We stayed for 2 nights in what was booked as a standard room, but we thought it was a pretty high 'standard' - more like deluxe or better. the hotel is on the huge man-made Jin Ming Lake & our room & balcony overlooked this and the hotel's swimming pools. A picture window separated the bedoom & bathroom, which had a big bath, separate shower area and a separate loo. A cute pot-pourie doll was hanging on the bathrobes. Free daily paper (Mandarin version on our first night), turndown service & tomorrow's weather forecast - all delivered with a friendly smile but no English, which was limited throughout the hotel.
The restaurant overlooks the lake and swimming pools and private areas are available in the warmer seasons. There was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast and even though the emphasis was on Chinese dishes we found plenty to please us. The lobby bar only seemed to serve cakes and coffee, and light meals/snacks and wine were scarce in the restaurant, but this may have been due to our lack of communication skills. It was certainly not because of the wonderful, friendly service of the staff who really wanted to please the only Westerners in the hotel. We were very happy with this classy hotel.

... for noodles. I don't know if eating a donkey is right or wrong, but it was delicious anyway. I don't think I'd do it again though. The restaurant was way out of the way in a run down part of town. It seemed like it wasn't worth the effort. I can get regular beefsoup on any street corner.
My host brought me to the bus after we ate the soup and we caught it just as it was leaving. Zhuxian is about 45 ...
... I leave.
There were performances going on as you went around and lots of places where you could dress up and get your picture taken.
By this time, it was getting on in the afternoon and a few of us were going to leave earlier. I still wanted to go to the Iron Pagoda. Ginger, Alex and I separated from the group and caught a cab to the pagoda.The pagoda is made of glazed bricks that look the colour of iron. It has 13 layers in an octogon shape. It rises to about ...
... lots of leg room, it even had air conditioning. The 40minutes flew by before we knew it we had arrived. Having no idea where our hostel was we jumped in a taxi. Kaifeng clearly doesn’t get many foreigners as everyone shouted "hello" through the taxi’s windows. As we pulled up to what I thought was our hostel Oliver came clean and told me that he hadn’t booked a hostel but he had booked a lovely hotel. This came as a huge shock as I had prepared ...
... puts her legs over her head so that she can smell her own feet, is spun around on a rotating table, and finally plates and bowls are stacked on her head. She's going to make some man very happy one day. But, all of these "historical recreations" are simply backdrop for the real show. Now, when Mike, Marta and I went to the park last fall we did not see the special night show because it was so expensive. However, this time Henan University picked up the ...
... did not know what the special products are in this place. So I did not buy any souvenir today. We went dinner after the brief visit of this strange city. The cuisine was different from HK. The way to cook fish there was having deep fried and put some sweet and sour sauce on. The main carbohydrates intake of them is not rice, but gMoh --- a steam bun. And the soup was a surprise to us as that was sweet and quite dense, even a spoon can flow on it. Sam Leung has given out ...
