Where I've Been

 

Favourite Holidays

 

UAE - 2017

I was lucky enough to go on a China Southern Airlines famil, I experienced their Business Class and First Class - and highly recommend this.
We visited Dubai - this is an incredible place, huge buildings I especially enjoyed Atlantis Aquaventure Park, a helicopter flight over Dubai, going up Burj Khalifa and seeing the fountains dancing from the balcony of The Palace Downtown Dubai - the most incredible accommodation.
We travelled to Abu Dhabi, and visited the Ferrari World - if you like rollercoasters be prepared to go on the fastest and longest rollercoasters - this is certainly an experience!  In Abu Dhabi we visted the Grand Mosque and visited an Island getaway.  The desert safari from Dubai was an amazing experience. 
I highly recommend the UAE as a destination in its own right, the sights, sounds, and aromas are such an enlightening experience.

South China - 2019

As part of the China Southern Family we also visited China.
Our first stop was Guanzhou, we stayed at the Hilton which was great, and did a city tour by bus.  The city was greener than I had imagined it would be.  We went up the Canton Tower and had awesome views over the city.

We then caught the high speed train to Yongzhou, going over 200km an hour felt like just a normal 80km train ride.  We stayed at yongzhou resort which was a peaceful resort set on the river.  We went bike riding, the area is covered in limestone cliffs, and the scenery is superb.  We went to a night show - wow I have never seen anything like this it was incredible, a must do if you are in the area.
