I study mandarin in school (though I'm terrible at it), and for some reason beyond me, we've been offered to travel to China for about two weeks. I don't know how many chinese people are on facepunch, but perhaps someone could give some tips on neat things to do/don't do or buy while there? Of course we have a curricular schedule, but we'll have some free time as well, and I don't feel like going all the way to China only to sit at some shitty hotel room when not doing schoolwork. I'm 18, if that bears any relevance.
Firstly we'll be going to Nanjing, and then to Shanghai.
