Wonderfully remote China location. Karamay is one of the neatest and cleanest oil towns you will ever visit. Warm and friendly people work on 'apparent time' - effectively two hours behind Beijing (although China has only one official timezone).
Second visit to this central hotel, run by PetroChina for it's local oilfield visitors. Clean and functional rooms, hard beds are good for anyone with a bad back. One or two western tv channels if you can figure out how to work the tv. Plain and straightforward breakfast and lunch. Banquet dinner very good, especially Xinjiang specialities such as lamb kebabs. General lack of cold beer.
