If you go to moon resort expecting a western hotel, then you will be disappointed. If you go searching for an honest, human and personal experience, then you will be as pleased as we were. Wei Wei and her family provide guests with an exceptional level of care and humanity and is able to organize all of your activities for every budget. She shares all that she has...fruits, water, etc....and above all, leaves you with a piece of herself.
Despite being denied an education because of her gender, she taught herself English (her English is superb) and Mandarin and opened up her own little hotel. The food was amazing! The food comes in fresh from the gardens or local markets and is cooked with so much care by Wei Wei and her family. I particularly miss the yogurt with honey (honey milled from her father-in-law's bee farm) and the pomelos she peeled for me from her garden.
Travelers should beware, there is no heat, and it can get quite cold in the winter. But we bundled up and were fast asleep.
I would NOT recommend staying in the city center. Staying out at Moon helps you feel integrated into the Chinese countryside, while having a friendly guide to come home to and share your stories. If you want to make it out to the bars, then you can always catch the minibus for 2.5RMB to anywhere.
Again, if you're coming here expecting a holiday inn or mandarin oriental, then go stay in the city center above a loud bar. LOL. You can find one by waiting in front of the KFC. Otherwise, enjoy the generosity and hospitality provided by Wei Wei and the beautiful scenery abound.
