#10: Strip Clubs/Strippers

Everyone knows that in every developed country in the world you can go and watch young ladies (or laddies, if you're into that) take their clothes off in public, all the whilst enjoying your favourite beverage. This is something China needs right now!

As evidence of this, go to any strip club in any western country and you'll see it will be filled with Chinese male students spending the money their parents gave them for their education on tips and lap dances.

#9: Casinos

Hong Kong and Macao don't count... gambling should be made available to all Chinese! Let's face it, gambling is part of Chinese culture! It is as much "Chinese" as Shark Fin Soup and Mah Jong!

Denying the majority of Chinese the thrill of losing all their money playing roulette or black jack is just wrong!

As above, visit any casino overseas and it will be full of Chinese.

#8: Comic stores/Collectible shops/toy stores

The child or geek in all of us needs this crap! The only available stuff here is 2nd or 3rd rate Japanese trash. Where's my 12" Silent Bob collectible? Huh? Huh?!?

What's more, 99% of this stuff is made in China! Why bother exporting it when it could be sold here?

#7: kick-ass live concerts

Man, I used to go to concerts almost weekly. The Stones, R.E.M., Nirvana, Sex Pistols (re-formed), Dire Straits, Bee Gees, Simply Red, Counting Crows, The Who.. seen 'em all! The closest I've been in China was seeing Public Enemy... minus Flavor Flav and Terminator X (meaning it was a Chuck D solo show)!

#6: "Wendy's"

Okay, Burger King was a good start (albeit only available at Terminal 3). Next step needs to be "Wendy's." I need me some chili 'n' cheese, nacho salad and bacon/mushroom cheese melt burgers now!

#5: Home karaoke machines

It makes sense! Chinese people love KTV! Why not do it at home?!? 160,000,000 Japanese have discovered the joys of warbling "Take me to your heart" in the privacy of their own abode! Seriously, if I had enough money to invest I would start a home karaoke machine business. It's money for the taking!!

#3: (Legal) porn


Not that that I watch it, but- let's face it- it's a 10 billion dollar industry in the U.S.

...Who doesn't want a piece of that? (the industry, I mean)

#2: Pies

I'm talkin' mince pies, steak pies, potato top pies (see pic), curry pies, steak and mushroom pies...

The closest I've seen in China were the pies at the Aussie pub in Hong Kong. They were.... okay.

Nothing- nothing!- beats a piping hot pie on a cold winter morning while you're standing at a bus stop having missed breakfast.

Nothing.

By the way, those pastries at The Lido are okay but nowhere near like a good ol' kiwi pie!

in limited quantities, you can find them in Nanluoguxiang and also Gulou Dongdajie (where all the pirate xbox stores are)

there was one of these types of places in Tongli Studios or Sanlitun 3.3 as well but i haven't set foot in either of those hell-holes in a few months so i can't recall the details

I don't understand how could you have possibly saved 5 yuan by paying 22 yuan for a box of egg turd that is sold individually for 5 yuan each? If you got 6 turd, you saved 8 yuan; with 5 turd, you saved 3 yuan. KFC cheats?
