May 2, 2017 - Shanghai'd

April 18th (Monday) Up SO early this morning – just could not sleep. Bruce got up and turned on bright bathroom lights only to learn that it was only 5:30am – he thought it was 6:30. Anyway, we got up and went down early for breakfast – just as well. When the hairy hordes (other group tours and business people) descended on the buffet en masse like a plague of locusts we had pretty much completed our petit dejeuner by then. Out at 9am in our Big Blue Bus (BBB) and hooked up with the other 34 travellers – all Canadians. Seem like a good lot....

May 1, 2017 - China Bound

This was a two-weeks group tour to China that starts in Shanghai, then on to Suzhou, Wuxi, Hangzhou, a 4 day cruise on the Yangtze, then off to Beijing to see the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. We knew it would just give us a quick glimpse of this amazing Country but feel it's a "good start". Before getting further into this though: someone told me the photos in my blog are too small to see - I guess they didn't know to tap on the photos to enlarge them so, just in case there's anyone else out there who doesn't know. .......... 17th...

Nov 24, 2016 - Off to China

My name is Diana. My husband Marc and I booked a 12 day trip to China (our 2nd trip there) through Travel Rewards China in Canada (Nexus Holidays in the US). Though the trip was somewhat disorganized it turned out ok. We had been to China in 2008 with a company called China Spree. They were much better organized and paced the trip better. The trip was a great price so you get what you pay for. Some days were simply too long, 12 hours. It started in Shanghai and repeated a couple of places we had been on our last trip. The last 4 days were...

Nov 11, 2016 - In Shanghai

Vandaag weer een geweldige dag gehad. Eerst een wandeling door de oudste wijk van Shanghai en daarna naar de uitkijk op de 88ste verdieping van de Jinmao toren. Na de lunch naar de Franse consessiewijk met de PC Hoofdstraat van Shanghai. Wat een contrast. Rest van de middag op eigen gelegenheid de stad verkend met leuke autootjes maar ook zware schooltassen. Uiteindelijk de dag afgesloten met Shanghai by night.

Nov 10, 2016 - Van Suzhou naar Shanghai

In de ochtend naar een zijdefabriek geweest. In Thailand hadden we dit al ambachtelijk gezien maar hier gebeurt het machinaal. Toch weer anders. Vervolgens met de bus naar Sjanghai. Wow, wat een metropool, weliswaar met vreemde stoplichten maar wel een Alfa-kroeg. 's Avonds lekker on-Chinees bij McDonalds gaan eten.

Oct 28, 2016 - Shanghai

We made it back to the familar Koyal International Hotel which would be home to our group for the next two nights. The following day had no tours planned and was open for personal trips. With Sky's help we devised a plan to get going after a lazy morning to the Science Museum with a shopping complex next door leaving us to choose. We thought we would have enough time in the morning to take a walk in the nearby Gao Qiao park but only made it around the block, discovering a nearby Starbucks, Burger King and several restaurants including a...

Oct 27, 2016 - Hangzhou - Shanghai

Our stay at the MetroPark Hotel was memorable for the opulence of the lobby and the security of the building. One could not go to any other floor apart from their own assigned room floor as the elevators required a tap authorization to go up but not to go down to the lobby. While on our dinner jaunt, I noticed security tapings on all the service manhole covers and other utility access on the pavement which was in preparation for the massive security needed for the G20 summit After breakfast we convened in the grand lobby to go out on our...

12 hours and 43 minutes later we touch down in Shanghai after a flight over the top of the world. The new mapping app on the personal entertainment screens on the Dreamliner have opened the world. You can choose a cockpit or either side window view of a simulated google maps image of the landscape as well as an overlay of the flight details including attitude of the aircraft! However, after a few (complimentary) drinks, it was an effort to prop up the eyelids with even the cocktail stirsticks! Disembarkation of the fully booked flight was...

Lien à l'album photo en ligne - Link to the online photo album: https://goo.gl/photos/rAVQdd2USn26dq4f8 Nous avons laissé la grandiose nature de Zhangjiajie avec un train de 19 hrs pour Shanghai. Pour ce trajet, aucun compartiment privé pour 4 passagers de disponible. On s'embarque donc en "sleeper" de 6 passagers sans porte et faisons un bon voyage avec de gentils chinois avec qui on partage au moins douze repas Ramen...(pas de pierre aux reins encore). On est surpris par l'excellente qualité du Hostel choisi en plein quartier The Bund à...
