Green Tree Alliance Hotel, Zhuhai.
GUNNARF11 | Zhuhai | 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?

Plan visits to China

Plan visits to China. What do you of this trip? How many days will you stay? When you can answer these questions ... Double the time you intended and your stay in China will be successful and you will look forward to several upcoming trips in China.
I received an email from acquaintance who said I should explain what I mean by planning for some time and then doubling the length of stay.
It thus reduces stress. My first visit to China, I thought would be a week. It was 15 days. Next stay in China was estimated at 3-4 weeks. It was 65 days. Then supposed stay 1-2 months and it was 2 years.

My wife traveled yesterday (September 26 -12) from Wuhan to Guangzhou. Many people on the train and therefore the bags prepared at a location near the exit. At the stop in Changsha "arranged" a panic at the end of the train and bags disappeared. Among other things, my wife's bag, size large carry-on bag. This included new expensive clothes, which were gifts from relatives and friends. There were also specialty "Wuhanfisk" that she would bring to Sweden.
Leagues know the value found in bags on trains is much louder than the regular train.
They're not the poor people who go speed train. If you have a bigger bag for the trip, it is better to take flight, even if it gets longer time with the connections.
