WHAT OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TELL US WHAT WE REALLY SEE & EXPERIENCE What’s there to see in China? There are no doors in the toilets one. You cannot find chili sauce in China. China got many people. China has a lot of imitation goods. Which one to see? (Jia Lat… TOO many scenic areas…) Got door… But where are the locks? The food is already spicy, oily and salty (at some restaurants). China has TOO many people. You mean they sell authentic ones? (Actually they do but it is TOO expensive)
Too many places. Too many pictures. Too much information. Group them. Choose the nicer ones. Input our experiences.
China is multicultural and has a long history. China has many beautiful Gardens and Lakes. China has an effective Education system. China has many excellent Businessmen and women. China has a lot of good Food.
