那我为什么拿这个行程？？ 错了，我本来是要去昆明的！谁知临出发前长江才打电话给我说因为人数不够，不成团。当中的‘必七’(pik cik) 就别讲了，折腾一番之后选了这个桂林观光团。这是第一个不爽。
6D5N Guilin~Yang Suo~He Zou~Zhao Qing~Shen Zhen
I was thinking not to write this, but after few days, I still feel like say something, so here I am, sharing this little pieces of mind of mine.
Remember, if you ever wish to pick any trip from 'Yangtze Cruise & Tour Sdn Bhd', personally I would advise you not to take the itinerary above. As the itinerary is customized to suit their need instead of customer. Means, for the sake making all customer depart from Guang Zhou Airport (as they chartered the plane), they've customized an itinerary that took 4-5hrs ride from Yang Shuo to He Zou just for ONE sight seeing point and another few hours ride to another place just for another ONE sight seeing point (the 1.20mins cruise) & shopping.
But why did I choose this itinerary? Well, this is not my first choice you see. I wanna go Kun Ming at the very first place! But few weeks right before the trip, they called and said due to not enough people, the trip has to be cancel and asked me picked another trip. Let's omit how 'pik cik' I was and the bullet I got from mother. I decided to go Guilin as this place is less 'dangerous' yet has a nice scenery (mother's point of view). So, this is my first 'unhappiness' of this trip.
But then since we decided to go trip, must go with a happy mood mah right? So lets forget about it and expecting the trip with a positive mind.
But then hor, Yangtze failed to book the morning flight from Shenzhen to Guilin that resulting us have to spend a day hanging out at ShenZhen and took the 10pm flight the same day! Where to go? Wow, they brought us to 'Lotus Hill' (Lian Hua Shan), climb N steps of staircase to watch the effigy of Deng Xiao Ping. Then, shopping. This is the second 'ganasai' in my heart. But still, I try to be positive coz its just first day of the trip, I don't wanna spoil the remaing days!
So? Fine. I try to enjoy and cheer up mama, when we reached Guilin already midnight and seriously half dead. But we try to have faith that the remaining tour shall be back on track and shall be just fine.
Eh, but AGAIN besides Guilin and Yang Shuo, the remaining sight seeing place all took us few hours ride to reach the destination and its just one sight seeing point a day, then free and easy walk and shop.
Fantastic. All and all is just because they chartered the flight, they made all their customer depart from Guang Zhou. It sucks, seriously.
Last but not least, since the whole plane's passengers are YangTze's customer, I've heard some of their feedback on other itinerary as well, and the feedback are so so only.
Meaning to say, their goodwill has dropped and is not as worthy as compared to few years ago.
You may still wanna consider their other China tour package, but this particular one, you may think twice. I would suggest you to take Pearl Holiday's Guilin trip, my colleagues has quite a good feedback on their Guilin tour. So, good luck!
