Dear Bruce

Thanks for your email, it is very important to tell us this inofrmation that you will not take the train to get the border of Heko, otherwise, our guide and driver will very warry about if you miss the train to get to the border if they could not meet you in the morning,

You will tell our guide and driver to meet you on the border around 10:30-11:00AM on 11 March.

Please contact to our English speaking tour guide, Mr Micheal Chen, his mobile phone is, he and driver will meet you on Heko.

I think it is better that you made a call to Micheal's mobile one day prior to arrival to Heko.

Or you made a call to Judy's mobile before you start out the tour, Judy's mobile: 86-13888726753.

pls find the answer related to your questions in red word followed as:
Regarding the bicycles: I am tall (180 cm or 5 feet 11 inches) and my wife is shorter (158 cm or 5 feet 3 inches). I will therefore need a large bicycle and my wife will need a small bicycle. Please send this information to the guides so that bicycles of the correct size for us will be available. Please also be advised that will are expecting
Shimano 21 or 27 speed bicycles.

It is ok that you are tall of 180CM and your wife is 158CM, the bicycles are suitable for your tall and your wife, and the Shimano 21-18 speed bicycles, we have offer our guests from world wide, they are satified with our bicycles.


We will plan to use our ATM card to withdraw money when we are in China. Is there a reason that we should bring US dollars with us? If we need US dollars, how much do you advise us to bring?

We advise you to bring some USD cash with you, you could use ATM to withdraw money in the capital big cities, but it is not vailable or difficult to find the Bank of China in small counties.

For example, it is not available to use ATM in Yuanyang county, Yuanjiang. Etc.

I think you could bring some US dollars for 300-500USD for per person.

Dear Judy,

We will be visiting the Sapa area of Viet Nam around Lao Cai (across from Heko) for three days prior to March 11, when we cross into China. We plan to leave Sapa village early on March 11 to arrive in Lao Cai in the morning and will probably be in Lao Cai around 10:30 on March 11. So please don't expect us toarrive on the train from Hanoi on March 11. The name of the company in Viet Nam is Marco Polo Tours, if you need to contact us between March 1 and March 11 when we will be in Viet Nam:

Regarding the bicycles: I am tall (180 cm or 5 feet 11 inches) and my wife is shorter (158 cm or 5 feet 3 inches). I will therefore need a large bicycle and my wife will need a small bicycle. Please send this information to the guides so that bicycles of the correct size for us will be available. Please also be advised that will are expecting

Dear Judy,


We have received our China visas.

Our flight from Beijing is Asiana Airlines flight OZ 334. It departs from Beijing at 12:10 PM on 31 March.

We will not have mobile phones with us. I will send you the mobile number of our agency in Vietnam when I get it.

Regarding the cost of the trip:

The cost of the trip that you have quoted is the amount before we reduced the number of days. As you remember, we initially planned to arrive on 10 March and now we arrive on 11 March. You replied to me:

"It is ok, that we will adjust the tour to visit the Jiuxiang cave instead of Luopin, or put the 3 days tour into 2 days, we will think about it and tell you soon. We eliminated one night in Kunming region."

Now the tour is for 21 days, not 22 days. Because we will spend one night less on tour, the original price should be reduced by an amount that will account for a reduction of one day in our tour. Please let me know if this is not clear.

Thank you for all your help,

Bruce Magun
