I took the Viking River Cruise tour and saw Beijing, Xi’an, Chongqing… then sailed from Chongqing to Wuhan… and finally ended up in Shanghai. An AWESOME trip. The staff were so very friendly.
The only terrible part… there are vendors EVERYWHERE trying to sell you crap and following you around like lost puppies.
On the mini 3 gorges tour, my friend Lei translated what a woman was saying… the woman wanted to sell us her baby for $1. Crazy.
There’s quite a diametric of rich and very very poor still happening in China. I hope that we continue to see the entire country lift itself up and prosper.
