We stayed for 2 days in Nanfang Yi Yuan(NYY) hotel in June 2011. While the rooms are big, the hotel 2 lifts smelled of fermented tofu whenever we took the lift down to the ground lobby. There appeared that the cooking ventilation ducts of the hotel kitchens are connected to the lifts vents for the smell to be overbearing.. The hot water shower system cannot be controlled properly for both rooms. We complained and they were fixed but our fear of being scalded remained.
The ambient of the hotel has the feel of a chinaman hotel, when we arrived there were wedding dinners and rowdy karaoke session going on in the restaurant fending both ends of the building lobby.
However NYY, is near to the Changlong Paradise park and safari zoo, where 13 yuan will take you there by taxi. The parks are vast and one has to make sure the right park to go to when providing direction to the taxi driver. The amusement parks and the zoo catered mainly for the local china population rather than to foreigners. Nevertheless, we were impressed with the many white tigers in the zoo. Not groomed and well fed, as compare to the Singapore zoo white tigers, we were told they were fed small portion of food in order to let them live a more active lifestyle.
