    Of course, when you're in one of the major epicenters of Asian cuisine, go for the Golden Arches. It's a no-brainer.

    Thanks all - Nic China was a surprise for the number of new skyscrapers and freeway systems. The Nagasaki A bomb museum was sobering and the 430 km/hr MagLev train in Shanghai was an experience to remember.
