michaela Krausova .
And we add an illustration picture that Chinese censors would like to delete from the internet.
