This trip was planned thanks to a seat sale that originated out of Los Angeles. We were going to originally visit two mainland China cities, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, but we decided to alter the itinerary slightly and invite along Alen.

So the trip will be as follows:

Fly to Los Angeles via San Francisco, one night, one full day, and another night.

Fly back to San Francisco and meet up with Alen. Fly to Hong Kong. Spending one night, one full day, and another night in Hong Kong.

Drive on the new Hong Kong - Zhuai - Macau Bridge to Macau where we will spend three nights.

We will then ferry back to Hong Kong and bid Alen sweet farewell, where he will remain in Hong Kong for a few days to explore.

Brad and I will continue to Beijing for one night, required by our ticket. We will then sleep at an airport hotel and then head off to Honolulu for another one night, one full day, and another night where we will then make our final trip home.
