China Trip

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Wednesday went to Ningbo and then rushed to Quzhou.

Quzhou is an ancient city its known half of the Confucious clan moved to this city during the Warring state period anyway its more than a thousand years ago. Its scenic too with many mountains and big city people flock here for vacation especially during summer. Obviously we do not have the luxury of time to travel so just make do with the time we have in the old part of the city which still has a part of the ancient wall preserved

Were you in China or Sihanoukville?
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

I found hotels in Guangdong province were exceptional value. This room must have been what, 200-260 rmb ?
Oh it’s Intercontinental Hotel in Foshan, you know Intercontinental, it’s 720RMB per room per night

That is still pretty cheap. I have paid more for worse rooms.
