Dear Brother Johan,
The tour guide Promise was very helpful and knowledgeable. There was no problems in communication because there was Dr Thor in my group who speaks Mandarin. The ICT sales in communicating with me has been excellent. The driver was friendly and ever willing to accommodate our wanting to stop to go to toilet issues. The hotel was excellent too. The restaurants chosen had great food but the rest rooms inside the restaurants was not clean (the level of hygiene was poor which was disappointing because it was in a place where food was being prepared….Alhamdulillah none of us came down with food poisoning). I would suggest that if a trip takes 3 hours to go there and to get back it is better to suggest to the tourists to spent a night at that place rather than have to rush back.
Thank you for a giving us a meaningful journey. If all goes well I may decide to go to Beijing in 2015 for the same conference only this time in a different city (provided the issue with MH 370 gets resolved first).
Thank you, Wassalam
