I traveled to Nantong in Jiangsu province today, together with 2 colleagues from work. We visited customers at two shipyards, Nantong Tongde and Nantong Hantong shipyard. Both yards have many new projects for the offshore industry, like pipe laying vessels, accomodation barges, and anchor handling tugs.
The trip from Shanghai takes about 4 hours by car, including the ferry crossing of the Yangtze river. Because we still have a few visits tomorrow, we decided to stay the night in the Huatong Hotel in Nantong. The price list for the convenience items has some remarkable descriptions on it. None of the items could be found in the room by the way. Bummer, because I forgot to bring my own ‘Shave must knife’ this trip, and RMB 10.00 seems like a bargain.
