August 6, 2005 - August 6, 2005


I dislike the fact that many Guangdong cities' names do not appear in the "been to" list. Like Guangzhou and Shenzhen, I should be able to click on Foshan and Zhuhai.

I only got to see Zhuhai for 2 hours, not counting what I saw from my bus' window. Gorgeous sites, that's all I can say. I will return again to this city.

August 6, 2005 - August 6, 2005

My Macau trip pretty much was a 1 day shopping excursion, but we (my 63 other Foshan Tours travelers and I) did find time to visit a few tourist spots. Of the famous Citadel of Sao Paulo Do Monte, A-Ma and Kun Lam Temples, and Museu de Macau, A-Ma Temple moved me the most.

Hong Kong
July 30, 2005 - July 31, 2005

My two days and one night tour of Hong Kong was fun, even though we went through various tourist spots like Olympic sprinters. The highlight of this tour was the Sik Sik Yuen Garden of the Wong Tai Sin Temple, which is a “must see.” I also loved my view of Victoria Harbour from The Peak.

July 19, 2005 - July 19, 2005

The Chinese members of my group decided that they wanted to change our tour. Instead of spending the designated 5 days in Beijing, they chose to go shopping and eating in Tianjin. They had heard that the food and shopping were better in Tianjin.

We did see a couple of sights while we were in Tianjin. The Ancient Culture Street, the oldest street in Tianjin, was my favorite place.

July 16, 2005 - July 20, 2005

I booked a tour of Beijing through Foshan Tours. During this five days four nights tour, my group also spent one day in Tianjin. The tour was jam-packed with too many sights with too little time to enjoy them thoroughly. I will have to go back and take some time to enjoy the Beijing beauty. I also only had time for phone conversattions with my friend, Diane.

May 28, 2005 - May 28, 2005

I went to Shenzhen for one day to help Diane with her belongings. She was getting all of her luggage that she left behind while she came to Foshan to spend some time visiting with me before she took a new job in Beijing.

I did not like Shenzhen at all. It did not have a warm ambiance as does Foshan, nor was there much traditional Chinese architecture.

May 21, 2005 - May 28, 2005


Diane and I decided to visit many Foshan places with the help of two local individuals. We liked the second guide, Jack; he was awesome!!!! He not only charged us WAY less for more hours but also he was a superb guide, and he took us to a wonderful Foshan country restauraunt called Phoenix where the Cantonese food was to-die-for...mouth-watering delicious.
