When travelling round new and unfamiliar countries you want to make the most of your time. Whilst in China earlier this year, seeing everything I had hoped was not possible. I wanted to make sure that my experience was not only memorable but also non regrettable, although this meant spending more money than originally planned.
An example is of the Chengdu research base of giant panda breeding. I flew especially from Xi’an to Chengdu, a rather costly flight to see the iconic and adorable symbol of China, the wonderful Panda.
