A group of university mates decided to tour XinJiang, China together. Some mates have not been met since graduated 32 yrs ago. We made booking via Lesley Li in Urumuqi. It was a perfect arrangement for us.
All of us enjoy the trip and fellowships very much, including making new friends in XinJiang. We thanks our Chinese friends for the wonderful arrangement and friendships. With such good services and fun I will introduce Lesley’s company to anyone who wish to have an enjoyable tour to XinJiang, China.
