    My visit to Hulan last week...

    Welcome to a day in my life - I visit many parts of China in my job, but last week went to a new factory in Hulan (pronounced Hoonaan) - of particular interest was the 2hr taxi drive through the mountains to get there - and back! - check out the vids, they have not been altered in any way - the pics are a bit shoddy, due to using my 'phone through the window of the taxi - there was no way that I was getting out!

    Check out the dangly on the rear view mirror to get an idea of the cornering!


    Hulan is a very, very poor area!

    Hahahaha it the lovely Rover 75

    Those working conditions dont look too rosy!! I dont particularly like the look of that road, esp if you were to go over the edge :

    I presume your taxi was the car in the 2nd picture?

    What were they making?
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    We design the gifts between the five of us - me being the most junior of the delvelopment team, the other four are based in the uk. It's my job to get them made to spec in China - a very interesting but quite hard job tbh.

    These are just launched in the uk - we''ll sell around 5 million this year, then another 7 the next.
