Fun entry...
Aman on TB...yes it does happened! I loved the Amanjena...specially their Moroccan restaurant at night. The Amandari was a serious disappointment...and yes, food was less than average....my son did his first vacation in an Aman, at the age of 4 weeks, it was the Amanpuri, impressive place. But so far, my prefered one is still the Amankila by far. I visited the Aman in Siem Reap and was less than impressed, and I've dive right in front of the Aman in Turks & Caicos. Little question, what did you think about the Amankora in Bhutan? How many of the lodges did you do? This is high on my little wish list.

The co-driver was a lot better looking than team member no 1!

WOW...I come from the backpacking class. I had never even heard of Aman until I read this blog but now I am going to look into it as I live in Hangzhou. I am aware of The Banyan Tree chain but didn't know it was a "copy cat". Enjoy your stays.

Amanfayun
I go to Hangzhou alot, but I usually stay at The Banyan Tree, or if I take my dog, the Oakwood Residences. Unfortunately the Amanfayun is probably my least favorite Aman resort as it lacks the wow factor and is, if anything, a little nondescript. By all means have lunch there, but don't take The Amanfayun to be a good representation of what I consider to be the best hotel chain in the world. If you are in Beijing, do check out the Aman at The Summer Palace, which my friends have said is really special. Have you tried the Dragon Well Manor? Supposed to be the best restaurant in China. Next time I go to Hangzhou I am going to check it out....

The Bucket List
I am a little confused...it seems you have already done everything on your bucket list except your upcoming road trip around China.

Not really
Still planning to see the whale sharks, write a book, build a school, and number 10. And one day, hopefully I'll have the opportunity to drive the real Silk Road. Then it'll be time to work on my second bucket list which will include seeing Buffalo in South Dakota, Writing a cook book, Free diving to a depth of 25m, and living long enough to see the first Travelblog from Mars !

What's the tyre budget?
Hey Dean, I hope you have made a hefty allowance for fresh rubber on this trip. By the looks of that video you are going to need it!!

Spare tyres
Thanks for reminding me. I might need to hedge my rubber exposure on the SHFE
