Tony the tour guide who turned out to be my friend
Jan 2020
Published by jasonbillows
我住在杭州。我是老师。我是英国人。Living and working in Hangzhou. Originally from the UK.
I visited Beijing in the Chinese New Year in 2019/2020 with Tony Hoo。
2019:Tony’s knowledge was incredible, he went into specific details about each part that we walked round and his English was really good. He was very funny as well and just my type of humor. Tony descriptions were so detailed that I could see he had been studying this great place for many years, but it wouldn’t be until the year after that I realised where and how. We stopped regularly for all the best photos stops with the best poses. When we reached the top, there was section where I had to make a wish for the upcoming year. Chinese people generally are not religious, but they are very superstitious and have a lot of good life values that western culture would benefit from. We finished the tour by stopping at the best Beijing duck restaurant in town. Only known with local knowledge and we started the meal with a small cup of bai jiu! Which translates to white wine but it isn’t like the white wine that we drink in the west, it’s a white spirit that I later learned to be the highest selling spirit in the whole world, with 99% of it being sold solely in China. We drank some bai jiu from a big jar that had a dead snake inside. A lot of the fine food and drinks that are consumed in china are supposed to contain many health benefits, bai jiu included! Tony and I would have one picture and drink together and then he left to carry on working.
2020:I finished my food and explored a bit more of Beiing afterwards. We stayed in touch with Tony every so often during that year I was definitely keen to visit the great wall again because I knew his tour would better. Better knowledge and organisation about getting up there and back to Beijing. So, I booked in with him during the Chinese new year that has just passed and by this time I had broken up with Anna but brought I Chinese girl with me. I told Tony about the location of the hotel and he organised for a driver to pick us up in the morning. He sent an ex-military officer, big unit and looked hard as nails. Tony joined us on the way. It took us about 2 hours to get up to the wall. We bought some Chunghwa on the way which are considered China’s most representative brand of cigarettes. The tour was awesome, completely different route to one I had been on the year before and Tony had some great stories to tell again. We came across a person guarding a passage through in a certain part of the wall, just like the year before. Tony explained that these people were originally a tribe or family in the area, and they continue to guard places like this to ask for an entry fee to pass through; obviously higher price for foreigners. We stopped at an awesome restaurant on the way back and it was one of my favorites, roast fish! I have been to many roast fish restaurants in Hangzhou and one of the best parts about it is that they take the fish out of the tank in front of you. For many western people they might see this as ‘cruel’ but in fact it’s real life and I think it is good for everyone to understand where their food comes from. If you can’t process that you are eating something that twenty minutes ago was swimming around in the tank in front you of then you should probably do some research into becoming a vegan. Outside the restaurant there were many fish swimming in a tank. I was given a net and then able to pull the fish out of the tank before it was weighed. Tony took us to the kitchen at the back to make sure that they were going to cook the fish that we had pulled out and not an old one. The food was awesome, we ate, drank and shared some more stories before heading back to Beijing.
