Checking into Lanzhou Ying Bin Hotel for Amazing Bath in Lanzhou, China during Mysterious Silk Road Tour in China

Hahah it’s only been one night sleeping aboard the Deluxe Oriental Express Train travelling last night from Xi’an to Lanzhou (arriving this morning!), yet there’re complains about NOT being able to bathe in the Train cos there isn’t any warm or HOT water at all, except freezing COLD water!!

As for myself, I’m pretty ok cos weather’s been pretty cold since this morning, & remembering my uni days back in Australia where I never bathed for a couple of days in a row, cos weather was simply too cold during Winter hahahha!! And really I still smelt sososoo good heheheh!!!

Nevertheless, cos of the complains & requests from Tour members, our Chinese Tour Guide decided to let us check into Lanzhou Ying Bin Hotel - well, for an additional charge (to ourselves!) at 200RMB for a Room, which I shared with my brother-in-law Ah Hia!!

Not too bad, though just for 2 hours, our whole Tour group has a good resting time having an amazing bath (well, actually just a Shower!!) in the huge Bathroom, & sleeping for a while on the comfortable bed (no Train bed for now!!) at the Hotel………….

    Wow! Looks like you have quite an interesting trip to China in a fairly exotic location. Would be interesting to explore the less well known places in future. I’ve been to mostly cities so far like Xiamen, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Beijing.

    Thank you Walter, yes I’ve had the most culturally exciting Trip to the Silk Road of China!!

    And yes I’d love to explore all destinations in the world be they famous or less popular, as I believe each & all places have their own special unique taste & flavour!!
