Yes of cos he did, luckily he was quick witted he had 2 hand phones with him and when he realised that something was amiss he threw one of his HP by the roadside, the robbers did not see it so when they left he called 110 with that phone, unfortunately he wasn't able to tell the police his exact location, until he highway patrol came along and picked him up. He spent the whole night in the police station and the following morning in the hospital and came back to Yantai in the afternoon.

Beware of bogus tours operating in Beijing that will leave you stranded in some out of the way place and perhaps take of with some of your belongings.
The Li river cruise to Yangshuo is highly over rated and very expensive, and when you reach Yangshuo you are forced to make your way through a gauntlet of very annoying and very persistent hawkers.
There is little of interest in Yangshuo other than overpriced junk for tourists but the surrounding countryside has a lot to offer.

Am I glad I'm going on an organised tour for the 1st time in my life, you bet. Always done our own thing but thought better of it in China.

Jendy, It's not really as bad as it might seem from tehse comments. It can be hard travelling in China on your own mostly because of language. But I have had no bad experiences living in China for 15 months 3 of them travelling. On the contrary, I have received lots of help. An organised trip though, does ensure you do major toursit things in a shorter time and actually see the sights - I miss a lot!

The dreaded flag, yep you have to laugh when you see them but decided it would just be to hard to do our own thing as we have elsewhere and yes language would be a problem. This time I'll be happy to sit back, put my feet up and let some-else worry about all the details. We'll be doing lots, walking, trains, boats, airplanes with a little free time hopefully to do some shopping, I want to shop, not for clothes, they won't fit, funny about that. Very much looking forward to getting there.

It is not just happen in China, I treat it like an ordinary incident, expecailly when I travel with tour group excorted by local guide. I have to get more cautious about shopping, and be wise before making any purchase.
