Iman's 9 Days China Tour to Beijing, Zhangjiajie, Guangzhou, Guilin and Yangshuo

Iman's China Tour

Hi Grace,

Thank you again for helping us have such a wonderful trip! 

I’ve answered your questions, in-line, below. 

  1. The Avatar Mountains of Zhangjiajie were just amazing. There’s nothing like it back home. Also, the walk by the river in Guilin was quite beautiful. From an “activity” standpoint, we really enjoyed the cooking class, which was just a fun story to tell people when we got back home. 
  2. All of our guides were great. But Ping and Linda really stood out. They just seemed genuinely happy to be with us and answer our questions. They were very memorable. Just nice people. Linda REALLY helped us a lot, especially when I crashed my drone. She really cared about me, and went out of her way to make sure everything was okay. Everyone was so sweet!
  3. All of the hotels were great, especially the Banyan Tree Hotel in Yangshuo. The only hotel we did not like was the Sunshine hotel in Zhangjiajie city. When we arrived late at night, they only had SMOKING rooms available, and it just wasn’t “easy”. It was fine, but it was definitely NOT as good as all the other hotels we stayed at.

  5. The meals were good. It was critical to have our guides order for us. Most of the places wouldn’t have served food we liked unless our guides changed the orders. Having the guides order made a big difference. After a while though, it was hard to eat “oily” food. I wish we had more salad/fresh/not oily foods. But, we were really worried about getting sick from ‘fresh fruit” because of the water. Anything to add more fruit/salad would have been great. But the restaurants were great, the hotels were great.
  6. The train was great, really nice view of the landscape. It actually left on time, as opposed to all of our air-travels, which were all delayed.  It was a little confusing figuring out which “car” (part of the train) to board. On the ground, there were many different colors/numbers. So it was hard to know which “#8” was the correct #8. Right before the train showed up, we found out we were waiting at the wrong part of the track, and had to run to get to the correct car. So, perhaps tell your clients “Look for the YELLOW #3” or something like that.

  8. For the tips for future travellers:
  9. Bring your own Toilet paper/wet wipes for when you’re out of the hotel. 
  10. Pack LIGHT, don’t bring checked-baggage if you can avoid it, all of the trains/planes/walking will be much easier the lighter you travel. 
  11. EXPECT your planes to be delayed. Plan extra layover time between flights so that you don’t miss them. We missed our flight home because our flight out of Guilin was 6 hours delayed. 
  12. Google maps, Gmail, YouTube and Facebook don’t work, find OFFLINE maps and other ways to get/send email. You don’t want to show up and not be prepared. 
  13. The biking around the villages wasn’t really impressive, that was not a necessity. Also, the “fan shops” weren’t really worth visiting. Unless, of course you want to buy a fan. 
  14. Also, I don’t think we needed to do TWO bamboo raft trips. One bamboo trip would have been good.

  16. More time in nature, the better. It’s the natural beauty that makes Guilin and Zhangjiajie worth visiting, not the “shops”. 
  17. For the Wow tours, we just loved the sites in Zhangjiajie. When you could see it through the clouds was WOW. The mountains in Guilin from the bamboo raft was “Wow". The great wall was AMAZING, it’s a must! 
  18. Absolutely! We will recommend your company. We definitely plan on coming back to china! I’m not sure if you can see YOUTUBE videos or not, but we made a short video (60-seconds) of our trip that you might like to see. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Iy_oY1mvIw

I truly appreciate what you did for us, we had a wonderful time. I’m happy to put positive/kind words out on the internet, so other people know what a wonderful service you provide. 

Kind Regards,

THANK YOU!
