Starbucks in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on February 11, 2011

I don’t care for Starbucks, but I love their coffee. In China a Starbucks for the Chinese is a place to :
a- meet foreigners
b-try to get a free English lesson
c-try to act different from the other 1 300 000 000 people who are exactly like you
d- try to act western

In addition, the Starbucks at Guomao SOHO is a total meat market and the one at Yonganlie by the silk market is a dump.
