Business trip To Taiyuan

My name is Janice, I work for a textile company in New York. We renovate homes with new tile finishes including ceramic and wooden materials. My company sent me to taiyuan to source for new suppliers for our merchandise. They booked me a ticket in economy class via American airlines. The ticket had one stop in Dubai International Airport for around four hours before we could proceed to Liuting International Airport in Taiyuan. The return ticket wa by the same airlines as our company has a mutual agreement with them to facilitate cheaper ticket rates. When we arrived in Taiyuan excitement filled me.

School trip through Asia

Our school had a trip for us through different cities in China. They included Taiyuan, Guangzhou and Guangdong. Being business students we were part of those invited for the business trip to Taiyuan. We were to experience the business conference in the city during that time of the year where manufacturers from all over Asia met with potential customers from different parts of the world. Our business teacher wanted us to understand how business works in China through the trip to Taiyuan. I was excited when I boarded British airways for my trip to Taiyuan.

No One wanted to leave Asia to go home when time came to book the ticket back.
