After spending an entire week in Beijing, we all began to feel more at home and slightly less foreign (despite the stares we got). Since it was also christmas eve, we decided to go to karaoke which is a big thing in China, and went to a club that was recommended by our student volunteers.
I don’t have a picture of the place unfortunately, but it was very cool. You get your own little room which is soundproofed with sofas, a table, microphones – including a standing one, a tv where the video/lyrics come up and two tambourines (which made it just that little bit more fun). It was pretty cheap, £5 for two hours with food but the food wasn’t really worth it. Despite being a Korean place, they had lots of English songs to choose from, and we filled two hours with English songs and one round of Gangnam Style. A very good night 😀
