Can you identify today’s city?

 

shanghai-by-night

Noel Coward stayed in the city while writing “Private Lives”, comedy about divorced couple who, while honeymooning with their new partners, discover that they are staying in adjacent rooms at the same hotel.  Here is a quick reminder of Coward’s magnificent wit :

Amanda: What have you been doing lately?

Elyot: Travelling about – I went around the world, you know.

Amanda: Yes, I know. How was it?

Elyot: The world?

Amanda: Yes.

Elyot: Highly enjoyable.

Amanda: China must be very interesting?

Elyot: Very big, China.

Amanda: And Japan?

Elyot: Very small.

Amanda: And did you eat shark’s fins and take off your shoes and use chopsticks and everything?

Elyot: Practically everything…

Happy Monday!

The travel professional with years of experience in the travel industry – in guiding, reservations, operations, contracting, customer service and product development – and have travelled extensively in Asia and Eastern Europe not just on holiday but also for work, inspecting hotels, visiting attractions and seeing exactly what each destination has to offer. The only way I could do this properly was with my own guide, car and driver and this inspired me to create my own range of customised private day tours for other people to be able to explore in-depth and learn to love their destination as much as I do.
