​I paddle SUP board in lake in Guangzhou city center: Haizhu Wetland

​I paddle SUP board in lake in Guangzhou city center: Haizhu Wetland
13 august 2020 I went for a paddle on Haizhu lake with Chinese friends.
This is a very beautiful place, just 3 metro stations away from Canton Tower.

(metro station Datang, then walk 30 minutes or take a taxi)
Beautiful even on foot, and even with the water it is generally a buzz!
I started my journey from the dragon boat station

Then I rowed around Haizhu lake, then to the river and back.

As a result, about 2.5 hours of intensive charging!

The route of 10 km eventually passed!
It’s a pity I forgot to take my GoPro with me)
I was very happy to try my new SUP – Gong SUP boards Couine Marie Cruising 11’6 as well as a carbon paddle and a racing fin.
View of skyscrapers, the Canton tower and the castle under construction

Do you want to come here with me next time?
The cost of the tour is 300 rmb for 2-3 hours on weekdays.
The price includes SUP board rental.

Btw i sell SUP boards from China –

With SUP board to Sanmen island, Shenzhen Dapeng Peninsula

With SUP board to Sanmen island, Shenzhen Dapeng Peninsula
25-26 july 2020 it was an amazing trip to the sea!
There were 17 people who wanted to go, so I found and book privat bus.

The price of the bus was divided equally. It cost 185 rmb per person for the round-trip bus. This non commercial event hosted by Russian Club Guangzhou.
Hotels near the beach all booked themselves.
25 july 2020 – 8.45 am we went from Guangzhou to Shenzhen to Dongchong beach 东冲海滩.
The way 200 km tooks 4,5 hours.
On the way, I conducted a quiz on knowledge of Guangzhou, 40 questions. Everyone got gifts-cards, and the winner of the quiz – beautiful magnets.
2 pm we arrived at the place.
Everyone checked into hotels and went to the sea!
Entrance to the beach costs 20 rmb.
I took my SUP board with me from Guangzhou, a lot of fruit, water and a dry bag, a life jacket.
After dinner at the hotel, I had lunch, inflated the SUP board and at 15.00 I came to the Dongchong beach.
Swam to the gorge from the sea

Chinese were sailing on SUP boards with dogs

In the evening there was a beautiful sunset.
I had dinner with mussel soup.
In the evening, i visited a local bar with surfers, fell asleep around 1 am.
On the second day, I got up at 6 am and walked around 2 hills.
The 1st photo (at the very top of the article) is a view from the mountain to Dongchong beach.
At 8 am we took a boat for 6x ppl for 400 rmb (round trip) to the island Sanmendao 三门岛.

Speed boat took us with a breeze for 15 minutes.
Entrance to the island cost extra 10 rmb per person. From the pier, the path to the beach took 12 minutes.
We rented tent on the beach.

There not a lot of people and water is perfect!
Everyone stayed on the beach and i inflated the SUP board in 10 minutes and went to explore the rocky shores.

The water is very clean!

Sea urchins and many fish live there.
Chinese tourist groups fishing from speed boats.

I found a very beautiful wild bay
And a small cave! The treasure was taken out before me.

At 1 pm on our call the boat took us back to Dongchong beach.
I had lunch at 3 pm and packed up.
At 16.50 we went back to Guangzhou.
We arrived around 21.20.
Very happy! A lot of emotions and new impressions!
Next time I go to Sanmendao island, I’ll take a SUP board around the island and spend the night in a tent!
But most likely it will be next year.
This year I will go to the sea to DoubleTree by Hilton Shanwei.
Btw i sell SUP boards from China –

​Drive car from Guangzhou to Shenzhen Dongchong beach. SUP board

Drive car from Guangzhou to Shenzhen Dongchong beach. SUP board
On June 25-27, 2020, my wife and I went to Shenzhen by car!

At first – to Hilton Shenzhen Futien.
I stayed here exactly a year ago with my mother.
Before the trip there was a long preparation: I bought SUP board (1000 rmb), tent (170 rmb) and other small things. We took a plastic isothermic container with fruit and drinks.
The journey from the center of Guangzhou to the center of Shenzhen took 1 hour and 52 minutes.
Toll roads cost about 86 rmb.
And the views are so cool on the way – along the Pearl river Delta!
After check-in at the hotel, we had lunch at my favorite restaurant, – DianDuDe.
View from the hotel pool of Hilton Shenzhen Futien.

