What's on Weibo
September is a month of ends and new beginnings. As a new semester has started, freshmen across China leave their hometowns to start a new life at university. For parents who find it hard to say goodbye, many Chinese universities set up tent camps outside the dorms. We wrote about these so-called “tents of love” (and were also featured in this radio interview / in Dutch).
September is also a new start for China’s most popular taxi-hailing app Didi Chuxing, as it has now acquired Uber China. Since the merge, prices have been rising, and passengers are not happy. Read all about the story of Didi, why its prices are going up, and how Chinese consumers are responding in our latest premium article (try it out, click-and-pay article platform Blendle gives you the first articles for free).
It is also a new beginning for China’s most favorite Japanese athlete Ai Fukuhara, and this 73-year-old model Huang Yanzhen shows that it is never too late to try something new. 
Best,
