A Belgium family //"Home of Avatar" in Hunan Province//July trip 2014
Dear Julie, just wanted to let you know we had a great trip to zhangjiajie("home of Avatar"). Frank is a very good guide. He understood we liked to hike and walk, not stand in line for hours waiting to take a cable car. The whole area was very crowded with local tourist, but we understand it's peak season… We would recommend friends however to go in September or October (not during golden week of course) when there are less people and prices for food etc are lower but the weather is still nice. If you have other clients who like to go there and like to go hiking, I would definitly recommend Frank as a guide. He is local and knows the small trails and nice, less crowded area's. Thanks for all your work in organizing the trip ! rgds, Nathalie and Bert. I don't think we will travel during the October Holiday, we just came back from Europe. Thanks anyway Best regards, Bert en N.
