Covid-19 An important update from Evaneos

Trip review
China

loved their trip to China

Everyone knows about the size of China's population and the power of it's economy. However, actually experiencing it first hand is a completely different matter. We travelled to Beijing and returned from Shanghai. Between times we undertook 2 long train journeys (one overnight), 2 internal flights and a number of long minibus journeys. That really gave us a feel for the scale and diversity of this fascinating, friendly and exciting country.

Best parts:
* Everything running smoothly - guides always there to meet us. * Quality of accommodation - ranged from good to very good indeed. * Guilin and surrounding areas - such a contrast to the wealthier areas, rice terrace visit phenomenal. * Shanghai - I don't have sufficient vocabulary. Breathtaking. * Chinese people - warm, funny, friendly. * Guides - so informative, polite, knowledgeable, helpful, friendly.
Worst parts:
* Too many temples. Fascinating at first, but eventually wore thin. * The oppressive climate (would go at a different time of year). * At some tourist attractions the sheer volume of other tourists massively detracted from enjoyment. * By day 12 eating Chinese food twice each day had begun to pall (minor issue only).
