Oak Tree Cafe, Guangzhou International Airport

And so at 7am in the morning after, we left the comfy pampering center by taxi to catch a transit bus to the Guangzhou International Airport.Obviously all the fuss of flying outta Guangzhou instead of the nearer Shenzhen International Airport was due to cheaper air tickets. It was a budget backpacking trip afterall. *ahem*

The airport was quite impressive.We did self check-in at the machines instead of queuing at the congested counters. Once the boarding passes are printed, just check-in the luggage at the designated counters. Don't understand? Just ask one of the few appointed airport personnels (cannot miss them as they wear flashy sashes) standing by to assist. Ecpc, especially if you read and speak Chinese (Mandarin). =P

Our breakfast at the airport. 3 of us shared 1 bowl of Wantan Noodles and 1 bowl of Preserved Chinese Mustard Noodles. Tastewise, the latter fared better. The wantan (porky dumplings) skin were thick and the fillings smelled very different to what I'm used to. The Malaysian version wins hands down.The piping hot Lattes and Cappucino were good.Just love the brown crystal sugar they provide!Our bill:There are at least 3 outlets of this cafe in that airport!

Next post, we arrived in Xian, City of the Terracotta Warriors.
