The scene was stunning and beautiful, however service of staff at photo booth was atrocious. He was playing mobile games instead of doing his job. Shouted at us for asking hin questions. We did not paid to be shouted. 景色优美,就被没素质的员工给毁了。一边工作,一边玩手游,管理公司也真行,这种人也敢请。

Dujiangyan Irrigation system is a must see! Incredibly fast, furious (and gourgeously b!ue-green) Min River caused many floods to the peoples who lived here over 2000 yrs ago. So, the local mayor at that time devised a wonderfully clever way to control the flows of...More
