  • A trip to Song mountain
    DONNY | Jul 1, 2012 05:23

          This is the first time I travelled alone I had been planning for that for a long time.Then in the August of 2011 I set out alone with only a bag with me.It was kind of excited along with some anxiety.

Budget accommodation in Zhengzhou, Henan
APAULT | Jun 4, 2007 09:10

There appears to be plenty of better type accommodation around the railway station and associated bus station (which is not the Central Bus station which is a km or so to the north). But it is not easy to know which way to go for budget accom...which to me means 100rmb or less.

DO NOT be tempted by the touts offering a 31rmb room, it is a disgusting place.

Turn right (south) from the station and follow the road out of the square.... there are few places to choose from on the uses the same stairway as a Net bar. I stayed in the Zhong Mei Hotel opposite (and not before!) the large Yinji Commercial and Trading building. It only has rooms without bathroom, for 45 rmb single, but it is probably the cleanest place I have been in. There is a hotel at the far end of this street too. The 2 net bars here are the best I have even been in. There are also two good cheap eating places by second net bar.

A bit more expensive: as you exit the station go around the block opposite, which hides the bus station, and you will find the Datong Hotel, advertsed rate 100rmb... I don't know what it is like.

But there doesn't seem a lot to come here for !!

Be careful in travelling in long-distance bus in Dengfeng

It is somewhat not safe to travel in Xuluo (Xuchang--Luoyang)Express Way. Thieves are really rampant in the bus. Generally there are two groups in this way, one is from Baisha to Dengfeng and the other is from Dengfeng to Luoyang. They do not steal those clear-headed. They prefer those asleep. Please note that the driver will not remind you of any thief even they know who is thief. They will generally tell all the clients not to sleep or loud the speaker.
