In beijing, I can buy a cup of watered-down soybean milk or a steamed stuffed bun or a bus ticket or a bottle of water............



The equivalent of one U.S.$  buys me one apple, a subway ticket for an ultra short distance trip (max 2 stops), some cup noodles and it is even not enough for a can of ice coffee or ice tea.

Are they as cheap as a bottle of water? What kind of hair clip can you buy?

Yes, as cheap as a bottle of water. Can buy plain black/colourful pins and even cute ones.

Can buy many things with $1 in Singapore. I don't know about other countries.
