Travel Blogs from Shenzhen
We left Guangzhou in the late afternoon. Although it was a nice hotel we were happy to leave. The staff was becoming somewhat annoying. When checking out we had one of our rooms till 4 o'clock, but the maid starting cleaning the bathroom when we opened the door to put our bags outside for the bell hop. The communication barrier has been an issue through out the trip, it would have honest taken the extra half-an-hour (aside form ...
