      Travel agent or book myself for domestic flights and river cruise?

      China Dec 25, 2016 at 8:43 PM

      We will be in Shanghai in early June 2017 and would like to do a Yangtze River cruise from Yichang to Chongqin then fly to Xian for a couple of days then fly back to Shanghai again. Is it feasible to book this myself or does this need to be done through a travel agent and be on a private tour?
      I figure we don't need a tour guide while on the cruise, but is it easy enough to get from end of cruise in Chongqin to airport with maybe a quick look around or trip to the zoo if I just organise a guide/driver myself?

      Has anyone here booked a tour in China?

      China Dec 20, 2016 at 3:54 PM

      I'm planning a big trip to China next year (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and maybe a few others) and I want to book either one big tour or a few smaller tours. I don't know whether to book a private tour (which costs more) or a group tour? I don't think I want to be on a tour bus full of people but am aware of the costs of private tours. I don't think I can travel in this region without a guide, especially as I have zero language skills.

      Has anyone had any experience with this? What should I look out for or be concerned about? I'm not really sure where to start.

      Also, does anyone know any good value places to book tours? Is it better to wait until i'm there and find them or book from an agent here?? Any help welcome!

    • Business trip and gifts

      by NiteLux Online Now Jan 31, 2016 at 11:41 AM


      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
