Walking the Great Wall of China.

Not too big a suitcase as a lot of moving plus steps at train stations.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Very good but not a leisurely vacation. Should be graded higher. Would like to have spent more time in countryside.

We would like to thank Heather for her feedback, whilst we were pleased that she had a good vacation overall, we are sorry that she was left feeling that her trip had only a slight benefit to the local communities and environment. On this trip, for example, all of the hotels and cruise company we use are locally owned and staffed which is a way of boosting employment levels in the areas we visit. We also try to select accommodation for environmental awareness, which is still in its infancy in China. Whenever food is provided, ingredients are locally sourced and we try to eat at local restaurants or visit bazaars and food markets.