The next day, June 26, 2020 we went to Dongchong beach on The Dapeng Peninsula.
Previously, there needed an online booking for drive car to Dapeng Peninsula, but now you do not need it.
On the half way, we stopped at Nan’ao for lunch.
Arrived at the beach, entrance 20 rmb per person + 30 rmb for place own tent.

For 10 minutes completely decomposed, put a tent.

Another 10 minutes to inflate the SUP board and hit the road – the first swim on the new Board!
In the tent was missing a fan on the batteries. Too stuffy!
On the beach there were a lot of Russians) Better to say in the water)
I also did not sit on the beach and spent almost all the time on the water. See my photos from GoPro

On June 27, 2020, we returned to Guangzhou through the Panyu district and had dinner at an interesting restaurant.
A huge hangar and a large dried-up tree in the middle.
The signature dish is baked chicken.
We had some great pork ribs.
At home, it took a long time to vacuum suitcases and wash them – everything was in the sand)
Next time (I think on July 2) I will go to the lake in Guangzhou to ride a SUP Board, I will write a post.
Again, we will go to the sea by car – to the hotel on the coast – Hilton Shanwei.
Btw i sell SUP boards from China –

My trip to Vietnam Danang 24-30 january 2020

My trip to Vietnam Danang 24-30 january 2020
My wife and i went to Danang, Vietnam, for Chinese new year.
We chose a destination based on the price of air tickets (prices for other Asian countries were very high)
All booked in the Chinese app Ctrip.
Pre-bought a SIM card on Taobao for Vietnam for only 30 rmb for 7 days! Were always with the Internet!
Alternatively, you can buy Internet in the Skytone app (but more expensive).
I also registered in advance in the Grab – for taxi app. Super useful and convenient, a must have!
Pre-purchased one-time passes to business lounges in Dragonpass app (you can buy cheaper through me
24 january 2020
The best thing that happened in the morning is the Premium lounge at Guangzhou airport. We used Dragonpass and had a good breakfast.
We flew with Hainan airlines to Danang International airport.
I used my APEC Business Travel Card to go without a queue, and my wife was offered to go without a queue for 10 rmb by an airport employee) Corruption in Vietnam from the first minutes of your stay in the country!
Then we withdrew local money from an ATM at the airport. 10 million dongs was enough for 6 days (taxi and food+restaurants).
I call taxi in Grab app and 12.30 we arrived to hotel Centara Sandy beach.

The hotel has a huge green area and a lot of swings, 2 swimming pools, a good beach with sun loungers and umbrellas, lifeguards.
Centara – this is a small chain of hotels: in Thailand, the Maldives (two) and a couple of other countries. The level a litle bit lower than Hilton hotels.
Checked in, rooms are good, then we went to the beach.
There was a red flag on the beach – you can’t swim, and the sea is not impressive (i knew it in advance).
But I swam and we went to the pool to take photos with GoPro + Domeport. The result is shown in the photo below.

We had dinner in the restaurant of our hotel
The rooms were given 0.3 liters of water per person. This is not enough, what to do?
Life hack – we went to the gym and got a lot of water in the cooler. We had thermoses and water bottles with us.
25 january 2020
For Breakfast, we took an electric mixer with us) and therefore drank fresh juice from a watermelon. Since there was no fresh juice for Breakfast) So we did it ourselves)

This bottle mixer have battery and charged via USB.
Very convenient for trips!
Then we went to the beach, the flag was yellow and we can swim!
I went surfing for 1 hour for just 100 dongs.
We took a taxi to Hoi An city, a tourist destination. Old architecture, pleasure boats, new year’s atmosphere.

In Vietnam the new year is celebrated according to the lunar calendar, so there were many things closed in the city.
We had an excellent BBQ dinner and returned on the Shuttle bus provided by the hotel.
26 january 2020
We went to an amusement park SunWorld Ba Na Hills. Tickets are not cheap, and need 1 hour drive there by taxi. Tickets were taken in the chinese app Ctrip.
I was surprised by the longest cable car in the world and huge cabins (all made in Switzerland).
But the weather at the top of the mountain was terrible: snow with rain and wind! Feels like minus 10.
Thats why no gorgeous photos from this bridge, as in the photo below.

