There is a lot of hotel groups offer some coupons or discounts.
Around 2000 for 2 nights and they have a list and they offer different levels 2000 for 2 nights 3000 for 2 nights and you can choose different hotels in different cities.
2000 for 2 nights and you can use it separately.
You have to use it before February next year for Hyatt you can use until April. If you miss the deadline you can return.
Last year I bought the air tickets from China easter airline business class to London it is only 13k almost 50% off.

Normally the economic class is about 6 or 7K.
Sometimes we don’t think it is a good deal because the fix the date we don’t know if we can meet the schedule.
my husband played a period of time, first he buys a Nikon and he says he wants a lens to shoot the wide and then I want another one to macro.

now photo is very easy to get, 20 years ago we pay money to buy a box of film for 36 pictures and we would count everyone can only use 6 opportunities, now it is easy you take it you feel not satisfied you can delete it. We feel it changes our life, you can take a lot and take pictures by yourself.

A lot of pictures in your phone but you just look at it once a year.
if we don’t keep it very well we cannot find it back because we do not keep the record, now we can take it very easily. In the past I think going out take pictures is a big thing because we need to go the the camera shop now everyone can do this so people don’t cherish it more.

Some of my friends use them to do homework for the kids. The schools ask them to submit reports with some pictures.
And now the parents should have a lot of skills. In the past you just sent the children to the school now you have to do everyone otherwise the teacher will blame you.
