    The trip to Yunnan, China was satisfying, and the places we visited were unforgettable. Food were delicious, and the whole trip was indeed an experience. Special mentions and utmost gratitude goes to Syafiqah and Shai, and the local guide, Lee Shen, for taking really good care of my husband and I, when we were in hospital in Kunming. Thank you team for a good job well done. I guess we will see you again for another trip.


    Was surprised to know that the people in Yunnan speaks Mandarin and Arabic and that there are a huge community of Muslim here. Really learnt alot from this trip and enjoyed travelling with CWH!
