Travelling is about freedom. Why should anyone follow rules of other people for his/her personal travel plans? Nah... I pretty much appreciate any hints or tips but final decision is made by the traveller.

We must have been out of the tourist areas quite often. Most of the restaurant menus did not have English.

Shanghei and Beijing don't have English signs? Absolutely false.

Next time I'm in China I'll take pictures of road signs, subway signs, etc. in English.

When someone goes to somewhere a lot that means they really like it there, its a pretty simple thing to figure out really lol.

Yes, that's precisely why once I found mangos were delicious, I never ate any other fruits in my life!

Which island should I go in the Caribbeans this winter? Time to think about it again.

This is the response of someone who is ignorant of the fact that there are many varieties of mangoes and while they do have some things is common they also have their unique properties that could make them enjoyable or horrible. For some people the enjoyment they get is from experiencing those differences and trying to find the mango that encompasses everything they like about the fruit.
