Though we may have been difficult customers for this hotel - asking repeatedly for IT assistance, and green tea for breakfast, a.o. - we found the service to be impeccable. The staff's English was extraordinary by Chinese measures. Our standard double room was spacious and well-equipped, and we liked being able to watch BBC News. Booked through Elong.net, room prices were very reasonable. We highly recommend the Food Corner at the back of the hotel.
All in all, excellent place to stay in Lanzhou.

We then headed off to Bar Street where they advertised 12 beers for 200 yuan (a bargain at $30!!). The bars pumped with Asian dance music and entertainers specialising in ...

Okay, the geography lesson is over. We could see where the cable car was and we headed off in that direction.
Because some of the group started taking photo's every 5 steps, Jase and myself soon found ourselves out in front and we ended up leaving the others behind. After about 25 minutes we reached the cable car station. But, ...
... This was great for me as i had a
woman who owned her own business in Shanghai to talk to about things to
do there and a father, grandfather and young daughter family to play
cards with and break down any language barriers.
By morning we
were in Shanghai and the first thing visible (other than even more
Chinese people) was the expo advertisements. After walking around the
outside of the train station and trying to get our bearings, ...
