The White Lion Hotel staff and accommodations were perfect for your family of 6 (kids from 6-13) to experience China. What made it so ideal? Location, location, location - plus the quality service of the staff. Although most American's will need to be ready for a grade above a backpackers hotel, the benefits far out-weight those amenity limitations. What are the specific benefits? The location is so close to so many restaurants - all affordable and with a variety that goes from American food to European to traditional Chinese. The location is close to so many natural beauties - Moon Hill, the caves, and just looking around at the unique mountains is enough to take your breadth away. The location is also perfect for shopping and conversing with Chinese in English (given the many English language schools in the area). I've been around the world several times, and I can't wait to get our family back to the White Lion Hotel. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
