On May 7, my wife and I left for Guangxi, Beihai. We already booked our flight tickets and hotels in April. Our flight to Beihai is at 14:50. The flight from Shanghai to Beihai takes 3 hours. After we reached Beihai, it was around 17:40. Beihai Fucheng airport is a very small airport. After we collected our baggage, we take the airport bus to Beihai downtown. It takes around 30 minutes.

After we checked in our hotel, Vienna International Hotel, it was around 8:00 pm. My wife and I decided to go around nearby the hotel. Though Beihai is a very small city, it is very crowded at night. It may be because our hotel is located in the center of the city, Beibuwan Square. My wife got KFC ice cream cone. She felt that they gave more ice cream.

At last, we went to a food court. We ordered some local food. The big snail is a little smelly. But I saw other people ordering it as well. Therefore, I continue to eat. The glutinous chicken and seafood soup are very delicious too. Whole dinner cost us ¥115, around SGD 21.00. It is very cheap, isn’t it?

We take bus 3 and reach silver beach after 30 minutes. The bus fee is very cheap, ¥2 for each person, around SGD 0.50. The beach is not very crowded. My wife and I take a walk along the beach. It is a beautiful day.
