THE REAL DEAL

Something new is now available on National Radio a China section. Being new there will be some adjustments to be made. As this section expands with material we will segment it down into various subdivisions. At present we are including the information that we have acquired this year 2011 with much of it being travel ad business related.

Much more is to come of our travel experiences in a country that was previously behind the iron curtain. In our 26 days of touring primarily in the major cities the eastern part of the country Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai we experienced some sweet and sour incidents. Many of the problems were derived from a lack of communication.

With language making a difference we encountered that a majority of those employed in the tourist industry presumably in the business with deal with tourism were ill prepared to do so given their lack of English language skills. The flip side of that is that we speak zero Chinese but learned a few words along the way.

The most pleasant experiences were the people. They were fantastic in offering help although they spoke little to no English. In the coming months we will share with you some of those stories and in the process offer tips as to the who, what and where to do business with those with the business that are prepared to do so with staff that are competent enough to communicate with an English speaking tourist.

Our purpose is not to degrade China but to assist those of you who plan to travel to the country where the bumps in the road are as well as show you the way to the green lights. The upcoming stories will include our brush with death with the bullet train crash that occurred in July. There are problems with banking due to the Chinese system of doing business with their bias ways of taking care of business emerging in the process.

We'll share our experiences in visiting the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden Palace. For a tourist time is precious and wasting time for service in a bank can cancel out an entire day's plan which was intended for seeing the sights of China and other tourism plans.

There are some companies that apparently think that you come to China to spend time and money to have problems. The reality is one can have problems for FREE why spend money for them. In China this situation repeatedly surfaced. We will share our experience with a major player in the tourism which engages in some questionable practices.

We didn't sell out for advertising and perks. In going into the trenches we experienced the real deal and are not selling the propaganda that is delivered elsewhere.

Our experience in booking travel while within the country can be helpful for those travelers who prefer to go with their own flow as opposed to being rushed and on the move to accommodate a strict schedule.
