Just be really careful in making sure you understand the menu and prices 
properly. I got into a tea shop near Tianemen square, and a really tiny 
cup of tea costed 50 Yuan, i.e. € 6, and I took a whole "tea ceremony", 
in the belief that the menu said the whole ceremony would cost 50 Yuan, 
which would have been a reasonable price. Beijing deeply disappointed 
me, and you have to be very careful, and trust no-one. It was not at 
all like that further west in China, where I spent most of my time.
