New Tour Destination: Jakarta

We’ve been all over West China. Now we’ll take a trip to the third largest city in the world.

There are so many sights to see. Here are some highlights in this video below:First up is the Skye Bar. You’ll see a great view of the city, plus great food. Don’t forget to bring your camera for that selfie!

If there’s one thing you’ll notice in Indonesia, it’s the traffic. It’s absolutely terrible, but hey, the daily lives of people are fun to watch from inside a car too.

Like in this video, subscribers of this tour will be staying at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Jakarta. The landscaping is amazing, with flowers, and statues. And the design of the inside is amazing.

You can eat your exotic fruit and cheese with a towering view of the city.

Next up is a street food adventure. This guy Mark Wiens will show you what we will show you too.

First up is a sort of rice krispie and omelette combined.

Chinatown is a great place to find some street food. You’ll see traffic as usual (you’ll get used to it).

You can see a couple of Chinese temples that will signify you are in Chinatown.

You can buy birds here. You can buy fruits and vegetables.

Next street food is siomay. Really cheap. About $1.11 dollar. It has a special peanut and chili sauce with tofu, and pork stuffed in bitter melon. That sounds about as eccentric as they come.

You can also try some vegetarian street food in Jakarta. One is called Ren Dang, vegetarian style. It costs $1.48. It is made of black mushroom, but it looks exactly like meat.

These are just some of the many experiences you can try in Jakarta. And we’ll take you there! Here are other destinations:

Attention employees of West Holiday. The management would like to announce its plans of putting up a branch office in Kunming.

This will be our first branch office, so we lack a lot of knowledge and experience about the process. Here is a video that may be helpful in keeping everyone up to speed about the whole project. This is a video that shows how a branch office expansion is done in India. Now, we are not going to expand in India, but the process is not that different from expanding to Kunming.

By watching and educating yourself with the video, you can have a clearer vision of the branch office expansion plan. Or at least a little bit oriented.

We are going to be asking assistance from a foreign company, but we are looking for local clients as well. If anyone knows someone who is an expert of the autocad, please inform the management immediately. We are hiring autocad experts to design our branch office.

There are a few prerequisites to opening a branch office is a profitability track record of more than 5 years.

Only manufacturing and trading companies are usually allowed to have a branch office in West China.

We have to get approval from a lot of government bodies, so the process will be taking a lot of time. Maybe even 1 year, depending on the strength of the case.

Profits are allowed to repatriate, transfer pricing is applicable, and the income tax rates for foreign tax is applicable.

Please watch the video for more information. Below is a picture of our ideal branch office:
