China & Hong Kong Trip - The Summary

Another journey!

This time round, Little Feet went to explore China and Hong Kong, together with nine other people. Nine? Yes, nine. A big group of ten people consist of eight late forties onwards and two twenties.

All started when dad met his friend that just came back from his journey in China. He showed dad some photos of 'gateway of heaven' and he also told dad about how he walked on a glass platform on top of the mountain at the edge of the cliff.

Since then, dad kept saying that he wanted to go to Zhangjiajie.

So, last year, I happened to stumble upon Air Asia sale and voila, suddenly we hold some air tickets to go to Guangzhou and back to Kuala Lumpur via Hong Kong.

I started to plan the trip then.

Our trip

All of us came from three different cities: Singapore, Palembang, and Denpasar. Therefore, we set a meeting point, namely Kuala Lumpur. All of us met at Kuala Lumpur on 17 April 2015 to continue our journey to China.

On 18 April 2015, we took the first flight to Guangzhou and then continued with noon flight to Zhangjiajie. We then spent two and half days at Zhangjiajie.

On 21April 2015, we rent a private minibus to drive us from Zhangjiajie to Changsha Train Station. We took high speed train from Changsha to Guilin.

We spent 22 and 23 April 2015 at Guilin and Yangshuo before departing to Guangzhou by high speed train on 23 April 2015 evening.

24 April 2015 was spent in Guangzhou fully.

On 25 April 2015, we took intercity bus to visit Hong Kong until 26 April 2015.

We then flew back to Kuala Lumpur on 27 April 2015 and ended our journey.

The route planning was not an easy job. Initially we thought of having full flight for intercity transfer but it would cause the cost to be sky high. We also thought of taking intercity bus/train but the distance was too long. We were scared that the elders would fall sick if we took that option. China having high speed train was surely a lucky thing for us, especially the one between Guilin and Guangzhou. That route started operation only in December 2014. Lucky us!

In total, we took five flights, two bullet trains, two intercity buses, a lot of local bus ride, a lot of cable cars, and many many many steps.

Love is in the air,
Little Feet
