G in China: Dongguan | Hangzhou

From Hong Kong, G visited Dongguan (northwest of Hong Kong) and stayed at the brilliant (and empty) Dongguan Hyatt. He said most of the hotels he stayed at in China were big, beautiful, full of staff but empty of tourists. Also in Dongguan he visited this indoor amusement park that was also devoid of people. Very strange eh?! Dongguan is home to the world’s largest shopping centre so it goes without saying what G did here! It is also the center of the world’s furniture industry.

  4. Wow that’s a really extravagant hotel room! And an indoor rollercoaster? At least, it won’t get shut down due to rain or snow? Still … I would think an indoor rollercoaster creates hella noise …
