After 10 months re-renovation, this hotel reopened in the end of last year. Hidden in a small town called Suichang which is 4 hours driving from Hangzhou. To get there, the best way is to take a train to go to Longyou station (about 1 hour), then a 30 minutes bus ride to Suichang, once you are in Suichang, then you can get a Didi taxi to take you to the hotel.

As the name says, hot spring is the highlight of this hotel. The hot spring water associated with fluorite mine is introduced from the bottom of Hushan fluorite mine, which is two kilometers away from the hotel. The water temperature is about 41 degrees. It is one of the few natural hot springs of fluorite mine. You can chill out in the vinegar spa, rose spa, herb spa, or fish spa, if you want to be more private, a few rooms come with a spa. Make yourself a pot of tea, leave the stress and worries behind, pamper yourself in the nature.

There 22 rooms with different designs. The Family Friendly Room has a slide for the child to come downstairs and a glass ceiling to gaze at the starry sky; Hot Spring Room is facing at the Huangzhao mountain; the Husky fridge and Marshall blue tooth speaker are icing on the cake.

The hotel locates on the upstream of Wuxi River, everything comes from nature. The ingredients used in the restaurant are local chickens from Huangniling, vegetables and fruits from Gaoping, fish head from Shangping or rice from Zhulong.

Take a Tour at Sam's Club with Us!

Happy National Holiday, everyone!

We're pretty sure you all had a grand time celebrating this golden week with family and friends - cruising to faraway exotic vacation spots, dipping your toes into that fine white sand,  tasting good food, and finally catching up on some of the items in your bucket list.

With this long time off, we decided to take a quick tour at Sam's Club at Puxi to check out the latest happenings with our friends!

Whole rotisserie chicken gets sold 3,000+ a day!

At Sam's Club, where millions of meals were eaten, the catering area is particularly popular with its members. Many customers make it a point to go straight to the roasted food section to grab the famous rotisserie chicken!

This particular chicken gets sold more than 3,000+ a day during peak season and is a must-buy for Sam's Club shoppers.

Why? For 1.5 kg of chicken, you can already buy this at less than ¥40!

Also, only Tyson chickens, known leaders in the poultry industry as processors of live poultry from their origins, were selected. A private secret recipe was used for the marination of these chickens before being transported directly to Sam's Club stores for roasting. Sam's back kitchen is equipped with a German imported oven, which strictly controls the oven temperature and roasting time to ensure that each chicken has the same excellent taste.

Whole Rotisserie Chicken

¥39.8/ 1.5 kg.

Yummy Aussie beef up for grabs!

Sam's Club also prides itself with the beef it puts into the shelves - particularly the Australian beef kind. Only cereals were used to feed Australian "aboriginal cattle" for 100 days, growing in lush aquatic areas and equipped with professional dietitians from an early age.

Here at Sam's Club, beef from different parts are available to satisfy everyone's appetite, and they are pretty affordable too! Customers usually just spend less than ¥50 a piece with an average of 3 pieces in a box.

But the fun does not end there! You can taste these on the spot too, right after they are cooked in front of you!

Professional chefs randomly select steaks on the shelves, cook them on the spot and slice them into individual pieces for unlimited tasting. To highlight the advantages of steak, only salt and pepper are added in the cooking process, which does not hide the strong flavor of the beef itself, and the ripeness can also feel the temptation of popping juice.

When the steak is split, the fat part is especially removed so that every guest can have the best part.

Go ahead and line up to find out yourself how good Sam's Club beef is!

True Aussie Beef
*Price subjective to weight

Seafood is gaining popularity!
We also found more interesting things too at Sam's Club - particularly the seafood! There are a variety of cod fillets, salmon and sablefish steaks available for purchase. Here's a little trivia though - Sam's Club does not sell live seafood, but they have frozen seafood available. This assures its customers that all displayed seafood are safe to eat as the quality of the food is better controlled when frozen.

Just looking at that colorful, high-quality fish fillets makes us crave a tasty fish and chips dinner! Yum!

Member's Mark
Salmon

¥158.6 / 600g.

Member's Mark
Frozen Pangasius Fillet

¥47.8 / 1.2kg.

12 Day Eggs!?
Another interesting find in Sam's Club is its eggs! Compare to normal eggs with a shelf life for 30 days, none of Sam's Club eggs can stay on its shelves for more than 12 days in order to keep them fresh for you. All eggs are tested already for salmonella and are marked with its "birthdate." All eggs that are past 12 days from its birthdate are taken off and discarded.

This totally takes freshness to a different level indeed.

Member's Mark
Fresh Eggs

All eggs are sterilized and source-traceable.
¥29.8 / 1.5kg.

FINALLY, Fresh Produce!
What is a supermarket without fresh fruits and a very efficient way to maintain them? Sam's Club actually has pre-installed coolers in their Produce Walk-In area to keep these fresh for its customers! Talk about cool!

No wonder these cherries, bananas, and kiwis are looking so fresh, despite coming from faraway countries like Australia and the Philippines! All ready for us to take them home!

Dole Banana
¥19.9 / 1.4kg.

Member's Mark
Cherries

¥299 / 2kg.

Zespri Jumbo Sungold Kiwifruit
¥199 / 3kg.

Wow! That ends our quick trip to Sam's Club this National Holiday, pretty much excited with the fresh high-quality meat and produce we were able to take us home to try out! Certainly, this won't be the last!

We hope to catch you at Sam's Club soon!

Discover, Learn and Experience de World!

During the Golden Week Holiday, a group of students from grades 7-12 traveled to Spain to return with their minds and hearts filled with life-long memories, friendships and more importantly with the experience of having traveled to Europe, for the first time, for many of them.

Through the week the students took Spanish language lessons, tailored to their level and needs every morning, and during the afternoon they ventured out to explore the best of Madrid.

The visits included the impressive Royal Palace, where they learned how royalty lived; the Reina Sofia art center, home of "El Guernica", Picasso's masterpiece; and a day trip visit to picturesque Toledo.

During the trip, they also enjoyed different cultural experiences, including a wonderful Flamenco dance evening, and two Real Madrid soccer matches.

As they stayed at a local student residence, the students got a taste for college living and enjoyed delicious Spanish home-made food!

At HIS we believe in providing opportunities for students to gain understanding and experiences that link their learning to reality, and it was great to see how the students were able to put their language skills into practice, making historic and cultural connections to what they were seeing and experiencing directly.

Special thanks to the parents who trusted us and supported this trip, to the chaperones, and the accompanying parents for being such great companions.

Once a Dragon, always a Dragon!

Sam’s Club: Recipes for the Homesick

Living outside your home country can be exciting and eye-opening, immersed with new experiences and culture and the idea of being independent. Yet there are times that we still long for the familiar. That is when homesickness strikes. Being away from what has been common to you for long is tough, and a totally different culture like China is of no help either.

What do you do when homesickness strikes? There are a lot of tips and tricks you can find online, but if there's only one essential thing these tips have in common, that would be cooking up your favorite comfort foods to start the day right.
