    Im sorry to disapoint you but it definately hasnt improved, tsingtao is still like making love in a canoe (fucking close to water) and still served at room temperature, Foshan isnt far from downtown but far enough away to guarantee you will struggle to get a decent beer

    DALI

    The ancient city of Dali is one of Yunnan's most popular tourist destinations. It has historic sites, ancient buildings and temples, nearby beautiful Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake, local crafts, and the "Foreigners' Street" with Western-style restaurants and bars and English-speaking business owners. The street is popular with both foreigners and Chinese. It is known as a backpackers’ haven. Cangshan Mountain is a great, scenic hiking area and a natural reserve. Erhai Lake is to the east and Cangshan Mountain is to the west. Tourists visiting the area can see temples and architecture 1000 years old, buy beautiful souvenirs and objects of art, learn about the history of the area and of the native peoples, and go on excursions to the nearby lake and mountain.

    Very similar to lijiang

    Hey Lao,

    When i toured Fish head land ten years ago a trip to the bogs was quite a fookin head fuk.

    Ya would walk in the bogs and a concrete trench would run along the wall, no partitions.

    All the Fish heads would be crouched over it having a nasty shit, smoking durries and yelling at each other.

    I was hard to work out whether to laugh my box off or just get a gun and shoot the lot.

    Lucky i never had a gun.

    Fook that Country, it's well fooked.
    I do not give Patsycat " The Horn " thank Fuk.

    Quick Guide on Train Travel in China

    China train system boasts over 77,000 miles (124,000 km) long railway, including the world's largest high speed train network connecting more than 500 cities across the country, and the highest speed can reach 186 mi/h (300 km/h)
    • HOW TO BUY TICKETS Two methods: book with an online agency as early as possible to ensure the best seat/berth; purchase at a railway station with your original passport at most 28 days in advance.
    • Which type of train and which class to choose High speed types are recommended, with second/first/business class seats for short-time journeys. Soft Sleepers and Hard Sleepers are good choices for an overnight trip.
    • How to collect tickets Two ways: deliver to a hotel you reserved in China; pick up by yourself at a railway station with your original passport and pickup number.
    Pay a bit extra and get them delivered to your gaff, I didnt and it was a nightmare picking them up from the station
