China gets Barbadian Area Code wrong – still thinks of Caribbean Isle as 809

809 is now the Area code for the Dominican Republic and has been that way for quite some time now, the Bajan Area Code was chosen as it spells out B-I-M as in the nickname for Barbados… But not if you visit this Chinese travel info website?

Ambassador: YANG
Zhikuan Address of Chinese Embassy: NO.17, GOLF VIEW TERRACE, GOLF CLUB ROAD,
CHRIST CHURCH, BARBADOS Telephone Numbers: Tel:
+1-809-4356890 Fax: +1-809-4358300 Email Address: CHINESEEMBBDS@CARIBSURF.COM Website: Consulate of China: Embassy of Barbados in China:

As you see, apart from the wrong Area Code, there is no website listed for their Consulate, and I do not think the name of the Ambassador is not correct either! How obsolete can you get? After all the visits the other day, we’re not worth getting it right for posterity’s sake?
