In response to Re Xiamen-on-sea? (Taffy)

I have not been there, but I lived in Fuzhou and met people who lived and worked in Xiamen.

From what I was told the environment is not bad, it's good there in summer, but Fujian is expensive and it's very cold in winter, even coastal areas like Fuzhou and Xiamen. Then there are the hordes of young ex-pat fuckwits there that I was also told about. Maybe they are not there now.

There are much better places in Asia, warm tropical weather, friendly people, cheaper and better food and beer.

SE-Asia is the place to be, Pattaya or Bali.

Most people who have lived in China or Korea won't go back after they have experienced Pattaya or Bali.

If Pattaya is a bit too much, and some people don't like the intensity of the place, Hua Hin not far away is an alternative. Still a fairly laid back place, the nightlife is nothing like in Pattaya, but there are still enough bars and restaurants to keep most ex-pats happy.

I'd be checking that out, even Jomtien a bit away central Pattaya is ok, a lot of families living there. Hua Hin is a good place for families also IMO.
