Crowne Plaza setting on so called famous shopping strip which onsisted of alcohol and cigarette shops.
The hotel itself was beautiful - rooms excellent, well appointed and comfortable. When we arrived went to the room to make a cup of coffee and amongst the tea, coffee, coffee mate etc were a couple of condoms. Had a bit of a laugh at that one.
Went into the room safe and sitting on top were 2 tins which contained gas masks - for terror attack or fire - almost half an hour of fresh air. OK - hadn't seen one of those since I was a kid in WW2 in England.
Now the road rules - OMG - you wait for the WALK SIGN and you start off to cross - be careful evidently cars have permission to go straight through and it is up to you to allow them or chance being run over. We found it was based on some American system whereby traffic keeps flowing. Found this in Shanghai as well but not so much. So many cars - so expensive - out of my league.More
