This morning we drive to the “fire land” – Turpan(3hrs), famous for its melons and vineyards.

The first attraction for today is the brilliant project - Karez System which is special kind of irrigation system consisting of vertical wells, underground canals, ground canals and waterlogging pond. The  vertically dug wells are linked together to channel the water which occur during summer rain season, or melt from snow mountains of Tianshan range to desired farmlands on the ground. After the Karez visiting, tranfer to tour anther famous relic - the Jiaohe Ancient City which used to be the capital city of the former Cheshi State. It is renowned as the "perfect ruin of earth building" because it has been well preserved for almost two thousand years. Last activity for today is to visit the Emin Minaret. It is a elegant and innovative Islamic pagodaby built by the duke Emin Hezhuo to express his devotion to the lord Allah.  Emin Minaret looks like a awl which is 44 meter high. Nearby, there is an ornate mosque.

Hello Tiffany,

Thank you for your follow up email. I have returned to the US and it has been a good trip in Chengdu!  We enjoyed every part of the tour, and our tour guide was very helpful. We will definitely recommend to our friends if they are making their own travel arrangements. 

Thank you,

Hello Rita,

It took some time to answer, because i had a problem with my computer.

I much enjoyed the time in Zhangjiajie, the park was amazing, tiamen mountain, glassbridge…

Although for me it was a bit short, because of the problems with the flights.

And i know this is not your fault, but because of that i found the tour quiet expensive after everything.

The hotel in the city i stayed in was not ok. Poor hygiene, and the breakfast was horrible, so i don’t know what they charge,

but this is definitely not how it should be for a 3.5 star hotel.

For the rest Wendy was a very good guide, nice transport and good service.

Just a pity i also had some trouble getting home, therefore i ended the trip a bit with negative thoughts about China.

But this has nothing to do with China discovery.

I will recommend your services to other people, but please make a complaint to the hotel,

My standerds are less than other foreigners, so if in the future , you put people there to sleep, you will have more complaints,

i’m sure.

My photos are not yet on my computer, so sorry for that, but Wendy also took some, so maybe she can give you.

Best regards,
