Art Star Hotel 200 Yuan Double room.
Business floor has handsome ladyís ready for business.
The first person I met in the train was a Christian female vigour. She told me that I was a brave person to travel in China and not speaking the language. So I was prepared for the worst. It was a train ride of 2 and a half hour I guess. Suddenly there was the border and customs. I had some herbal cigarettes on me so I had to run when I saw the sniffing dog sniffing somebody else. Ok China here I am. Yes there is still a border between Hong Kong and China. I needed a visa for China but not for HK and Macao. I ordered mine at the Amsterdam Visa Bureau. It was 65 euro with all costs.
Getting to the train station you see a lot of urbanisation around. At the station there were some touts who offered hotel rooms. I picked the Art Star Hotel that was 190 Yuan (19 Euro) for a double room. It had all the luxury I need TV, shower, bath, free Internet and two beds. This town is really big and I have never seen a picture or heard of it before. A pretty modern town in a lot of ways, and it has a fine subway system to.
