Dear Sara

Our tour group greatly enjoyed our trip to Huangshan and Jingdezhen. The weather in Huangshan was perfect and the views spectacular. We also enjoyed the hotel (great location and good food) and the crowds were OK in the early morning and the evening, so staying the night was the right decision.

We enjoyed our visits to Xidi and Hongcun, one well developed and commercial, the other in a more "natural" state, so a good contrast. We could have done with more time, as our visits were a bit hurried.

Jingdezhen was interesting, particularly the old kiln and museum and we had a great time shopping. The hotel, KaiMenZi (which I chose) was not good. Poor food, poor service and no possibility of buying either a drink or a coffee after 6pm. The location also meant we could not wander around the town in the evening which we would have liked to do. I'm not sure what the alternatives were. The visit and lunch at SanBao Ceramic Centre was the highlight.

The driver was excellent and the coach comfortable. Our guide's English was good and we had no trouble communicating. He was also very open to our suggestions and flexible enough to change plans. His food ordering was excellent, as we had specific requirements for lots of vegetables!

Kind regards,
