ZHANGJIAJIE, YUAN JIA JIE, YANG JIA JIE

I salute my introduction to the Chinese workers who constructed those steps for easy climbing; the foot pace and height of every step is comfortable and not slippery for both ascend and descend. I was told that the workers who helped to construct the Park had to stay in the forest for years to build, a feat not envied by youngsters these days.

Despite our itinerary was action packed, I thank our Apple Travel Agency, and our Malaysian guide with the same name, for taking good care of us. The coach, food and hotel were fairly good. The first travel night ended with a good dinner and an exciting local cultural show. The pictures would tell more than the writing.  The second hotel, Pullman, was equally good. Breakfast was excellent with Expresso, good cheese and rich varieties of food to cater carnivores and herbivores.  We had a good massage to relieve some of the aches and pain of walking. Good companionship also made the journey interesting; there was good co-operation, conversation and friendship.

The Zhang’s, Yuan’s, Yang’s: all different surnames of different ancestors once lived in this area.  We took a VIP lane via Bailong (Lit. hundred dragons) Elevator to enter Fairy Land – Avatar! The elevator was of German technology, about 330 ft high, 50 passengers in each cabin, and less than 2 mins to reach the summit! It was the highest, fastest, heavy-loaded elevator in the world, built in 2002. I read that the fast transport was done for environmental protection, the avoidance of building hotels in natural parks.  This was the journey that astounded every visitor, it’s an earthly and mortal imagination of vision of heaven.

      My friend, don’t delay your trip. You need to be very fit to travel to China. Another great scenery is Jiuzhaigou, which I like to revisit again.

        Great. Jiuzhaigou is majestic in all seasons, but don’t visit during Chinese tourists peak. Join a good travel agency, with good hotel, good food and guides.
