This is the second time we will be heading out by rental RV. Target is in Nanjing at Tangshan RV 松林山庄 camping site
Found an RV rental close to Shanghai Disney World. New RV’s in line waiting for an adventure with the renters. There are many campers with their own terrace and BBQ spot which can be rented for the long term or just overnight.
The site looks well equipped and family-friendly and we plan to stay for a weekend in the future to check out the facilities as well as enjoy a Disney weekend.
settled down the renting issues, we took a pop-up adventure to Disney town by local bus, after 10 minutes we are enjoying the scenery of every-night fireworks with hot coffee.
The Maxus RV60 performed OK with a 2L T Diesel engine. The only thing was the automatic gear that changed the gears like poorly changes on manual gears. jumping jackrabbit.
We are going to give some ratings of the different campsites and also the sightseeing spots that we experience on our trips. These are purely our ratings and it might be someone else would rate it differently.
One of my favorite travel music. Check it out Nightwish. Nightwish is a Finnish symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland.
Heavy music in this traffic always helps to lower down my stress level. As you can see that I’m a fan of Finnish metal music. Check out Nightwish and enjoy the music. Recommendations go for Ghost love score, Shoemaker, Poet, and the pendulum, and The greatest show on earth are some of the great ones.
Some Service stations that we visited on the way to Nanjing
Why do I take this up? Normally gasoline/service stations have a different level of standards here. This came up clearly during our trip to Inner Mongolia, these service stations below are pure luxury.
Up in the north, the service stations are more or less only for filling fuel and have some basic snacks. Most of them are missing normal service equipment, for example, the compressor for filling up the tires.
Some example pictures below of our Inner-Mogolia trip 2021
Checking out three service stations on the way.
These three service stations on our way to Nanjing are very famous in China for the available service and the looks.
All services were available for body and car.
These stations are recommended also for a boondocking stay as there are security 24/7 and services available.
The first stop is Yangcheng Lake Service Center (国家电网充电站(阳澄湖服务区)
China is very advanced with mobile phone technology. Even in toilets, you need to scan for QR code with for example Alipay to get some paper. Is this good? They will collect the data when you need to wipe your butt. Many of the apps in China will ask for permission for contact, location, and so on. The similar as European GDPR (Chinese PIPL) is slowly coming and let’s see how that will affect the data collection. Nothing is free, even you don’t pay for it with money you pay in other ways.
The Yangcheng Lake (阳澄湖) Service Center is not a traditional gasoline station. It is very famous for inner design and variable of service and facilities.
On top of the basic gasoline station function, it is more like a medium-sized shopping mall, a Zen garden for resting and relaxation, a food street with various choices, a gaming-VR zone for kids. The inner design and decoration are like the mini Venice with water canals.
The Second stop is MeiCun(梅村服务区) Service Center
We also stayed overnight in the parking lot, but remember, keep always a distance from the trucks on the parking lot. They were making noise constantly by coming and leaving.
The third was the Xianrenshan Service Center (仙人山)
The third stop is Xianrenshan (仙人山) Service Center.
The atmosphere and restaurants were satisfying, had a nice stop here, and was also to take our dog out for a short walk. Seemed he was also interested in swimming in the lake but I don’t even know if he can swim.
The next stopping place would be the Tangshan Hot Springs RV Camping
