Hello Judy,

We came back without any problem to Shanghai on Saturday evenening.
Thank you first for having organised the trip as you did. My parents and I
had overall a very great time in Yunnan.

We were really happy with some of our guides : in Xishuangbanna (chendongmei
and steve) they were very cheerful and friendly and made us discover lots of
peculiarities pf the area.
In Lijiang, Joseph was a very interesting guide, accompanied by an
outstanding driver, Mr Han, who put all of us in a good mood.

I want to draw your attention to Dali though, because we somehow wasted time
there and were not at all satisfied with the quality of service of our guide
; since we arrived quite early in Dali, we finished the whole of our
programme by 2.30 in the afternoon and were sent back to the hotel at this
time. I had to ask her (a little bit vehemently...) to find an interesting
place to go for the rest of the afternoon. She accompanied us then for
another 2 hours walk in the streets down town. Still, we had to have dinner
and find activities alone after 5 PM.
This could be OK if the beginning of the day had been pleasant, but we went
to a so-called fishing village on border of Lake Erhai after lunch, and did
not see a single boat nor fisher, nor learnt anything about the local

I guess I have said enough about Dali : we did not enjoy it a lot, and had a
true feeling of boredom and lack of motivation from the guide's side.
Apart form Dali, the rest of the trip brought us a lot of satisfaction.

Xishuangbanna gave us a feeling of exotism, and variety with all its
minorities and thick forests.
Lijiang is a true wonderland, on both cultural and landscape sides.

About Kunming, we enjoyed the market all the more we tasted banana pancakes
The musem deserved a visit as well.(I regret that Western hills were so
The first day in Stone Forest was a great one as well.

My last point will be about food : I know my parents and I are not great
chinese food lovers, still, we did not enjoy the food a lot. Apart from some
Dai dishes, the crossing bridge noodles and a Yak dish, we had the feeling
of eating almost the same dishes every day.
As a traveling habit, we would have like to get some drinks during the day
(even plain water) because some places made us really thirsty.
Breakfasts in chinese style (noisy, food often cold, tasteless and very
greasy) made the three of us really bored...but this is something we more or
less got used to in China.

To be positive, I must say that guides made efforts to give us local dishes
to taste though.
This is valid for other aspects of the mangement of the trip : they were
nearly all dynamic and very open-minded.

Finally, we have lots of beautiful images in mind now.
I hope we will exchange photos, and that we can keep in touch. My parents
and I will recommend warmly to our friends to go traveling in Yunnan, and
tell them your agency is a reliable one.
