Epic China 9th October 2011

Welcome Guest, to make a post on the forum you need to login or register.

Hi all,

We are booked onto this trip and wanted to say hi to anyone else who is also booked onto this trip before we go. Unfortunatly, we are going to be on a different flight than everyone else but apparently it "should" get us into Hong Kong only 5 minutes after everyone else! Hopefully it does otherwise we have to make our own way from the aiprort to the hotel. Starts off the trip with a bit of fun i guess!!!!!

Anyway, hopefully someone reads this who is going!

Yep - booked on the trip - but with additions !!!!
will be flying out earlier - arrive on the friday - so like you, it could be an adventure just getting from the airport to the Hotel - some friends of mine are living in Hong Kong and are getting married that weekend in the bay - so will be attending that before meeting up with the mine adventure group when they arrive - i am staying in the same hotel as the adventure group so will able to catch up before we head out of Hong Kong and the great chinese adventure - looking forward to it

Hello!!

Just thought I would say hello! We're also booked on the Epic China Trip. We're going on the Finnair flights with the group so hope that you all do find the group/hotel ok and that your flight does get in at the same time (fingers crossed for you!)

We are very excited for the Chinese adventure - especially the Panda Centre for me!!! The reviews on review centre and the pics look brill.

Hi I'm Anna, Its nice to all start chatting before we embark on our Adventure. I am also booked on the Finnair flights from Heathrow so will be looking forward to meeting some of you hopefully in the Airport before we take off. As for Visa's and flights, the staff at the Adventure company have been really helpful with that and have sent a pile of paperwork to work through indicating all the stuff we need to apply for one. As far as injections are concerned they advise to have these about 8 weeks before you go, we will also need to take anti malarials but the good news is we dont need Yellow Fever! This will be my second holiday as a Solo traveller and really cant wait to meet you all. My last holiday was in Egypt and I had an absolutely fab time with the group of people I met on that trip. Highlights of this trip for me I think will be the amazing and varied food I will get to try, (I'm a total foodie) a revisit to Hong Kong which is out of this world and the people are amazingly friendly and the Yangste River cruise. I'm really sad but I love that HSBC advert with the cormorant fishing. Speak soon A.

Hi All,

Only 6 weeks and 4 days to go, not that I can't wait or anything ;) ! Finally sorted my new luggage, Visa and Injections so just have to pack now. Looking forward to meeting everyone and having some good discussions about places you'd recommend visiting. Barry, Peru sounds good so I would be interested in hearing more. There is now 15 booked on the trip altogether, 5 solo males, 4 solo females and 3 couples with an age range from the 20 - 80's so we should have a really good group dynamic. See you all soon. A

Jabs sorted
visa sorted
payed up but not spent up yet !!!!!
are we nearly there yet !!!!
reading the trip notes weekly - and over 3 weeks away from work - cannot wait - seems to be a good mix of people on the trip - apparently at the panda reserve - if you want to cuddle a panda its £90. sticks recommended on the great wall of china and mountain trip.
see you all in Hong Kong - who is getting the first round in !!!!

I'd rather eat one than cuddle one for £90. Apologies animal lovers-its just not me :)! Although I have to admit they did show them on a news story recently and they dont appear to be that cuddly. Its great news about the new direct flights- I was worried that I might end up spending 3 weeks in Helsinki instead. Well looking forward to meeting up. Barry mines a Corona with lime seeing as your already going to be there. Ha! Ha! Enjoy the wedding. A
