... feeling that the reforms have let the genie out of the bottle, there is no way it will go back in, a bit worrying. That's enough home spun politics from us, what about the sights? You can't come to China without visiting the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Shanghai and the Terracotta Army. We travelled out of season so with the exception of the Forbidden City all the others were easy to visit and straight forward. The same could be said for all the other sights we visited in each ...
... to take a bite!). It is great that this new found wealth is being spent in China on Chinese made goods (all be it branded Nike or Volkswagen) and services, the real worry is the millions supposedly being transferred out of the country by the very rich elite. It was also noticeable today a little bit of friction between the pool attendant who was male and about 25 and a group of male Chinese of the same age who were staying as guests. The attendant made ...
... taken just over 2800 so with a bit of happy snapping over the next four days we could reach 3000! In the old days of 35mm film you thought you had done well to use three rolls of 36 pictures. A short calculation tells me that it will take four hours to watch all the pictures, with a bit of luck it will deter any of our children coming home for a while. Interestingly though the two Canadians had a completely different take on Mongolia and Ulan Bator, they hated it. So if, following ...
... several big boulders along a small brook. Really a nice little hike.
We did it in flipflops though I recommend to take trainers if you want to avoid complaints of your wife about sore foot soles from the *********e for the whole day.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott Yalong Bay Resort & Spa Sanya
I traveled from Haikou with my 3 children (16,12,10) t Sanya by train. Had booked the Marriott for it's location and from reviews. I had booked a room on Agoda and clicked on a 2 bed room. When we arrived our reservation was for 1 King bed. Front desk fixed the problem and "upgraded" us to a sea view room. Cannot for the life of me understand why an American chain would only put in double beds instead of Queen. If they really want Sanya to become the "Hawaii of China" foreign chains need to realize foreigners want a normal size bed. Hotel's main restaurant is under construction- not listed on web site but at the Crown Plaza hotel there is a center full of places to eat. It is an 8RMB taxi ride maybe 1.5 miles up the road.
Hotel is nice and looks like they are upgrading areas (main restaurant). Would be nice if there was A/C in public areas - lobby and breakfast rooms are very warm.
Beach is lovely and the pool is great.
