Travel Blogs from Guangzhou
Well arrived in Guangzhou ok. My pickup was 30 minutes late to the airport. I was started to get a bit worried. But at10am they showed up. Traffic accident or something held them up.....I had so many nice people come up and offer me a taxi...The inquiry desk wasn't helpful and they wanted me to do was buy a SIM card... Its been raining on or off …
Have you ever heard the song 'Slow Boat to China'? Well, a similar song could be written about the slow banking system in China.
This was my second visit to the bank; the first being three days ago to request a new bank card because my previous had been swallowed up by the ATM – not my fault and another story! I was told it would take three working days to get a new card, which is fair enough but actually the bank cards sit in the ...
... 8217;t belong to me now; I am just a visitor. It is
different when you live somewhere compared to when you just visit. My visit
will be over on Wednesday and I will go back to Nepal; I wonder if I will find
a sense of belonging there? I bet I don’t find a Hooleys!
You couldn’t find a much starker contrast between Guangzhou
and Kathmandu. Guangzhou is modern, bright, brash, clean ...
Hello from Guangzhou! I apologize in advance for the long post. I promise that they won't all be like this. Out last few days have been quite busy with sightseeing, so there is much to talk about. After 13.5 hours in the air, over 10,400 kms traveled, and approximately 5 minutes of proper sleep on the plane we finally arrived in China. Only two complaints can be made about the flight. First, anything beyond 8 hours spent cooped up in a plane is a cruel and unusual punishment. I ...
... see anything. No pandas anywhere!! I had a gut feeling this would happen, that this was not meant to be my first viewing of a Panda, time. Pandas and penguins in one long trip is too exciting and big for one long trip. To see my two favourite animals would be pushing my luck. Then we realized that in the centre of the open air enclosure was a glass enclosure, and there two Panda's were eating lunch, bamboo shoots. In the distance yes, behind a barrier or glass certainly...... ...

It is a great hotel. Very clean, no musty smell as others had said in reviews I had read.. I have wiff in my room which has a strong connection.
The view is great. there are plenty of complimenary things including 2 bottles of water. I think the hotel is fine, room service is a bit slow but then it's lunchtime and they are probably very busy as the restaurant certainly was packed when I walked by.
The food is great and filling.. I would certainly stay here again.
While I make fun of the fire extinguisher and respirator in the wardrobe and the torch on the wall, this hotel obviously takes safety seriously, which if there was a fire it is good to know that I do have a chance of escaping.
Overall, considering I have seen little of the hootel, I like it.
