    Jayde, I have done a lot of contiki´s, the China experience so far was my favorate! You get to stay at pretty good accomodations (5stars hotels in Hong Kong-Xian and Shanghai), the included food is amazing and the included sightseeing too. Comunication is a bit difficult but nothing that if you do some motion…. it will be fine;
    If I can give you a tip- I would stay a little longer in Hong Kong… it is so nice and beautifull…. I had two extra days there. Yangshuo- Dr. Lili for medicine and massages- really good. Don´t miss the bike ride in Xian—- that was one of my favourates! China is not an expensive country….. NEVER FORGET TO BARGAIN – example—— she will try to sell you a fake LV wallet for 950 –-—- you will pay 60-70 for that……… I went to the fake markets in Shanghai – sincerly –- don´t waist your time buying all that crap….. I hope you enyoy your tour as I have enyoed mine. AHHHHHH – I thought it was a waist of money to do the Yangshou light show – it was about 30US -- I didn´t like it –- do the dumpling dinner in Xian – delicious and the shanghai acrobat show these were about 15 to 20 us dollars…. and if you like to cook def do the cooking class- the teacher was great – the recipes were excellent and you can do them back home. China is a clean country, completely different from southeast asia. If you need anything jus ask. You can ship from Hong Kong it´s safe!

    Oh, sounds good, we’re staying in Hong Kong for a few nights after Contiki, been there before and know our way around pretty good.

    Excited to meet the crew :D
    We’re in Perth, Aus.
