    Hey, I’m Jess :D I have booked this tour also, it is my first Contiki :D Thought I’d do something a bit different to what I normally do as I am always travelling alone :/

    Where are you guys from? I’m from Perth, Australia :D

    Hi Jess! Good to see there’s another solo traveller :) I’m from the gold coast. What are you guys doing about spending money etc? I have no idea how much money we would need. Are you staying extra nights in Beijing or hong kong before/after the tour?

    Oh awesome I love the Gold Coast :) I’m not entirely sure how much money I’ll take. I fly into Beijing early on the 27th and I’ll be staying in Hong Kong until the 13th. I haven’t booked my accommodation yet for Hong Kong, can’t really decide where to stay haha

    I’m from the Uk so will be catching a flight out of Manchester :)
    I arrive a day early before the tour starts and thinking about staying a day later as I’m doing another tour after.
    I was going to ask the same! I don’t know wether to take cash and a cash card thing or one or the other, I don’t really know how the card works with the different currencies etc
    Eeee I’m so glad you found this discussion! Starting to think it would just be the two of us going it alone ! Hehe

    Eeek I’m so excited haha :) only 98 days til I fly out haha. I booked this tour way back in January and the waithas taken forever lol. I’m so glad I found this discussion also I’ve been thinking I was the only one so far hehe. I’m going to look into the cards soon, I used a travel money card when I went to Taiwab and Japan. It was a bit hard to use in Japan as most places you need to pay cash. Not sure if China is the same.

    I used a cash passport card when I went to Europe and I’m going to use it again and take a credit card as well. I’m looking at flying in the morning of the 28th, and not too sure about after the tour. I’m going to book a one way flight and then see what I feel like doing after the tour :) soo excited!

    Hi Brittany. Yes I plan on staying for a few days to do some shopping. I also plan on going to Seoul before the trip starts. Is anyone else going anywhere before the trip starts?

    Jessica, as discussed I am totally up for it, even if we are on the overnight train we can celebrate it the next next night!

    Yeah I reckon it’d be fun :D Where is everyone going to stay in Hong Kong afterwards? There are so many options :/ Anyone going to go to Disneyland?

    Sorry guys I haven’t responded in a while! Hi Natalie and Rahul :) glad there’s a few more finding this convo :) I have another tour booked after sink can’t go other places and explore with you Rahul, where you flying in from?
    Jessica, I’ve booked a night in Hong Kong through contiki as you can have 1 night before or after in each area so I will be staying 1 night at where we finish up in Hong Kong as I thought that’s what most people would do? X

    Haven’t booked my hong kong accomodation yet, will probably book at the contiki recommended for that last night then not sure after that. I’ll see where others book, will probably spend a few more nights in hong kong. And yes, definitely keen for Disneyland !

    Hey guys :) so I’ve booked two extra nights in hong kong after the tour ends in the hotel that contiki recommends. I just thought it would be easier, the last thing I feel like doing after the tour ends is having to find my way around hong kong to a new hotel! Hopefully others are staying here too :)
