Hong Kong Sunset Cruise plus Dinner at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Not clear from the tour description that the sunset cruise is a standard trip up and down the Victoria harbour and the Jumbo trip is a bus trip from the Hong Kong Central pier - I had imagined us sailing round to Aberdeen. The Jumbo itself is just a couple of minutes ferry through a standard yacht marina - there is no real sensation of "floating" and the old image of a sampan filled exotic harbour no longer exists. The restaurant itself is spectacularly kitsch and worth seeing and the food was good for such a touristy place. Worth doing but probably better value done privately.

Great gallery, but buying the voucher in advance didn't give any queue jumping benefits, so pay on the day works just as well.

Both trips were efficient and can't be faulted. For the return, pick up time was helpfully brought forward due to heavy traffic to ensure we met our flight.

Hangzhou - Heaven on Earth Day Trip from Shanghai

Shanghai, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Guide and driver were friendly and helpful. It is a long day trip, two hours each way, and it would be good to add something else to the Hangzhou end to make the journey more worthwhile. The West Lake itself was lovely. The pagoda visit after lunch was a bit of a non-event. Lunch itself was inedible.

Guangzhou (Canton) China Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
We found this a very enjoyable and rewarding day, and excellent value. Everything worked like clockwork to fit a lot into one day. It is maybe not one for tourists looking for major sights but for the money and time invested it gives you a glimpse into China,old a new,. The guides were enthusiastic, informative and helpful although occasionally you wished they would stop talking, for example on the bus journey to Guangzhou. The visits to the terracotta warrior and the porcelain shop were basically shopping opportunities. The market was not - just a walk through a mainly food market, but interesting. Lunch was very good in a pleasant restaurant. The Sun Yat Sen memorial hall and the temple were impressive. After a long day, it was good to relax on the train all the way back into Honk Kong. Most lasting impression was of the incredible growth of Shenzhen and Guangzhou - if you were in any doubt, it brought home to you that China will be the ecionomic super-power of the century.
