Day 2 Yinchuan (B, L)

Yinchuan (B, L)

Sightseeing: Sand Lake, Western Xia Film and Television City, Western Xia Mausoleum

Morning transfer to the Sand Lake for relaxation. This lake covers more than 80 square kilometers and the area is composed of sands, water and hills.

Afterwards, you will visit the Oriental Pyramid - Western Xia Mausoleum. The mausoleum are a well-known travel site. It is located at the eastern foot of Helan Mountain, close to Yinchuan City in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, measuring 10 kilometers north to south, 4 kilometers east to west; the mausoleum contains the tombs of emperors of the Western Xia. There are eight tumuli and over 70 annex tombs in this area.

Then visit the Western Xia Film and Television City, where 60 movies have been made since the 1980s. China West Film Studio, known as the Western Film and Television City, is located in the northwest of Yinchuan City. Since the 1980s more than eighty movies have been filmed in the China West Film Studio. China West Film Studio is the very best choice of location base to shoot Western China and Ancient China theme movies' outdoor scene...

Then, we will drive back to Yinchuan.

Day 3 Yinchuan / Zhongwei (B, L)

Yinchuan / Zhongwei (B, L)

Transfer via: Private vehicle on our arrangement
Sightseeing: 108 Pagodas, Shapotou Scenic Spot

On the way to Zhongwei, visit 108 Pagodas. Enjoy the beautiful Shapotou Scenic Spot in Zhongwei County. Shapotou, a city lying in southeast Tengger Desert, is the transition band of Tengger Desert and Grassland. It is listed as one of China's 10 most beautiful scenic spots in 2004. What makes Shapotou distinguished is that it's a desert, but you can also see green land while enjoying the fantastic view of the golden sand sea on a camel. Riding camels through the Tengger Desert is no doubt a good choice for travelers. You'll feel as if you are a native nomad and bathe in the casual and romantic atmosphere. If you'd like something more exciting, try the sand rafting. Sitting on the sand raft and slipping from the top of the desert slope, which is about 100 meters high, will no doubt bring you the most unparallel experience in the world. Because of the special geographical environment and geological structure, the bottom of the sand raft will produce a strange sound called "golden sands striking the bell" by local people.

Tonight we will camp in desert.

Day 4 Zhongwei / Yinchuan (B, L)

Zhongwei / Yinchuan (B, L)

The Nanguan Mosque has a history of hundreds of years. It was destroyed by wars several times. Since 1949, with the help of the government, it has undergone several repairs. In 1981, the Muslims in Ningxia area raised funds for the reconstruction. The mosque covers an area of about 10,100 square meters, and the construction area is more than 2,000 square meters. The main hall is 26 meters high. The second floor of the main hall can accommodate 1,300 people. There are bathrooms, worship halls, women's worship halls, the imam's dorm, and reception rooms, etc., in the first floor. There is one large and four small domes on the top of the main hall. Two minarets of 30 meters high stand on both sides of the main hall, and a fountain with 15 meters in diameter in the center of the courtyard. The whole building complex has compact layout, magnificent decorations.

Comment on our service from Martin McMulkin, UK
Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin.
Yinchuan tour
Thank you for organizing the trip, we had a great time.

1. Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive.

2. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. Only problem was that the seatbelt in the van did not work properly.

3. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin. Lots of companies seem to quote ridiculous prices for non-Chinese travelers.

Thank you very much and if we plan to visit somewhere unusual like this again I will get in touch with your company.

Thanks
Martin

Tour in Beijing
Thank you so much for organizing the Tour for us - my Boss loved it!!!

All went well - actually much better than I thought it would be.

The tour guide Lucy (Ling Ling) was simply amazing - what a wonderful lovable and knowledgeable person!!!!

She took care of us in the most perfect way. 

If there's a tourist guide that can work really well with foreigners, it's Lucy.

Her command of English was simply great.

Thank you again for arranging everything.

Enjoy the rest of the day.


Cheers,
Sandra

Comment on our service from Barton Lee, Hong Kong
The tour operator is very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us, and the guide is good and helpful.
Family tour in Yunnan
Please see my comments as follows:
1. What do you think of our guide service? 
Good and helpful.

2. What do you think of our driver service? 
Good, but not particularly cheerful.

3. What do you think of the hotel service and their breakfast? 
These International hotels' services and quality are as good as they usually are. The only comment I wish to make is that on top of the guests request for the types of rooms, they should consider to allocate ground level or easy access rooms for elderly and/or handicapped guests.

4. Which meal makes you memorable? 
Aside from the hotel being rather old the Chinese restaurant food was excellent in Dali. Good variety and tasty.

5. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday? 
Because of you, Sandy! You were very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us. Thank you!

Best regards,
Barton
