Guilin- Mountains of Serendipity

Destination- = Guilin/Yanshou/Lipu, China
Flight- AirAsia (0 Fare) = RM147 (return, Airport tax=RM67 + Admin fee=RM80)
4D/3N package (MATTA Fair) = [insanely CHEAP] RM290
What does it cover?=Food+Accommodation+tour+access fee+visa+tipping+service charge+Amazing Liu San Jie Show+great friends+serene places+peaceful days..ahaks
When = winter 2010 (January 6 - 9) it's freaking cold.


This is one of the destination that i dont have to do anything, i mean from research, visa application, itinerary, booking or reservation, transportation, food or even accommodation after i paid the amount above. Sounds good to be true, right? But yes, it was. How often do i get this kinda opportunity? not quite but honestly i was a bit skeptical at first. Imagine paying that much amount and getting the fullboard package from MATTA fair, that alone already an unbelievable deal. But i paid RM50 as deposit during MATTA fair and paid the full amount once i got my AA ticket.

I'm amazed how they could squeeze so many things for that price. It was insane. I have prepared myself for the worse before embark my journey there so that my disappointment level will not be a negative if things go wrong. Anyway, i really enjoyed the whole journey (even for a short one), to a majestic place with natural beauty in abundance - i would like to call it as Mountains of Serendipity - a nature wonder = GUILIN, CHINA.

Our tour guide, speaks English, helpful and love to joke around too. Was lucky to join with a group of nice and friendly people in this trip. The hotels we stayed was excellent. hehehe...coz i normally searched for backpackers lodge/guesthouse for my trip. No complain on the food, 8 to 9 delicious dishes on the table for each meals. they fed us well. But i opt for non-pork. :P . The coach brought us to tourist spot attraction around with ease, pick up right in front of the hotel each time. Talk about convenience.
I leave some pictures for your viewing pleasure for now. Will blog about it with details of the itinerary later..
