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.

... out and we all clapped in gratitude for the excellent dinner. He was tickled at the acknowledgement. The next morning I found that the anniversary couples had each received a dozen red roses and another cake in their room. One of the two ladies was teary eyed when sharing what had happened. This particular couple had never traveled in a group before and for their 50th anniversary to receive this attention was beyond ...
... and the river is calm and tranquil. We got to the beginning of the stairs and took some photos at the large Chinese inscription of Diao Yu Cheng. Then we started climbing. Half way up heavy breathing was breaking through Emiko and Mitseru’s smiles. There is a temple at this point and it’s a bit of a resting stop. Mitseru asked how much more I told him we were about half way. He laughed and said we should head back down. I felt really bad. I had Paul ask the lady at the ...
... on the street, but this man was actually relatively nice and pretty fun, so I gave him some yuan. He left very quickly after that. I have no idea if he actually will actually use that money to go to Sichuan, but he was pretty old and seemed to have been through quite a bit, so I deviated from what I usually do. Anyways didn’t write a word of my blog that day.
On Saturday morning, one six of my students and one friend (who is a student, but not mine) took me to a ...
