After breakfast we went out of the ship to shop because we heard there was a good shopping mall on the dock. That was an understatement. Immediately upon exiting the ship we found ourselves in a full scale, high-end mall with 3 floors of stores. We explored for about an hour and almost got lost in there. They had a lot of clothing and jewelry stores that we bypassed. We checked out a few camera stores but they didn't carry anything we are in the market for. Finally, we did find a nice medium size suitcase at a good price. We'll need the extra so we can fit the souvenirs we've gotten along the way plus the ones we'll probably get over the next few weeks.

The bus dropped us off in the city next so we could board the city tram, referred to by locals as the "Ding Ding" because of it's sound. This was a fun ride on a double-decker streetcar.
When we go off we walked uphill to a local cafe for tea or coffee and a pastry. They served the tea English style, with milk. It was stronger, black tea than I usually associate with China. I think it had more of the British influence.

Tomorrow is another transition day. Lots of passengers are getting off the ship and going home in the morning. New passengers will be boarding tomorrow afternoon. We will go out on another tour in the morning to get out of the way for a few hours.
