Here’s the revised itinerary we received this past Tuesday. The first thing to notice is that it’s wrong–we’re returning on November 5th, not the 4th. Confidence-inspiring, ain’t it?
As I understand it, we’ll be in Hong Kong on the night of the 4th, giving us an extra day there. We didn’t think we’d have much time for sightseeing in HK, so this actually works out better for us.
The other interesting thing is the trip to Guilin. While the guidebook doesn’t have anything nice to say about Nanning, it takes 4 pages to rave about the scenery around Guilin and the Lijiang river tour.
