    • Optometry shops close for C New Year?

      Guangzhou Feb 4, 2016 at 2:54 AM

      I will be in Guangzhou Feb. 9->11. I need to get 2-3 prescription eyeglasses made for my mum while I am passing though during the big holiday. It is only 4/2 and here in Malaysia glasses shops tell me it will take a week to get product. So impossible.

      Bifocals apparently are the issue, they don't keep stock in this small town.

      Will I be able to fulfill this order at height of CNY within 3 days?

      Apparently a full week of CNY in Malaysia is like several festivals in Cambodia where the whole country shuts down commercial activity. However the rest of the year I get glasses within 2 hours or overnight at latest.

      Will it be any different in Guangzhou?

    • Business trip and gifts

      Foshan Jan 31, 2016 at 11:41 AM

      Hi

      Im going to Foshan in Feb for a business trip to meet a factory owner and his work force its a small factory under 20 people.I have been buying and communicating with the manger for 24 months but now need to take a trip to tie down some finer points of our relationship

      I want to take some gift for the manager and then for his work force .. Would it be a good idea to take an expensive bottle of whiskey and some exclusive cigars for example for the manager and perhaps some equisite biscuits or short bread for the employees ..

      I understand there must be a difference in the money value of the gift from one rank to another and to wrap in red utilizing silver and gold braid for example.

      Ive never been to China before I Im a little apprehensive of selecting the right gift for the right purpose can any one give advice or have personal experience in this matter

      Thanks

      Paul

      What's With Zhanjiang?

      by darrensmale Online Now Apr 26, 2007 at 1:10 PM

      Hi. I'm intriqued with the interest in Zhanjiang. Every time I've been (admitedly only 6 times) the only other foreigners I have ever seen were my two friends (apart from the US Navy who graced the place with there presence once). I go there because that is where my wife is from (well Naozhou Island which is just off the coast at DongHao). What reason brings you to Zhanjiang? Interested that's all.

      Regards

      Can't get to the city by plane? Or is their airport for 10 seater prop jobs? I found this: Crowne Plaza Hotel Zhanjiang Info/Book 31 le Shan DA Dao ZHANJIANG Located in the Economic Development Zone of Zhanjiang. It is the best selection for you with the garden and waterfall lobby, deluxe entertainment facilities and comfortable rooms, warm and caring service suitable for business and leisure travellers. Only 5-minute drive to shopping centre, 10-minute drive from Zhanjiang airport, and 15-minute drive from train station to Crowne Plaza Zhanjiang. 208 rooms

    • Costs?

      by TheLaird Online Now Mar 21, 2004 at 11:18 AM

      I have tried to look into booking hotels here just to get a feel for the money needs I would have. No joy! And wouldn't it be just as cheap to go to HK? Trying to find real specific details of the city is a b*tch! Halp!!

      ONLINE AIRFARE TO ZHANJIANG

      by Romantic14u2c Online Now Aug 15, 2003 at 7:04 PM

      I keep trying to book online reservations to Zhanjiang from LAX in November 2003, (via Guangzhou or Hong Kong), but finding a big Online Broker (i.e. Orbitz, Travelocity, Cheaptickets, Hotwire, and a host others) that has these routes are nearly impossible. The odd thing is that I can get a Round-trip ticket for either LAX-Guangzhou or Hong Kong, yet I cannot seem to complete the itinerary (unless I want to pay through the nose) to Zhanjiang. I know darn well that China Southern Airlines has the complete itinerary and service, but yet no Broker seems to have an agreement for the last segment to Zhanjiang. Booking direct with China Southern directly or by Broker for routes all the way to Zhanjiang seems almost impossible and is very frustrating, especially for those of us in the U.S.!! Any suggestions (besides a Travel Agent) to get this task done at a reasonable rate??
