Most hotels have karaoke facilities where guests can take to the microphone and belt out classics. The Dali Recreational Centre on Central Jianshe Road, Xiaguan is a popular choice. These are where businessmen and groups of friends go to express themselves and are considered a guaranteed good night. You can sing privately in a booth or serenade the rest of the club.

A word of warning: the Chinese are not shy about singing and will insist that you sing. If you do not want to sing, you can say, “Wo bu hui chang ge” (I cannot sing).
