Trip to Oriental Paris – 2

(From the airport and towards the center – it is a long straight which meant our taxi was and despite the taxi slowing at certain places where I saw enforcement system, it still fast all the way until we reached the

I managed to catch “ Horrible ” on the on-demand in-flight video and I say that movie was one the funniest I ever seen – the multi-talent and known cast and well comedy that is so fluid be aware – it is not safe for kids).

We in the morning after a smooth – despite reports of cyclones, were no major turbulence in the The flight has been a pleasant one too – all the “ behaved ” themselves and service was top (as usual). A quick stop at the was interesting – unlike the usual looking officers, the officers were young and friendly yes, they actually and we felt so welcomed – anyone more than 5 hours would have greatly it too) and after a quick (no one stopped us at the customs), we walked looking for taxi. Language was not an at the international airport – there is than enough airport who can speak some basic of English (“yu wan taxi?” was than enough for us to understand).

Being so obvious me being a (imagine an Indian in a sea of Chinese), were handful of hotel trying to get us to book the overpriced to the city center but we kept on until we reached the taxi We have been advised to the public taxi on the outside was cheap (it cost us only compared to CNY500++ for a limo) and as as the expensive hotel limo not necessarily be safer). We picked the taxi at the stand and passed the details to the taxi driver who did not a dust of English but it was not a big problem. We had the hotel address in Chinese, my spoke fluent Mandarin and as we even had the numbers of our contacts at in case we got lost and we needed to communicate the details to the driver.

(The local taxis, Volkswagen Vista kind of reminded me of the Proton Sagas – boxy, and feels less sturdy)

in a Volkswagen Santana Vista standard model for the taxis I looked around but did not feel despite it being a Volkswagen quality looked too close to run down Chinese cars to a brand new, quality Golf).

Since we arrived just the morning peak hours, the was almost empty and this meant one thing – our taxi was on the highway. We were beginning to doubts if we were going to it in one piece. We were literally on to our dear life and wished we have taken the limousine We were saying silent hoping the “runaway” taxi slow down.

Thankfully God have heard our prayers – the driver slowed down as we the city centre – there was traffic on the road to keep the on a safer driving speed. The in the city were very and most drivers abide by the rules and I also noticed of them are driving Audi, and other premium European as well – not surprisingly China is one of the country in the world and certainly an eye for me after all that talk of too cheap cars in China same happened when I to Chennai ).

(Clean and inviting – kudos to the authority for making sure all is well maintained and clean and of greenery. The weather was really at this point of the year, so afternoon stroll walk in the was tempting)

We reached the hotel almost an hour drive the airport – it is a 4-star hotel, so service and cleanliness is top notch and the has one spectacular view. The only of the hotel is the bathroom – it is glass and you can see the bath tub from the bed. it is a “huge” problem when the room with another Deciding that it is too late or not to change the accommodation arrangements, we to work on a solution – we managed to the glass wall with and with another smaller inside the main bathroom, was almost assured. But still, it is a bad on the part of the hotel.

There was no time to take a – we had our work cut out for the day. A quick and a change of clothes and we were off for our At first we wanted to walk – our was not far from the hotel and since the was good, it was perfect for a walk but we changed our mind. We decided to a cab (cost us about CNY14) and the walking later for the day. time, there was no “runaway” to contend with.
