For this trip to have come true for me I would like to thank Joanna for finding this great trip. Also asking me to join the group, to make the journey to the far east. This trip was a very affordable chance for me to visit this part of the world. I would to thank our guide in Shanghai John Tang for doing a great job being our guide. John's knowledge of his country is very impressive. Also John is a fun and entertaining guy to be around. John Tang also did a thorough job to look out for us all. Making sure we enjoyed our time visiting China!

My Chinese Experience is over and it will take awhile for it all to sink in. The trip was a great one! Everyone in our tour group did a lot of travelling in a very short time. First their was the 13 plus hour flight from Toronto to Shanghai. Then in 10 days we traveled and looked around some major sites in 5 different cities in China. The cities were; Shanghai, Suzhou, Wuxi, Hangshou, and Beijing. Most of our ground transportation was by bus. We also completed a 1200 KM bullet train ride from Shanghai to Beijing. Also we had to endure an over 12 hour flight back to Canada! My favorite experiences on this trip were; the boat cruise on the Grand Canal in Suzhou, the boat ride on West Lake in Hangzhou, the night cruise in Shanghai, also riding the Maglev Train was really cool, having the chance to see the Great Wall of China & also discovering the Great Path of China was memorable!
