OF COURSE! Right? Having lived in other parts of China and Beijing itself, I can safety pronounce my favourite place in China -- Wudaokuo <3 Can I ever forget Wu Club, Propaganda, Sensation, La Bamba, Helen's.... (the list goes on) The most perfect place to grow as a Chinese student, with people from all around the world, multiple international restaurants, Wudaokuo is only getting better.
Most people come to BLCU with the serious intent to study Mandarin, others to explore the forward culture. There are many reasons one should learn mandarin (Read: Chinese is easy! 3 reasons you should learn mandarin) but honestly, the best parts are being able to converse with the taxi drivers, ordering your food in restaurants and talking to strangers at nightclubs. Noone seems to appreciate these moments where we are able to, so easily, fit into their world and visa versa.