We had a snack at a Korean McDonald’s called Lotteria.
Koreans apparently invested a lot in Vietnam and tourists here are almost all Koreans!
Then we went to an amusement park Fantasy World with slot machines.
There I tried rock climbing) there Were also a couple of rides. But the roller coaster was closed due to bad weather. We played for 4 hours different games and mashines and took a taxi to the hotel, but not to our hotel. We had a good dinner at the nearby Melia hotel.
27 january 2020
Near the hotel we visited Water Mountain with caves, temples, and a pagoda. Great place! We spent 2.5 hours there and climbed the caves.
We changed hotel to Cicilia hotel and Spa 4 stars (closer to the city, the hotel is 3rd line from the beach). For 300 rmb/per night is ok.
We walked along 2 beautiful bridges (one in the form of a dragon) and through the city center.
We dined in a vietnamese cafe with spring rolls and noodle soup (near the hotel).
28 january 2020
Not remember)
29 january 2020
We went to the Mall LotteMart, one of the largest in the city, bought snacks and drinks.
We went to the Mall Vincom Plaza.
We changed hotel to Nhat Minh Hotel for half day.
We went to the mountain with a statue of the goddess Guanyin and a pagoda. Linh Ung Pagoda – interesting place.
The statue of the goddess Guanyin is very high!
We went up to the pagoda.
Dinner in a beautiful vietnamese restaurant in the city center.
At 10 pm we were at the airport.
Departure at 23.55 by Air Macau from Danang to Macau.
30 january 2020
3 hours later we landed and took a taxi to Lotus Port and there they crossed the border to Hengqing Checkpoint.
Despite the fact that on 20 december 2019, a new building was built and passed, it is necessary to cross the border while in the old building!
We were taken to Guangzhou by a previously ordered driver (for 500 rmb and 2 hours). We were home at 6 am.
From 21 to 30 march 2020 i will fly to Phu Quoc island in Vietnam! There will be perfect sea and beach. Also will post article about it!

Tax refund guide for tourists in China

​Tax Refund guide for tourists in China. Tax Free policy
Since 1 october 2019 foreigner tourists can use Wechat Mini app We TaxFree Pass for digital tax refund of goods, which they bought in China.

Whats inside? It is very simple app, 2 pages and terms.
Terms of tax refund in China:
– duration of stay less than 183 days;
– since you bought any tax free goods, you should leave China in 90 days;
– to buy goods one of 21 categories (total 324 goods), including cosmetics, clothes, electronics, etc. List of shops in Wechat mini app, but there only Beijing. In fact, there are more cities, and there are in other cities, including Guangzhou (more at the end of this article).
– to buy goods in the store with the blue logo TAX FREE and fill out the special form.

– minimum purchase amount 500 rmb
– it is important not to open the packaging of goods (!!!) until tax refund
– you need to contact one of the tax refund offices. The list is in the app (again incomplete. Actually offices in all chinese airports).
– the refund will be from 8 to 11 percent of the purchase amount.
Bank of China take comission 2%. Real refund 6 – 9 %.
– money will instantly fall on your Wecha wallet (previously it took up to 5 working days to return)

Of course, this Wechat mini app is only needed for those who already have Wechat Pay connected, (have a Chinese Bank card).
If not, you can use the standard procedure-go to the window Tax Refund at the airport, before departure and get the money in cash (up to 10000 rmb) or a Bank card (from 10000 rmb, but not immediately).
In fairness, I must say that prices in China are high.
If you plan to buy-do it better in Hong Kong or Macau-because it is duty-free trade zone and everything is sold without VAT!
Alipay app have same mini app.
And now the 2nd part of this article. I have a brochure “VAT Refund Policy”, which I picked up at Guangzhou Baiyun airport.

What does it say?
In principle, all conditions are same.
You see a store with a blue logo TAX FREE and buy goods by requesting a special form. The list of shopping centers in Guangzhou is VERY large, and just all shopping centers are listed in this brochure. Tax refunds are carried out, as I wrote above, through a special window at the airport. They will look at the checks and check the integrity of the packages of purchased goods and make a tax refund. – the website of the tax service to Guangzhou (all in Chinese).
If you think the article is useful – support – repost to your Wechat moments! Thank you!
