It is located in the Wudaokou area. (close to the Wudaokou subway station, very convenient if you take the subway here) I like the Salmon Sushi here. Very delicious. 🙂 The sea food chafing dish is also a very good choice for you. It is enough for 3 people. You can try the fresh fruit juice if you want. The cost here is about 45 rmb for one person.
If you are more of the type of person who wants to travel, but hates sticking to an itinerary, traveling Europe by train is also great for you. You can pick up passes as opposed to full tickets. These passes will allow you more freedom as they are use when you need to types of passes. The do no need to be used at a certain time on a specific date. You can stay as long as you like if a particular place strikes your fancy. While traveling on the InterRail, you may decided to get off at a stop that had some particular site you noticed on the train, you can do this with ease and with no penalty.
Australia of course, does have its drawbacks, the same as any country. Prices for most items are much higher than what Americans pay for the same goods. One Americanism that has caught on in Australia, much to Australia’s detriment, is the sales tax and tipping. At one time tipping was rarely heard of so if you’ve got an old city guide and they say tipping is not the custom, you should chuck it and be prepared to tip.
I’m an Aussie, having been born in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland on Australia’s east coast. Although I spent most of my formative years in the USA my Aussie family and I have remained very close and I can speak Strine with the best of them.
Airline prices also fluctuate over a 24 hour period believe it or not so it’s important to check airline prices throughout the day and even after you book to see if you can get cheaper flight to Vegas. Also consider looking at what airline deals there are the day before and after you plan to travel.
All in all, I would say that if you are looking for airline travel cheap, deals on cruises, inexpensive hotels, or whatnot, anything to do with traveling, this book is for you. I’m pretty sure just about anyone who puts the ideas into action will save more than the price of the book, so that makes it worthwhile to me.
