Never Take Free Camp to China

I have just finished the camp that is organized by Troy University, AL from Hanban. It is two weeks camp in Beijin and Xi'an that camper only need to pay the flight ticket to get there, the camp is free. It sounds very good, isn't it? however, it is worse experience I ever had. We stay in a school hotel that is very dirty, rusted, missing tiles, the shower is above the toile, there is not a shower door to divide the toile and shower. rusted pipes on the wall, couple of the window glasses are missing, some covered by paper but some not. The weeds are everywhere on the play ground and seems never been clean up. None of the hotel housekeeper speak English. Our tour leader speak very little English and we cannot find her the whole time. We did visited some famous attractions there, but every place we only got 10mins to take pictures outside of the building. The tour guide speak such a bad English that no one knows what he is talking about. We almost have not much food choices, French fries and fry rice everyday. Most of the time we stay inside of the school learning Chinese. I guess that is the only good part. But there is not much to do after the class. For two weeks, I did not go to see lots places that I want to see. I will never go again to this camp. Don't waste your money on this free camp. I have done the trip with ARMADA last year,it is huge difference compare with this camp. ARMADA has the nicest people and have most fun trips with very reasonable price. You can find ARMADA on facebook
