Flew with Hainan Airlines (a Chinese outfit). Seated by an emergency exit on the plane. On purpose? Had to be able to understand the instructions in Chinese or English. I could!!! So could the bloke on the other side of the aisle – he was British too. So I went all the way across Russia without meeting a single westerner, then am seated next …
Thoroughly enjoyed the great sleeping/showering arrangement, but up early as full program in my honour. Breakfast with a stressed Ming (lots of not so familiar food – buffet, so easy to find something I liked.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Ministry of Education Hotel Beijing
Provided by the Ministry of Education as I am on a teacher exchange program, so not chosen myself. Location is brilliant as it is right next to AFS's offices (part of the MOE), and just along from Tiananmen Square.
