What’s on Weibo — New Beginnings
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.

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).
