huangshan trip
By CCCHEN | 3/9/2012 9:33:11 PM

Can anyone please tell me the following:

1. Can we plan the trip without going through the formal tours?
2. What is the advantage of using the tours which are expensive.
3. Is a tour with Chinese guide (not English) much cheaper? If so, how can we find those from the US?

Travel Tips for climbing Huangshan Mountain
By NATURE_1984 | 4/22/2011 8:45:21 AM

1. Be kind to yourself - Travel light! Facilities are available to leave luggage at the bottom of the mountain, so if possible please take a small bag or backpack for your overnight stay on the mountain. If this is not possible and you need to take luggage to the top of the mountain, porters are available to carry your bags. You will need to negotiate a price. RMB 120-160 would be a fair price to pay for this service

2. Clothing & Shoes - It is essential to take a jacket as it gets chilly and good walking shoes. Raincoats can be purchased and are a very wise investment for protection from the rain and wind. Don't use an umbrella as it can be dangerous.

3. Purchase some bottled water and snacks before you start to ascend the mountain. Supplies are available on the mountain but the prices increase with the altitude.

4. A cable car is available to make your trip to the top of the mountain easier but there are still lots of steep narrow stairs on the mountain if you plan to get the most out of you time. Please take care when climbing and trying to get the best photo opportunity.

maanshan cowboys bar (foreigner's club)
By FURIUTING | 4/27/2010 9:51:07 PM

This is the place for laowais (foreigners) in Ma'anshan. A western bar with no pretensions, just a nice place to enjoy a drink while listening to music and make friends with chinese . The waitresses are gorgeous and the owner is a very friendly Chinese folk who knows every foreigner in town (i.e. 5 or 6, hehe). A must-visit for any visitor to this city that is clean and beautiful, graded one of the "10 green cities in China" by the Government.

Tell the taxi driver 'niuzai jiuba' (pronounced new-zei jouba) or you write '牛仔酒吧'. This means "Cowboy bar" and he'll know how to go. Never pay more than 9rmb for the ride.

Maanshan's Cowboy Bar, a foreigner's club, is the only western-style bar in Maanshan. We are located in the center of Maanshan (Chongyang Road). Cowboy Bar registered in early 2004 and is a trendy local hang-out. After several years of development, Cowboy Bar has become an international Western pub. Here you will experience a genuine Western Bar atmosphere. When you open the door, you will feel like you have entered your local bar. Friendly staff and international customers welcome you to join our family. Maanshan's Cowboy Bar is your friendly neighborhood pub.

Cultural aspects that motivate travel to Kerala
By GARY123 | 6/15/2009 6:46:34 AM

The main cultural aspects that motivate people to travel to Kerala are those that are connected with the individual’s desire to travel in to other countries in order to learn more about the way of life of the people living there, and their cultural heritage as expressed in the local art, music, literature, folklore etc. Kerala state has a rich ancient cultural heritage that is known all over the world.
because he will not be disappointed due to the diversity of cultural events in the state. Not even one month passes by without any major cultural event. People enjoy the cultural events without any inhibitions. The local culture is very much part of their daily lives.

Even then, perhaps in no other district in Kerala can you see such a diversity and vibrancy in cultural activities as in Thrissur, the cultural capital of Kerala. Thrissur is home to scores of cultural institutions where you can learn and even participate in cultural forms that are extinct in other parts of the state. Scores of students from overseas destinations were trained and many are undergoing training in the scores of cultural institutions scattered at different parts of the district.

To witness the cultural forms in its entirety, the best time to visit the state is during the Onam season. Almost all the leading educational institutions, government departments, non-governmental organizations and other private establishments participate in the cultural events often spending phenomenal sums of money. Almost all the schools and colleges conduct cultural fests and other competitions wherein the students and staff members participate in the traditional attire.

The main venue of the cultural events is in the capital city, Trivandrum. The cultural extravaganza is often inaugurated by the CEO or the Chief Minister of the state. Due to the multiplicity of the cultural forms, the events are held at different venues so as reduce the congestion at the main venue.

Yellow Mountain Winter 2007/2008
By LEMONCACTUS | 1/1/2008 9:04:46 PM

Having just come back from 3 days up Yellow Mountain, I just wanted to leave a few tips to those planning winter trips this year.

1. There are various areas that are closed, due to ICE and SNOW until the end of March 2008. These are: The West Sea Grand Canyon Route, The Lotus Peak and the Heavenly City Peak.

2. Access via walking, or cable car from the East, West and North are all OK.

3. No SNOW at the moment.

4. Entrance fee: 120RMB or 100RMB with student card.

5. Cable cars, when I was there, were still charging 55RMB per person/one way!

6. Mountain is still very busy, would advise booking rooms/beds ahead if possible.

7. Temperatures below zero, between -2 and -10.

OK, think that's all for now, have a great trip :)
