Traveling to the United States was decided six months before the trip. There have been many twists and turns in making this decision. Because there are ten people involved in this free trip, it is not an easy task to get together ten people at the same time. Hesitated and gave up, but he finally decided to set off. Due to the busy work and the higher and higher ticket prices, in order to improve efficiency, everyone's visa is to find an intermediary to help, from preparation materials to face-to-face signing for two weeks, and everyone is very smooth, ask some basic questions, give Visa.
The first thing about the visa is to book a flight. We plan to go to Shanghai on June 23, 2014, and return to Shanghai on July 4, 2014. Tickets booked about two and a half months in advance, United, 8600 per person (tax included). Not expensive, but not cheap, moderate. It took more than a month to book the hotel one after another, renting a car, and the Raiders started doing it six months ago. It is very easy to say now, but the preparation process at that time was really painful. I read countless strategies, countless routes, countless hotels, countless choices, and I kept choosing, giving up, and changing the schedule to a dozen versions. It was finally finalized (most of the tickets and hotels were booked on Ctrip, and some were booked at Priceline. I think Priceline will be slightly cheaper than Ctrip, and there are more hotels, I just used Ctrip).

When designing the main line, I asked everyone for their opinions. Because the United States is too big, the 13-day trip cannot be played on both the east and west coasts, and our travel tone is based on natural scenery, so we have made a cross. The journey of things, while the eastern part chose the most representative city: New York.
