It's that time of the week again when we pop across to visit the Ctrippers and see what's been going down at Ctrip English...
Planning for the October hols is high up on the agenda. Take Emily's advice and book early, it'll save many a stressful hour of searching for a last minute ticket to anywhere you can get your hands on, and a chunk of cash.
Of course, our Emily's a girl who knows what she wants and what she wants this October is Bali. For those planning to stick to the mainland and Sanya or Xiamen, a cosmopolitan city-break in Shanghai, a culture-fest in Xi'an, Qingdao, Chengdu or Beijing or just some inspiration, you're sure to find it at Ctrip.
Of course, some of us are here for work, not pleasure and China presents some unexpected and unique challenges, even for the most seasoned of travelers. Anyone trying to navigate their way along this often daunting path can find all manner of handy pointers in tips for a successful business trip to China.
We also Xinjiang, if only she could remember!
Finally, you can't have failed to notice the mustache mania that's been gripping the Ctripper community over the last few months—Coley Dale gives us the low down on the who, the what and the why of this quirky social media experiment and how it's just the start of what's to come.
