When you land at a Chinese airport, you follow a little car with a flashing sign that says 'follow me' to a parking spot out on the tarmac somewhere, where they bring out one of those little mobile sets of stairs for you to disembark. You then cram on a bus which drives you to the main building at the airport. Sometimes the bus also drives you to the plane you are getting on as well, sometimes you get on the plane directly at the gate.
Also, every airport I stopped at has scarecrows. What is that about? They don't tell wind direction, or hold signs, or point directions, or scare away birds, so does anybody have any idea about that?
