  • An expat family from Netherlands enjoyed their trip to Gansu and Xinjiang, 2014

    Client: Marc Nationality: Netherlands
    Tour Dates: June 27 , 2014 -- July 5 , 2014
    Tour Planner: Charlie
    Itinerary: Xiahe, Zhangye, Jiayuguan, Dunhuang, Kashgar, Turpan

    Dear Charlie,

    The trip was very interesting and very well organized. We enjoyed seeing a totally different part of China.

    The guides were all competent and a nice companion during the trip. All cars were excellent and we felt really taken care of. The hotels were of different qualities, but I think the alternatives were not available. In kashgar, there is a Radisson Blue under construction, to be ready in Q2-2014, so soon. This might be a more expensive alternative for the hotel we had now, which is really run down over the years. In Xiahe, there were some issues with the drainage of the shower, also after we have switched room, but here there is no alternative and these are not really obstacles for us.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Marc.
