Man tell me about it! I'm going there for the first time and am worried about such incidents. Being Vietnamese by descent doesn't help either I hear. My uncle went to visit a few years back and was harassed by customs... until he HAD to bribe them so that he wouldn't miss his return flight.

I went to China 2 years ago and that was an interesting experience. The average ordinary citizen is even afraid to speak up about their government. Everyone I talked to seemed to have the exact same rehearsed opinion. "The government is great and WE love China!" more or less sums up what they said.

Anyways, for my camera kit I'm really trying to think if I should get something more expensive (camera body upgrade) or just go with the 16-45 and the 55-300 and augment that with the DAL 35 f/2.4 carrying my K100D Super...

P.S. No offense taken :-) Not a fan of the govt. there either...
anywhere you go, there's always risk involved so the only advise i can give you all is be careful. guard all your properties with your life. never leave anything unattended. hold on to your wallet, passport or any valuable things as if your life is on the line. this goes to any place actually. be it asia, usa or europe. you never know.
