Well, thats it, as you are reading this we are heading to the airport to fly back to the sunny UK (weather may have been fantastic in the UK but think of all the experiences in China!). It has been a fantastic holiday if not a little tiring at times, we have seen a little snapshot of China in a few weeks, definitely wanting more.
There is some places I would recommend, Shanghai, Beijing and Xian personally being highlights for me. There is culture, city living and ease of access in all of these cities. The culture is very different, Shanghai as the upstart modern skyscraper city, Beijing as the cultural and political heart of China and Xian steeped in history with the Terracotta warriors and city wall.
Most of all I would say come here, experience it and you will be amazed…
This holiday has been great but there are some problems…
First the delay from Shanghai to Chengdu with east China airways was 4 hours.
Secondly the food, the food isn’t great here and there are some really disgusting things such as the tofu hot pot in Chengdu I had half a bowl of it then later that night got a burger from room service.
Then there was the “Chicken” it was strange because it was just a tiny bit of meat on a huge bone in batter later the next day we found out it was Chicken feet
I ate Chicken feet!!!!!!!!!
As well as some bad things there has been lots of good things like the hotel in Xi’an some of the food is really nice the Terracotta warriors were amazing, the perl tower was great Shanghai was great all together.
All the guides have been great so far but the best was Helen she was so nice and helpful.
There is one more problem that we are all so tired because we have so much to do in the day and not enough sleep!
So at Edinburgh airport checked in and waiting for our flight to London.
Then off to Shanghai, a rest day when we arrive and then the tour actually begins. Now that I have looked at the itinerary I am slightly concerned this isn’t a holiday!
