I'm an ex-pat Englishman living in Los Angeles. I'm travelling alone to Hong Kong next weekend (April 27) then flying or taking the train to Beijing to meet up with some ex-pat friends. I'll probably stay just the weekend in Hong Kong but stay most of my trip in Beijing. It's sort of flexible at this point, except I have 3 weeks of travel total.
So my question is, where would be some good places to meet sociable people, to drink, dance and chat. I'll be going out Friday, Saturday, and maybe Sunday nights. Or I might leave Sunday for Beijing. I don't have anything booked yet.
If anybody would like to make suggestions or meet up, that would be fantastic. I'm open to all ideas but I do like to dance a lot, so nightlife is my thing and maybe some hiking or sporting thing during the day. I'm not much interested in shopping or museums.
thanks in advance,
