This last week the good folks over atCtripper have been looking ahead and looking out for both your business and pleasure travel needs.
Let's take pleasure first. October holidays are just 5 weeks away and the clock is a-counting down to beach and cocktail hour. If you still haven't booked your place in the sun, now's the time to do it... and don't feel guilty, you've been working your butt off all summer and it's time to give that tush a rest! With flight routes to all manner of sun-soaked, beach destinations across Asia, and hundreds of great hotels, Ctrip'll transport you to beach bum heaven.
Now, let's get down to business. October 14 to November 4 sees thousands of business types from around the world flock to Guangzhou for the Canton Fair, China's biggest and best quality trade fair. This is a mammoth event and if you're headed that way, it's wise to plan ahead. Take advantage of Ctrip's great prices and book your Guangzhou flights and hotels as early as possible.
We've been doing some decorating of late over here at Ctrip HQ—want to know what a visual representation of the Ctrip English department looks like? Chen Bing introduces our new culture wall. We also meet Ctrip inbound activities mastermind, Leo Liang, a man who'd take a spaceship full of cash to climb the Himalayas.
