... I ask. Yes, but far from the hand of Beijing, Jinghong does not feel like the Middle Kingdom at all. With the Changmai T-shirts for sale, perhaps there's no need to make the trek to China's neighbour after all. (ha!) Leave the city and (try to) lose yourself among the jungles and monkeys. Chat with a ...
... Good ole USA-still my favorite. I spent the night with my friend, Megan. As it turns out, I gave her bronchitis which I'd brought unwittingly from China. I've apologized. She's forgiven me.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDalian Hotel Jinghong
