They couldn't find out reservation via Agoda, but more than made up for it by placing us in one regular room and one executive room. The executive room is all you could ask for. Great layout, big TV, roomy closet with a safe and everything you could need or want.
The other room, however, was below par. Ignoring the ugly soviet era decor, the bathroom stank of raw sewage. This is not unusual for Lanzhou, since anywhere you go has whiffs of sewage and all public (and almost all private) bathrooms smell the same. But we expected more from a five star hotel. We would have changed rooms but they were full.
Besides that, the beds were very comfortable and the staff were prompt and attentive. We could always speak to someone who spoke english eventually. The breakfast buffet was above average. There is a great gym and pool. You can even get a fruit plate if you don't use the disposable bathroom products, and you can request one of a dozen different pillows so you sleep sweetly.

People sat by the temple silently and watched the sun sink, after the sun went down they left to ...

On the first leg of our bus ride from Xiahe to Lanzhou, there were three men crammed into the bus's small loading area where the stairs onto the bus are. There was a folding seat there, and two men shared it. One sat on the seat while the other sat on his friend's lap. To protect his friend from sliding around, the man sitting on the seat circled his arms around ...
Left Dali yesterday, and I have to say that Dali is one place that I will consider going back. It is pretty, very chill out and the food is very good. From the bagels at No 88 bakery to the Indian food at nameste, everything I have eaten in Dali is just so good. It is small enough without much traffic so that I can bike around the town. People are relatively friendly and given time, I could do a lot hiking and who knows, even rock climbing! The only complaint I have is the ...
