The company did well last year, so early tis yr, the company announced that the support staff will be going 4 incentif trip. They sent us a survey first to c which country we all wana go. We simply have to grade from 1 to 4 of places, ie. Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bali & Vietnam. After the survey the committee found out the vote for Shanghai and Hong Kong trip were equally same. Finally the committee decided to give us 2 choices. I can tell u, its so hard for us to choose. Of course there were mixed feelings and all.
I thot i'd wait for the itinerary before i decide. But my initial respond was Shanghai cos of the nice scenery places. Later on when the itinerary arrived, i instantly chose Hong Kong!! Instantly, i thot, yes, i wanna go 'shopping'!! And the trip also include Shenzhen, China. So i get to see sum part of China! Then i went back home and discussed with hubby. He also said go ahead with Hong Kong if my intention is to do shopping. Furtheremore, he said he would not want to go there. He said wat a better way then to go there with my girlfrens from office...awww...he's so thotful!!. He said maybe in future we don't mind going to Shanghai together but he would never have Hong Kong in his itinerary. He also said better go and see Disneyland cos he knows i've got a kid in me. Altho he said it would not be as great at Disney in LA (he's been there) but at least i get to see Mickey n Minnie...hehehe..
We'll be going in Mid March, not long, just 5days 4nites. We'll have 2 nites in Shenzhen and another 2 in Hong Kong. In Shenzhen, we'll get to go to "Window of the World" in a miniature. We get to c a mini Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal or the Pyramids in mini-sizes. They also have 'Splendid of China" where its the largest miniature park of Chinese ancient buildings ie. Great Wall of China, Imperial Palaca, etc. A must in Hong Kong is of course the Victoria's peak, Ladies' market, Lantau island and Disneyland. Its going to be cold there so we have to pack some sweaters to prepare for the cool wind.
Shanghai trip will consist of Hangzhou. They will visit The Bund, the lively riverside promenade, and Oriental Pearl TV Tower - the tallest structure in Asia. They get to visit Pagoda of Six Harmonies, the biggest wood tower in China and Ling Yin Temple, the most ancient monastery in Hangzhou. Wu Zhen Water Village, a water town with 1000 years of history. Jade Buddha Temple and Huangpu Night River Cruise, one of the best way to see both old and new Shanghai. Visit to Yu Garden, Long Jing Tea Farm and Silk Factory. So you see, i didn't opt for this trip cos there will be a lot of travelling (the long journey) plus a lot of sight seeing.....me want shopping!!
There will be about 90 pax going for the Shanghai trip while Hong Kong will consists of about 35 people....better still!! I prefer lesser crowd, hehehe. All SOD girls going for HK except for 'S', she's been there before hence she chose Shanghai.
For the Sales Force Team, Marketing Department and Medical Department, they all get to choose to go to 3 other destinations, ie. Hokkaido, Japan, Central Europe and Eastern Europe....wah lagi best woo!! Watever it is, we all are greatful of this good fortune.
