August Adenture Looks to me like Emily and the crew over at Ctrip have had themselves an active week, what with biking to work in Shanghai, counting votes for mustachioed Ctrippers (funny!), launching a convenient currency conversion feature and putting together some super hot deals that give the summer sun a run for its money. Let's a take a look-see...

The adventures start here with no end of great flight deals all over China and up to 60% off many domestic flight routes throughout August. Wherever you're headed, Ctrip will save you some RMB—and not just on flights: the new hotel multi-currency feature also helps you keep track of what you're spending when booking hotels, making currency conversion "well 1 euro is about 10RMB" mistakes, a thing of the past. Used up all your hols and are chained to Shanghai for the the summer months? Fear not, Ctrip to the rescue! Check yourself into the Fairmont Peace Hotel for three nights and they'll give you a fourth absolutely free! The most historic of all the swanky Bund-side behemoths, the Fairmont Peace Hotel re-opened its doors this month after three years of renovations--whether you're just visiting China or looking for a few days of 5-star indulgence, this is an offer not to be missed. If you haven't already, pay a visit to the Ctrip Summer Mustache comp pages and have a good old giggle at the pics before helping us choose which is worthy of winning all those awesome prizes. Who will reign victorious? Expo-stache? Underwater-stache? Dog with 'stache? Cast your vote! This week we've also gotten to know a whole lot more about the team: Coley Dale waxes lyrical on the two-wheeled approach to commuting and makes a pretty convincing argument for biking to work; saving time and money and keeping fit. Sounds good to me, but then again I can also see his bike from where I sit and it's a much more serious piece of kit than my ol' rust bucket and bell that just about gets me to the tube and back. Before I even think about following in his tracks I'll be needing an upgrade. SEO guru and master plant-waterer Neil Ma is in the spotlight, revealing a cheeky sense of humor and penchant for fried scorpions, and interns Chris and Alex have been busy exploring the city and discovering the joys of KTV in the Intern Diaries. That's all for now folks, we'll be back for more next week - have a great weekend!
