  We read a lot about travel over the course of one week and, after much sifting and sorting, we've rounded up a few of our favorites. From news and reviews to great blog posts, unusual destinations and travel stories, read on for our picks.

  • Next we'll move on to expats in China, starting with JohninChina's post about the end of the school semester, and some of the greatest answers ever given to an English exam.
  • Chengdu during the early 1980s.
  • Over at Bytes of China, Tricia Wang gives us this fascinating account of class division in China: How I was treated on the subway while doing fieldwork on migrant workers.
  • For lolz, you can check out How Shanghainese view the rest of China, a graphic on Shanghaiist's site (all in Chinese characters). The graphic basically has Shanghainese looking down their long noses at every one else in China... and part of the reason why might be this massive Ikea going up in Shanghai. The second largest in the world, it's the size of six football fields! Story courtesy of CNNGo.
  • We also have a great series of posts from Caroline Berg at the Laowai Telegraph called Hong Kong visa run, for example, or just traveling through.
  • We'll wrap things up this week with a post about China Blogger Spotlight, Stephen Whale.
