Hi Marianne! I'm Emma. I'm coming on my own, first time I've ever done anything like it so pretty nervous but really excited at the same time! What about you? I'm 23 and from the UK :)

Hey!! I'm excited too, not long now!! I arrive on Sunday, leaving London Saturday afternoon, and I'm staying in Hong Kong one extra night in the end hotel and flying to Bali afterwards.
Have you done much travelling before?

I'm on a BA flight Saturday afternoon so this time next week....... :D
Just started packing this morning! Good to hear it's your 6th trip Sandra, that's encouraging that you've booked so many!
I'm staying in the end hotel in Hong Kong just for ease as I haven't got long before my flight out.
It'll be great to see you all Sunday night!

I don't think the tour starts till Monday so most people won't arrive till then.When you get to the hotel leave a message for me on reception and I will come and see you when I arrive-could go for a wonder and dinner? My taxi is at about half 4pm on sunday to starting hotel from Beijing airport so should be at hotel for dinner time.x

Sounds like a good plan, I reckon there should be a few of us there the night before from who I've spoken to so far :)
Do you have facebook?

Hey everyone! So pleased to hear you have already been on 5 tours Sandra, hopefully this will be just as good!
I'm getting there on Monday morning at about 11, so hopefully you can all show me around a bit! haha
I'm staying for 3 extra nights in Hong Kong in a hostel called YesInn Causeway Bay, it looks pretty central and cost about £55 on Hostelworld... I'm hoping to head over to Macau for the day too.
