Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to China, welcome to Harbin!
Confucius, our ancient great philosopher once said, What a great joy it is to have friends from afar! Today, with such great joy, on behalf of China International Travel Service Heilongjiang, Id like to extend our warmest welcome to all of you, our distinguished guests from the other side of the world. I also hope that, during your short stay in Harbin, you not only can satisfy your eyes and stomach, but also experience the local peoples lifestyle and have a better understanding of China.
Please sit back and relax. Let me introduce my team first. My name is Zhou Xinpeng. During your stay in our city, I will be your local guide. Our driver is Mr. Xiao. He has 15 years of driving under his belt, so you are in very safe hands. We will do everything possible to make your visit a pleasant experience. If you have any requests or suggestions, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Ive been told that all of you are from Australia. I know it is summer now in the South Hemisphere. So it must be a great change to find you in the Ice City in the deep winter. So you might doubt whether you can adapt such a cold weather. Infect, stay with me, do as the local people do, and you will enjoy staying here.
The airport is about 40 kilometers from downtown. Id like to take this opportunity to introduce Heilongjiang Province and its capital, Harbin
Dear friends, were now approaching our hotel: the Swan Hotel. Apart from very good accommodation, there are a variety of recreational facilities. I hope you will have a pleasant stay there. But there is one thing you must pay attention. The tap water in China is not potable. But do not worry, in each room, you will find thermos bottles with boiled water.
As youll be staying here for two and a half days, you will do well to remember the number of our bus. The number is 12345. Let me repeat: 12345.Got it?
Here were at our hotel. Make sure you take all your belongings, and the luggage car will arrive afterwards, thank you for your attention and have a good rest!
