... every night was booked in advance so it is surprising that it all went so well. China and Mongolia are places we will come back to, Siberia was great, did I mention Lake Baikel, and the train journey from Moscow to Beijing was great fun. Now it is back to reality via three flights and a UK train ride which won't be anywhere as good as those in China. It will take a few weeks to sort out the pictures then we can start dreaming of where to go next, perhaps somewhere with a nice cup of ...
... from the bad idea of having an electrical connection to the toilet seat what happens if the water gets too hot, or cold? The shock could kill someone and whilst I won't go into details it did not do as good a job as two sheets of loo paper. So that's quite enough of toilet talk - although we are only 500 miles further south than Guilin, our last location, the climate is much warmer and more humid. It feels just like the Caribbean although the sand ...
... taken and then stood at the podium for individual pictures. After this our van headed for Jadebelt Beach, which is unique because it has the river on one side and the sea on the other. We took a boat out there, got off and were hit with a tropical storm. I mean the rain came down hard. There were maybe 100 people on the beach and three tarps. So everybody ran for the tarps. Our group all had umbrellas but the rain ...
Hainan is Belinda's hometown. It is an island in the South China Sea and is called the 'Hawaii of the East'. It's not industrial, but profits from agriculture and tourism.

TravelPod Member ReviewsXinglong Treasure Island Hotspring Hotel Wanning
We arrived simultaneously with a large tour group but went up to a lady who turned out to be the assistant manager. I think I spoke more Chinese there than she or anyone else spoke English. Still, she got us our reserved room, at the C-trip rate, on our Hunan Debit Card, with a 700 RMB deposit. We stayed in Villa #3 and bellhops carried our bags out for us. We had to access Internet in their business office, using their computer, at 4 yuan/hour. They had an English menu (1) and the food was nice. The grounds are beautiful and there's a golf driving range and green. We rented 2 bikes for an hour, at 15 yuan each, taken out of our deposit. The biggest disappointment, other than communications, was no hot springs, sauna or any such thing, as advertised. I just saw this review was the 3rd Google hit under "Xinlong, Hainan hotels." If you're reading this, and you want to go to Xinlong, knowing what we know, we'd have stayed at the Old Banyan Hotel for about 435 yuan a night, but real luxury! Le Meridien, on Shimei Bay, may be nicer, but 3x the cost.
