Road Trip in the Town of Arxan and Boondocking at Zhi Xing Hotel parking

We planned to stay at Jin camping for another night and take more photos of it. But at 05:00 in the morning, my daughter started to vomit heavily, and she got a fever going up. As there was no pharmacy or hospital in the village (2 hours drive to the nearest), we decided to leave the Jin Jiang Gou camping and head for the nearby town with a hospital. I don’t remember what hospital we found on the mobile, but we needed to drive to Xincheng Residential District and Arxan town. We found a pharmacy, but we could not buy any of the items recommended by the doctor as there are restrictions due to the Covid situation. Even basic medication for diarrhea needs to have a doctor’s prescription.

While driving through Arxan, suddenly, on the right side, we saw many RVs and caravans parked and decided to make a U-turn to check it out. Maybe 30 RVs and caravans had made the camp at the empty Zhi Xing Hotel (Zhixing Grand Hotel) parking lot, and we decided to stay for a short period. After some consultation by mobile with our insurance medical assistance, we decided to stay put and wait to see. We had some medication with Probiotics and fever-lowering + a lot to drink. If getting worse, no matter what, we will head for the hospital. Luckily, the vomiting and fever settled, and she felt well. I think it must have been some food poisoning. When traveling, we always have a couple of first aid kits and a big box of basic medicine packed with us. Luckily, the fever went down, and the vomiting stopped.

This was a great community. Everybody shared their ideas and also showed some innovative upgrades to their cars. Almost all caravans were imported, and you can see the difference in design and quality. Of course, there is also a price difference.
