PLANNING FOR SUMMAR VACATION
FAY:Hi Jerry. The school year is almost over. Do you have any plans for the summer holiday?
JERRY: I'm planning on sleeping all day, every day!
FAY: Oh, come on Jerry, you must be kidding.
JERRY: Yeah, I'm just pulling your leg. Actually, I'm going to go down to Guizhou Province.
FAY: Really? Why would you go to Guizhou? It's not a very popular tourist site.
JERRY: Exactly! It's not very popular, so it won't be too crowded. I enjoyed my trip to the Great
Wall, but there were so many people there. I think it spoiled the atmosphere a bit.
FAY: I'm sure Guizhou won't be so crowded. But won't it be too hot in the summer?
JERRY: No, according to one of my students, it's very cool in the summer. He said it is "naturally
FAY: Well, that sounds good. I wouldn't mind getting away from the Beijing heat myself. Still, I
wonder... is there anything worth seeing in Guizhou?
JERRY:Sure! For one thing, there's the beautiful natural scenery. I'm sure you've heard of the
Huang GuoShu Waterfalls. There's also the Maling Gorge which is said to be spectacular. There
are mountains everywhere in Guizhou, even in the capital city of Guiyang.
FAY: Yes, I have heard of Huang GuoShuPubu, but won't you get bored just looking at the
JERRY: Come on Fay, there's lots of things to do. I can go hiking in Qian Ling Park in Guiyang,
visit Miao villages in the southeast, and I know you've heard of Zunyi, a very historical city. It's
where Mao Ze Dong first became the leader of the Red Army.
FAY:Gee, when you describe it like that, it sounds really interesting!
JERRY: And that's not all. I'll be able to eat very delicious, spicy food, drink world-famous
maotai, and my student told me I can meet some very beautiful women there!
FAY:I'm sure you'll have fun Jerry, but let me give you some advice. Be sure to hold onto your
wallet AND your heart!
JERRY:We'll see what happens!
FAY:Do you have a place to stay in Guizhou?
JERRY: Yes, I'm very lucky. My student's sister is the manager of the Guizhou Park Hotel, the
best hotel in the province. I've seen some pictures on the Internet, it's really nice! But I think
outside Guiyang, I'll stay in a Miao village or maybe buy a tent and go camping.
FAY:That's great, Jerry. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos when you get back.
