Who are we? Best China Info! Why?
Because we’re genuine. Authentic.

About Us
We intend Best China Info to be a genuine and authentic ‘go-to’ resource for all China-related information, news, insider tips and advice, and humorous anecdotes, real-life snapshots of real life in China  – written by real people with experience of living in China,  previously having lived and worked in Vietnam, Thailand, North Africa, UK, Europe, US and Australia – so we have quite a broad perspective of life around the world!

Barrie can be found on twitter usually hanging around in the ‘top people top ten’ if you search #China or China – no idea how significant this is considering who twitter place above him.. ;> ) p.s. The ‘B’ on our insignia is actually the Chinese character: ‘Nai’; Meaning: ‘So it is’, ‘However’, ‘Therefore’, ‘Then’, ‘Be really’, ‘Only then’, ‘You’, ‘Your’!

He considers himself a creative, optimistic, critical, whimsical and perspicacious ‘man of the world’.

China Blog..? Well yes.. quite..

We’ve looked at many blogs, ‘China-centric’ sites and portals.. my opinion (B) is that most are of little practical use at best, inaccurate, outdated ‘cut and paste’, or downright misinformation at worst.

They tend to fall into two categories: 
1: The commercial blog which is blatantly trying to ‘shift product’
and serve only as a way to sell *advertising space.. and
2. The ‘know-it-all’, ‘been there, done that’; ‘Why can’t China be more like my country?

So. Why is ‘best China info’ different?
Precisely because of the previous statement!
Arriving in China and scouring the internet for useful blogs and guides to life in China we found there really weren’t so many of much use, and very few that felt ‘real’, genuine.. such is the ‘blogosphere’, everyone wants to be a ‘digital nomad’ these daze.. hard to sort the grain from the chaff.. and there’s more chaff than grain..

That’s why we decided to create what we sincerely hope will be a genuine and useful guide; based on years of experience and knowledge gained as a ‘man of the world’, now living in China, and a born and bred Chinese citizen – the latter being far more critical than the former!

We should note that there are, of course, some very useful, informative, and  entertaining channels of news, views and information about China around now, and we’ll be listing our ‘best of’ China in due course! Here: Best China Info on YouTube is a good start for our ‘Best of China’ blogs articles and posts.

  1. Hello Bro,
    Have to say I like your site(?) and with all of the China hate currently flying around the ‘western’ media this is needed. I loved China when I was there and my experiences relayed to you ‘may’ have had some influence on your actions. I do know that when you asked me if you should go I gave you an unequivocal yes. And now…. I am very jealous, wish I was back there instead of here in Australia.
    Btw you should have a like button on your site 🙂
