Well, you know that China has so much interesting tourism object to explore and today I'm going to Zhangjiajie. Actually, there's no flight to Zhangjiajie but you can go to the nearest city. Starting my journey from Jakarta to Chengdu by using Air China at 00.15 am. This flight is not direct but I ave to transit in Beijing then continue to Chengdu. Almost 13 hours trip and I finally arrive at Chengdu.
Arriving at Chengdu, I take train to Zhangjiajie. This trip need 10 hours trip. Well, it's very long trip and feel so tired. That's why when I arrive in Zhangjiajie I check in at Hotel directly and rest. On the next day, I go to Zhangjiajie National Forest acommpanied by my brother who live in China and go there by car.
