currency tip
By CHRIS2014 | 7/1/2014 3:36:43 AM

Please prepare a sum of local currency, because it will be not convenient when you need to buy something in other countries.
There are at least 3 reasons:
1. More convenient
2. Exchange rate will not affect your mood
3. Avoid someone cheat you during exchange money

Good Halal restaurant
By FRIEDWORLD | 6/16/2014 3:25:28 PM

If you like Turkish food as well as Sea food, then u should try the Bosphorus Premium in Guangzhou. It's a very good restaurant and i was really surprised, when I tried it the first time. So I can only recommend it to all of you. The prices are ok and the service is very good!

Be ware of fake money in china
By FASHIONSTYLE | 5/12/2014 4:55:08 AM

Many of my friends come to guangzhou,when they exchange money in the airport area,they get too much fake money, i have asked them where are they get the RMB, some of them say the exchange store, some of them say the taxi driver...

So the best way is ,before you arrive china, you can do some exchange in your country ,to make sure you get the real RMB. if you still need to exchange money, you can go to the bank here, it is more safely to get the real Chinese money--RMB

Green Tree Alliance Hotel, Zhuhai.
By GUNNARF11 | 11/10/2013 12:20:30 AM

I had booked rooms at the Green Tree Alliance Hotel in Zhuhai for 3 nights.
Due to some reasons , I needed to extend the stay and talked with reception. It was ok to stay longer was my idea of our diskusion with little knowledge of their languages ​​.Therefore , I was surprised when I arrived in the evening and was asked why I have not checked out. I said I already talked to the day before the reception to extend your stay and understands that it was ok. I had with me one known as the Chinese were able to explain how it was .It was ok to stay, but I had to move to a slightly smaller
but quieter room away from the more heavily trafficked street to the inside of the hotel .
Very good . Further misunderstandings due to language added when I needed to extend the stay further . But it was arranged quickly and at best way.
I had booked 3 nights but stayed 20 nights .
That's a very good score at the hotel right?

Overnight travel by train
By JIMMYJOJIMBOB | 5/20/2013 8:58:21 PM

I made the 30 hour one way trip to Guangzhou from Shenyang BeiZhan in January, 2013 and then 30 hours more to return to Shenyang a week later on the T12/13. First I would recommend buying the the Delux Soft Sleeper because that gives you a bed in a closed compartment with only 3 other people. The other sleepers are not closed and are 3 beds up: a lower a middle and an upper. The Delux Soft sleeper has its own train car and the train personnel control access when necessary. The compartment had a nice heater and kept us warm when it was 15 below zero (C) outside. Personnel give you a hot water thermos you can leave on the little table. You also get nice slippers to wear during the long ride. The bed is acceptably comfortable - I had a lower berth; and the blanket/duvet and pillow were clean - no complaints. You can buy food and drink in the dining car which is the last car and right after the Delux Sleeper Car; or train personnel sell warm dishes from a cart which they push along the corridors quite skillfully. You can also buy food during the train stops where food is sold right at the platform. The corridor also has little fold-down seats you can use to look out the big windows and get a nice change of perspective. The sit-down toilet was OK, never a problem. And the staff were friendly and helpful even though I don't know much Mandarin. Riding the train in China is a nice way to travel, see the countryside and meet different people. The new Shenyang Bei Zhan is also a great train station - very spacious, like Guangzhou East! Just remember that the Delux sleeper car is at the back of the train so try and take the exit from the waiting room that is nearer the back. Your bed is assigned so you don't have to worry about that. When I got on the train in Shenyang, an older couple from Jilin had tickets for separate compartments and asked me to exchange with one of them - I accepted since I still got to keep my lower berth (which I HAD to have). I was then lucky because there was only a lady and her middle school aged son who knew some English. So we had a nice time. I recommend this trip to anyone who likes to travel by train. I'll get pix later.

Backpacking Guangzhou
By STBIR1 | 3/31/2012 6:46:59 AM

Most backpackers I have met think Guangzhou is a dull industrial concrete jungle and too hard to handle. Some even got off the train there, saw the crowds, turned around and bought a ticket for the next train out! But this article hopefully will convince some backpackers otherwise and talk them into giving Guangzhou a go.
