Now, back to the fun parts. Having experienced a flat bed for the night, you’d imagine I was fresh and ready to explore on landing day. However we land early morning, which, when coupled with the horrendous 8 hour time change, completely wipes you out. I often choose to nap for a few hours before meeting the rest of the crew for dinner and drinks, however this is also the perfect time to visit the famous Chinese markets for those needed knock offs. When prescription glasses are £20, you can’t really say no to a shopping trip. My personal favourite is Pearl Market, but tenders can be pushy and aggressive, so it’s so important to be in a group, watch your belongings and have your wits about you.
