English teacher and education adviser. China needs a teaching profession with less fear and more trust and honesty.

Patience and humour.... I have to remind myself each day whilst in China. So much done in so few years, yet I could do so much more here if I could speak chinese!

    Blonde Amber: "It could be something to do with 'face' or the fact that allowing foreigners in requires a licence that they can not afford."

    But you said "Thankfully not arrested"?  Why should a foreigner be arrested if the hotel is not great or doesn't have the special license? And the original blogger said "I could have been arrested at any time."  For visiting waterfalls and caves?  Doesn't China want to encourage its tourism industry?

    Gayle: What is the reason that some hotels and motels would say "NOT FOR FOREIGNERS"?  I can understand if a place has military activities going on ...
    5 star hotels in China are usually of about (at best) 4 star standard or less in Europe.

    my research has found that the hotels in China that refuse foreigners are usually of 3 star (local) standard or lower.
    It could be something to do with 'face' or the fact that allowing foreigners in requires a licence that they can not afford.
