There was not much of a trip on 22nd April as there was another road trip to another place, Yantai, which would be a 3.5-hour ride. However, the tour guide brought us to a shop, where he could claim for commission with any purchases made within his tour group, us. I bought a set of knives for my mother as a Mother’s Day gift.
We reached Yantai in time for lunch.
After lunch, our next stop was Penglai Pavilion (PengLai Ge). Below are the pictures that were taken by me with my sucky Nikon camera lol
The walk began here
Puzhao Tower also called the Lightning Tower was first used for navigation at night. Was rebuilt in 1958 and together with Binn Tower (not sure where it is located), it makes up the characteristic symbol of Penglai Fairyland.
Below are the shots taken from the location of this tower.
And we walked further..
We went to another shop where I bought three sets of pajama for my brothers and myself. I burnt a very big hole in my pocket today but I spent them wisely :)
Before we went to have our dinner, we dropped by our tour guide’s place! It is new to all of us lol I am not sure if this tour guide is saying the truth or he is really quite, well, rich? He said he has 4 apartments and this is just one of it, where his mom stays.
We came to China for many times but this is our first time to visit our tour guide’s house! --- one of the senior citizens.
Oh, we had another interesting hotel to stay. The room’s bathroom has no door but shower and toilet are separated (by a glass). However, there is a sliding door but as you can see, that door is transparent! lol Imagine one is doing business in toilet while the other one is showering and another one brushing teeth at the basin lol
However, today was not my day. During dinner, I sat next to this lady who complained the most. I find her very very annoying. You see, it is rare to find someone who successful entered into my ‘Annoying List’. She is labeled ‘very’ annoying some more. Higher ‘rank’, huh?
I know I complained a lot, here lol
