Had trouble with the plumbing at 3 am one morning, but it was fixed in about 1/2 hr. A hose disconnected itself from behind the shower unit and was spraying hot water all around the bathroom. Actually we seemed to be the only people staying in the place and it was 28 stories high. We never saw anyone except for the security guard, cleaner and the plumber who came to fix the bathroom problem. The apartment was big, lounge, bathroom, dining room, kitchen & bedroom with marvellous views.
Not a 5 star place but certainly 3.5 - 4 star. Furniture a little old, but comfortable. Carpet old but clean. Mattress hard (as most Chinese hotels are). Location excellant, walking distance to shops and restaurants.

We then visited a pearl manufacturing shop - we enjoyed learning about the harvesting process and having a look (and for some, a shop) around the display room.
Lunch today was at the Chinese restaurant San Shuijan. Was a banquet style with plenty of delicious (and interesting) dishes.
A 45 min drive took us to the Summer Palace - a beautiful day to explore such a beautiful place. Us along with thousands of ...
... station everywhere, the shop in the station selling every kind of coloured sweet known to man and the change in infrastructure was clear to see. What did surprise me was how easy it was to get into China. Non of the usual sniffer dogs and bag kickers that I experienced crossing the Russian border....no...just check my passport and off you go. I was surprised to say the least given the reputation of China.
We whistled past small villages, mountains, lakes, temples on the ...
... and plants of all colours and sizes. There is even a large waterfall in the back. Our guide speaks with the lady standing at the front and we are shown to our table. Again, we are separated from the locals and segregated in the "tour" area, and we are the only ones there. The food has been pre-ordered and comes out quickly. Kung Pao chicken, eggplant something (it was very good), sprouts and glass noodles in a wrap, and fruit. Everything was delicious. We now have ...
... was all very enjoyable. The Summer Palace is our next stop so we climb back into the car and are sped away. Literally, our driver is a speeder. I don't think he goes anywhere slowly (or safely, but I'll get to that). We wander through the gardens with the bank of the man made lake on one side and the Empress's covered walkway on the other. Walking and chatting we end up at our embarkation point to take a boat in the form of a dragon back to ...
