      Clothing manufacturers

      Guangzhou Jul 27, 2015 at 6:08 AM

      Hi everyone, will be staying in Guangzhou for ten days in August for manufacturing purposes. Can anyone suggest a Caucasian travel guide as I have trouble working with guides that have turned out to be "insiders" working closely with the manufacturers. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

      Walking around West Lake

      Hangzhou Jul 27, 2015 at 1:49 PM


      I do not know how to ride a bike so I plan to walk around West Lake. I would be there in early January. I know the lake is large and has a lot of small paths that deviate from the general trail around the lake. How long would it take for a leisurely walk around the lake?

      I like to take photos. Which side of the lake is the most scenic, especially during sunrise and sunset?


    • Yanji day tours?

      Yanji Jul 21, 2015 at 7:19 AM

      Wondering if anyone knows of any day tours for Yanji and surrounding region in China.
      I'm going in October - but the city is literally an 'add-on' to a bigger tour.
      Hence, the requirement for a day trip only.
      My research suggests only buses and cabs to get around.
      Yet the best attractions/scenery appear to be out of town.
      Any one have any advice/experience re. this?
      Many thanks :)

    • Jiuzhaigou Region in April

      Jiuzhaigou Jul 23, 2015 at 5:34 PM

      We have been told that March to April is low season in Jiuzhaigou. Only 5 star and several 4 stars hotels are open. The others will be closed to the end of April. Also there is only basic service in the area.

      Is it still possible to go to Jiuzhaigou region in April (2016) or is it better to go later in the year? We know that the walking tracks may be closed but is it still possible to get public buses to/from the park area and are they regular? Also do the buses within the park still run?

    • Hostel or Hotel near Jing'an College

      Shanghai Jul 18, 2015 at 8:13 AM

      Hello dear travellers,

      My fiancée is in Shanghai at the moment to take a language class at the Shanghai Jing'an College, 601 Jiaozhou Rd, Jing'an, Shanghai. She still needs a place to stay, where she can sleep and study. Can anyone recommend a hostel or hotel or anything alike that is close to the college, or at least easy to get there?

      And it should be cheap enough to afford a one month stay.

      Thank you very much for your effort.

      Connecting from Suzhou to Wuzhen and from Wuzhen to Hangzhou.

      Wuzhen Jul 7, 2015 at 10:57 PM


      I am wondering which way is the easiest going from Suzhou to Wuzhen. Should I take the bus directly from Suzhou to Wuzhen or should I take the high speed train from Suzhou to Tongxiang and than transfer to a bus to Wuzhen? How long would it take by bus and by train and bus?

      Is there a bus from Wuzhen to Hangzhou? Should I, instead, take the bus from Wuzhen to Tongxiang and then take the high speed train from Tongxiang to Hangzhou?

      Thank you

    • Issuing Tibet traveling permits in Kathmandu

      Tibet Jul 6, 2015 at 5:49 AM

      Hi, Does any one know how long will it take to issue all the required permits for Tibet trekking through an Kathmandu agency? I plan to find a traveling agency to do the arrangements once I get to Kathmandu (September 2015) and was wandering how long will it take. If I understood correctly, the Tibet entry permit takes about 3 days to issue (with some extra costs), but the trek i want to do also requires an Alien’s Travel Permit, which i'm not sure can be issued so fast...

      Thanks! Miriam

      Guangzhuo to Dali Travel

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Mar 31, 2012 at 12:25 AM

      My travel plans are so far this : Arrive Shanghai, explore Shaoxing and vicinity, train to Guangzhou, onward either to Guilin and the terraces OR to Dali in Yunnan. it looks a beautiful place but its more travelling.

      Trains are not direct either so how much would it cost to fly ? i would go about 5th October for 4 days

      What travel options are there between Dali (Yunnan) and Myanmar (Burma)?

      by alwloch Online Now Sep 11, 2007 at 10:59 PM

      I will be heading toward Dali in late October and understand the best time to visit Myanmar and all its Buddhist pagodas is after November. There is only one hostel in the entire country, located in Yagon (Rangoon), as far as I am aware of. Also there is a train but I don't know whether it reaches as far as China or Thailand. Would anyone know the various ways a backpacker could enter Myanmar from Yunnan?

      We are considering these guesthouses/hostels ...can anybody tell me whether they have twin rooms with own bathroom (& western style toilet) that have some kind of HEATING (any other advice on Dali accomodation welcome):

      1. Dali mingtong yingxian hotel, Cai Cun village ...webpage on, but doesn't mention heating.
      2. No 3 Guesthouse (has Korean & Chinese webpage but no English)
      3. Dali Siji (4 Seasons) Inn has webpage on - says Air-conditioning....that means heating in the winter?
