Coco Park: A Night Out in Shenzhen

Though it was difficult, I managed to get out of the St. Regis tub and head out for a night on the town. Hong Kong has Lan Kawi Fong. Shenzhen has Coco Park, a bar district with something for everyone.

Park Hyatt Guangzhou: The Sweet Upgrade

Air China Business PVG-KIX: Different Plane, Same Product

The trick of my $200, 30,000 US AIR Miles ticket was that all flights must be on Air China metal. I've flown Air China many times and for the most part have not been impressed. I was excited that this flight was on an A321 versus the standard 737. Perhaps this would make the flight different.

The Uber China App Workaround

Sanya! Where to Party Guide

Sure, most people come to Sanya for the sea and the water sports but not TPOL. I came to drink by night and sleep on the beach by day. Unlike the rest of mainland China, there is last call in Sanya. And it comes surprisingly early. By 3AM everyone's gotta go home or head to the beach.
