It is Approaching to the Year End

Tomorrow is the last day of the Chinese lunar year. After that, is 7 days of Spring Festival Vacation, from Feb 18 to Feb 24.

P.S. Yesterday, I got an email asking me about my suggestions of how to get to the Great Wall during his one week of Shanghai business trip. I know he will be surprised if I tell him that it is in another city (Beijing) which is two hours of flight away. The Great Wall is still about one or two hours’ drive from the airport.

The similar questions I received from email were:

1. How much does it cost to hire a taxi to go from Shanghai to Chengdu.

2. Does Shanghai has electricity supply. …

I am used to questions like this. Sometimes, people just need some basic information about a completely new city. I happen to be willing to help.

  1. 1) $3.50

    2) Yes, 6 hours a day, 6 days a week.

    Hey, a stupid question deserves a stupid answer.

  2. Happy New Year!!!

    will very many people still work during the New Year week long holiday period? how many stores will stay open?

  3. Most store will still open in Shanghai, and some stores open on extended hours. it is the shopping time.

    Well. I don’t really think those are too stupid question. It is normal. For example, I really didn’t know whether I can go to the Great Ocean Road from Sydney by bus. I checked and find out it is even farther than from Shanghai to Great Wall..

  4. Personally, I pack enough electrons in my suitcase whenever I travel to a foreign country, in case there is a power outage.
