Last month I traveled to China for the first time for two reasons: to meet my online girlfriend from Guangzhou and to see China firsthand.

  • Traveling with a Chinese Tour Group 2014-2-9 00:19

    I remember travelling with a Chinese group back in 1997. Me and my brother were the only foreigners on that tour. The passengers were all young couples and one couple accompanied by their parent. At the start of our trip they wondered who was the young Chinese girl accompanying us. When she told them that those two foreign looking guys were her uncle, they became curious and wanted to know more about us. My niece told them the whole story her father told her about the uncle who left his ancestors village and never returned. Suddenly we felt that we weren't foreigners anymore in their eyes and were treated very well, smiles, jokes, good food, play, scenic views etc, everything my old couldn't enjoy now his two sons were enjoying in his native country. Our father left in the mid 1920s and passed away in 1967.

    A nice article! Your girlfriend cared you since you were a foreigner to the local people, she worried you may be ripped off for not knowing the local market price there!

As a Chinese, thanks for your good feelings to China, and Chinese people.
