Voice of Travelers to China

Business is Business in China

I booked my air ticket to China from Cairo International Airport through Egypt Air; the flight was very long, but the in-flight service was great and entertaining. I can say that I highly recommend Egypt Air for traveling to China. There were no delays in the Beijing Capital Airport; the plane arrived punctuality. Our Chinese business associates were there waiting for us when we arrived, and then we booked a bus ticket to the hotel. The hotel confirmed our stay instantly, and we enjoyed the delicious Chinese tea as a welcome drink in the hotel. There were many things to do in China, but shopping was what I did most, as everything is cheap out there. It was a nice business trip; I came back home with a very tight and fruitful business deal. China is a profitable ticket. When my co-workers asked me about my trip to China, I said that the locals in China are very friendly, civilized, and hospitable. And when they asked me about the costs, I answered “VERY CHEAP”.

Beijing restaurants are delicious

I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Beijing, one of the top-rated hotels in China. The lounge is very relaxing and a great place to get all of your work done; good internet speed and you can grab your breakfast there. All the staff was friendly and helpful. I booked a ticket to Jingshan Park, this place offers the best vantage points in China. It is a quiet park where you can relax and escape the hustle. In addition, you can book a city tour bus in China to explore all the nearby places. China is rich with history and culture and full of attractions that you will never forget about. Hence, booking a ticket to China will let you see China as if you have never seen it before.

The great China and the great wall of China

One of the best tourist attraction spots in China is the Wall of China, it is the longest wall in the world. I’m sure that this place is from the Seven Wonders of the World, and if it is not, then it should be! Thus, booking your ticket to this place is necessary. This wall spans from the west to the east coast of China, totaling around 5,000 KM, which is incredible and unbelievable. In addition, I booked a ticket to the Imperial Palace; it was a spectacular parade of ancient Chinese architecture compared to the Buckingham Palace in the UK and the Kremlin in Russia. It’s a treasure full of historical and cultural vestiges. My ticket to China was fruitful, full of history, nice people, and great culture.
