Go to the new Fu De second hand market, near the new South Bus Station. (A couple blocks south of the south train station.) Easiest way to get there: bus #127, caught somewhere along Long Quan Lou or Yi-er-yi Street. If you head south on Qing Nian Rd., keep going south after it turns in Nan Ba Rd., and go through the big clover leaf. It should be on your right, as you head south. It more or less replaces the 2d hand market that used to be on Bai Yun Rd. Lots of 2d hand bikes, computers, etc., etc.


No results found.


It's only in S. China that potatoes are yang yu 洋芋 or foreign root. In the North, they are tu dou earth bean. Yunnan people eat more potatoes than in most parts of China, but they are definitely a major part of Dong Bei cuisine also.

As for storage, in the Andean Plateau of Peru and Bolivia, the homeland of the potatoe, people sun dry them or freeze dry them, much as Dong Bei people do with cabbages and onions at the beginning of Winter.

The Andes have many varieties which have never been taken elsewhere. Maybe the Chinese ag. authorities can change that!



I've stayed here many times over the years and been very satisfied. Central location, comfortable rooms, reasonable prices. Some might mind the noise from the Bad Monkey Bar across the street, but I've always been able to sleep. The staff is very helpful with bus tickets, excursion tickets and the like.


Does anyone know if this is still a going concern? Or destroyed by the fire?


One of my favorite places in Jing Hong! It's my landmark, the center of the hotel, restaurant, bike, etc., area. I discovered dark Beer Lao there!
