Our hosts found us a nice hotel that was located not too far from their apartment and shops. There was a lot going on in the surrounding neighborhood, especially at night when an outdoor market seemed to pop up out of nowhere. Kim and I have not really gotten used to Asian breakfast, so we usually opted for the McDonalds down the street. Their food is alright but I was mainly after the coffee. No one seems to drink coffee in China, only tea. I know it is probably healthier, but if I am going to walk around all day sightseeing, I need my morning caffeine fix.
Emily took us to a local restaurant that specializes in Peking Duck after we checked into the hotel and dropped our bags off. I had been craving this meal ever since we decided to visit China and I wasn't disappointed. We filled our bellies with some unbelievable food which all cost less then $50 for five people. This included a bottle of liquor and tons of left overs.
Our next stop was Quing Dao where Birth Father's factory is located. We will also include a separate post on this later on. We did get to enjoy a massage during our stay. You can get a massage for around $10.
