Essential China - 2nd August 2013

Postby jo1234 » Mon Mar 04, 2013 5:51 pm

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone else is going on this tour. I am really looking forward to it :) I am in Beijing for a couple of days before the tour starts so would love it if I could meet up with somebody. I do not know chinese at all so it would be more fun to get lost with somebody rather than on my own :)

Hi Jo,
I´m booked on this trip as well together with a friend, but we won´t arrive before the beginning of the trip. Very much looking forward to this adventure! :D

Hi Sabine,

Nice to hear from you :) Where are you from? I am from England and I am a teacher. Are you planning to stay in Hong Kong after the tour for any extra days?

I am in Hong Kong until Saturday too. Are you going anywhere else after? I am a maths teacher-what do you teach?

No, we´re going straight back home on Saturday. Are you planning to stay longer in Asia?
I´m a maths teacher too :D
Have you been on trips like this before?

Singpore ist great! was there twice and liked it very much.
This is my second trip with G, did Peru/Bolivia/Chile last summer. Have also been on several Intrepid trips in Asia so far.
My friend is not a teacher. She works in an office.
Are you on facebook? There is a meetup section on the g adventures facebook page as well.

Brilliant-I've never been to Asia( or further east than Italy!!) Say hi to your friend for me, I look forward to meeting her too. I am on Facebook and I will have a look at it. I wonder who else is going to be on the trip and the range of ages?!???

You'd better book a tour with a local travel agency to Beijing, which arrange everything for you during your Beijing travel, most importantly, it's much safer.http://www.chinahighlights.com/beijing/
