      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!

      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?

      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??
