... Terracotta Warriors. Hope the hotel in Xian as good as this one in Chengdu. One strange thing - we have barley pillows. Yes, pillows full of barley grains. Suppose these are therapeutic in some way! I wonder if they go in the washing machine? What a disaster if they do and one split! Luckily a normal "gluten free" pillow on the top. Still not got the hang of entering places visited on this blog and have pressed some we didn't go to. Fat Fingers again! J and ...
... on the executive deck, instead of the main dining room. That is a nice accommodation for us OAT passengers. According to our guide, with so many Chinese tourists on board, when the dining room opens they all charge in, jostling for food. This is part of the culture of always being first. Our meals will still be buffet, but we will be sharing the eating area with about 50 people.
It is almost time to head down the ...
... ethnic buildings, and several examples of their culture. This included a performance of a courtship ritual in costume. Later that day we disembarked again for a closer look at the dam, the largest hydro electric project in the world. After a performance of Chinese costumes & customs through the ages, our boat travelled through the massive lock system to get to the other side of the dam wall. Tuesday morning ...
... sites of Chong Qing. We didn't have much time here, but the streets were really lovely and not overly crowded. Crazily enough, there was a Walmart though....this did NOT excite me, it more surprised me that they had reached China already! It was an interesting shop in there with produce at our fingertips and the American Snickers bar plentifully available.
Enjoy Chong Qing for all it is - especially the famous Hot Pot. Worth every ...
... and sour chicken, fried eggs and tomatoes, among other greats. In addition, we ordered the fantastic Shancheng (mountain city) beer (budget beer, I might add) and introduced Neil to the tradition of cheers-ing in China. It is as follows: the first cheers, everyone is involved, and everyone chugs their miniature cup (about a mouthful). After that, you can only cheers one person at a time, and that person has to finish their glass, as well as yourself. Neil, realizing ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn Chongqing North
Our double room at the Holiday Inn North Chongqing looked good, but was freezing cold - something was off about the airconditioning (we didn't investigate, just turned the thing off). No wifi in the room, just a (slow) cable internet connection.
The travel center advertised in our room didn't exist, according to the receptionists, whose English was poor. When we showed them a picture of the sign in the elevator indicating that there should at least be a ticketing center on the ground floor with them, they waved us to the tea shop. There were indeed two very bored-looking staff members focusing on their computers in the tea shop. They didn't speak any English, would not book train or bus tickets, and could not help organize a small trip in or around Chongqing.
A savvy traveler will find his way in Chongqing, just don't expect much help from the Holiday Inn North.
