    Hi Cathy. Here is the review of my trip.
    The hotel in Beijing, the Holiday Inn Express, was nice. I would recommend it. It was very comfortable. It was not as close to the center of things as my last hotel in Beijing, but I was able to find some decent restaurants in the area. The train to Zhengzhou was comfortable and fast- and saw quite a bit of the countryside. You know about the difficulty in meeting Stone Shi at the railroad depot. Next time I need to know which exit to take, as there are 3 of them. The hotel in Kaifeng was excellent- Zhongzhou International. Much better then the last hotel in Kaifeng. Stone Shi really helped me with everything while in Kaifeng, even translating for my fiance and her family. He has become a friend. The flight to Guilin was comfortable, and as you know Guilin was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. You are lucky to live there! My guide, Mr. Qin in Guilin and Yangshou was excellent. The Li River Cruise was a dissapointment, but only because it was fogged in the whole way to Yangshou. Yangshou was wonderful. I loved the cycling tour and bamboo rafting. It was very relaxing with beautiful scenery. The trip to Longji was nice, and I enjoyed the trip and tour to the top of the mountain. I will have to be in better shape if I plan on going to the yellow mountain some day!  The Leader House hotel was adequate, though the bathroom flooded quite a bit. The food was very good, and a professional message at a reasonable rate heped ease sore muscles. Hong Kong was an entirely different world! Very busy, very crowded, alot to do. The hotel Metropark was fine. The weather did not cooperate on Victoria Peak (fog again), but I enjoyed the Aberdeen Fishing Village and Stanley Market. Macau was allright, but the best part was the guide and comopany on the join-in tour. The flight back home was quite long and the jet lag bruital. I think I will stick to Shanghai next time! Overall, I had an excellent time.
    For your published review:
    Once again, Easytour China excells in providing quality service throughout my trip to China. The guide's were excellent, and the trip to Guilin, Yangshuo and the Longji Rice Terraces truly memorable. Thanks again, Cathy, for an amazing trip!
    Take care Cathy, and all my best!
