Beijing to WuxiAugust 25 in China
Up early for a flight to Shanghai and then a bus trip to Wuxi. Have to say that Chinese airline travel (international and domestic) is more than fine - food is great and seat room (particularly international on China Southern) is good. Good selection of movies, wifi and USB power.
The 2 hour bus trip to Wuxi is almost one continuous metropolitan area - hard to describe the amount of high rise apartments etc - just incredible. Urban Shanghai itself is 25M people (that’s Australia).
Arrive at Wuxi and had a look at Lake Tai - a huge fresh water lake (2250 sq km but average depth of only 2 meters). A place for boating, families and picnics.
Dinner at another fantastic restaurant - great selection of food. You know the meal is finished when the watermelon comes out.
A chance after dinner to wander around near the hotel (which is in central Wuxi). There was some sort in festival going on with fireworks dancing and lots of people.
Another great day.Read more
