Today we decided to venture out to one of the four most famous Buddhist mountains in China, Emei Shan. We had to take a bus from Chengdu to the town of Emei, which took about 2.5hrs. We woke up pretty early to catch the bus, but couldn't get a taxi during rush hour, so we decided to walk to the bus station!! It took a good hour... but it was a nice …
Well where to start! We woke up pretty early this morning so we could find a taxi and get to the Panda Research Base by around 8am when it opened. The Giant Pandas are most active during feeding between 8-10am so it was best we got there as early as we could. Every website and book I searched in said that the bus would be too complicated but a taxi …
After a brief stay in Kunming, Yunnan Province to rest and pick up some warmer clothes we headed on to Chengdu, Sichuan Province, home of the Giant Panda.
We arrived in Chengdu exhausted after a very loud and long (20 hour) sleeping train from Kunming. Our sleeping compartment had us and 3 Chinese people in it all of whom can snore louder …
... 160; I seem to have gotten the hard line working again...however, I believe our wireless is a no go. So we will just share the computer and use the wireless down in the lobby when we are in the area. She and I are both getting tired of the same breakfast here at the hotel so we bought so bananas at the store and some of our travel buddies brought Cliff bars that they have shared. ...

o You would think it would be easy for a Chinese woman to find a ...

So far this has been my favourite hostel since being in China. I had a private twin room, with a private bathroom. Everything was very clean, there was soap and toilet paper (first time I've found both of these together!), a very nice hot shower, the most comfortable bed so far and a pretty good wifi internet connection most of the time. I liked the idea of the movie room and laundry service, even though I didn't have a chance to use them! The people that work there are very friendly and speak English very well, and the little restaurant/cafe they have had a good variety and some really good food! (I recommend the Sichaun noodles!). It was in a good location, about a 40 minute walk to the bus station or a cheap taxi ride to the train station. If I was ever in Chengdu again, I would definitely stay here! Thanks!
