10-1-2009 (Saturday) Sunny (Hezhou, Gupo Hill)
To the east of Guilin lies Hezhou and today should be an easy day as we would only visit Gupo Hill National Forest Park. This place is now famous as it was picked for the location shooting of HK television drama series. The stage performance of Liu San Jie has been halted temporary because of winter. Our guide flatly refused to refund us the tickets money but insisted to replace it by giving us a tour to some unknown place. We all gave her a hard time till she had no choice but to refund us.
The hotel nestled in the hills was very empty apart from our tour group. It is not easy to fork out a living during the off-peak travelling seasons.
