Only a few hours from Shanghai, it took me 2 years to discover Shengsi Island. With advice from this city weekend article, and article on CNN and some blogs from a Shanghai bike club we set off!
Getting there took longer than expected… it was golden week and the fast boat tickets had sold out. I’d really advise getting boat tickets in advance if you want to ensure a speedy trip!
Once there, it was a bit tricky to get a taxi, none of the drivers claimed to know where we were going. But eventually we checked in to our guest-house (booked through ctrip) and got down to some good old-fashioned relaxing (and eating of course).
A detour through Zhengzhou airport, all for a cheap ticket.
Zhengzhou, city of 8 million people, capital of Henan province, big on manufacturing and mining.
