Roaming China with Intrepid Travel

Last week I returned from a three week trip around China and Hong Kong with Intrepid Travel. It was a brilliant itinerary (see below) and Tina – our group leader – was exceptional. She was thoroughly organised, really patient and a great laugh. It was a small group of nine adventure seekers who were really good fun – we were all out to enjoy ourselves.

I’d wanted to visit China and Hong Kong for a long time and gave myself a deadline to do it before next year’s Olympics.
