First of all I would like to say a few words about the Gold Hotel. The staff and help were top notch. The room was clean and housekeeping was more than helpful anytime I needed something. Second, the restaurants in the hotel were great. I did have an interpreter with me most of the time, but even those few times I didn't, the staff was helpful.
I spent Christmas over there and found that the Chinese people were as excited about the holiday as any American kid. The malls were big and beautiful and the people were very curious about me as I was about them. When I went through Dongmen Mall, I felt safe even though it is well known for pickpockets.
The city is huge and easy to get lost so writing down name of certain locations (in Chinese) is helpful. Taking a taxi is a must. This will take the place of any thrill ride you have ever been on. I can't believe that I didn't witness any road rage. They must know something Americans don't.
I can't wait to go back and visit other areas of China.
Surviving China on two words (hello and thank you) and an interpreter,Steve
