Who is the winner of Friendly Planet Travel’s FREE trip to China?

CHINA CHAMPION: One of our 16,000 Facebook fans has won
a free trip!

Even though it’s Tuesday (I personally consider it the worst day of the week — Friday is still so far away!), it was a treat coming into the office today. You probably don’t even have to ask why, since I’m sure you’ve also been looking forward to the announcement of the third winner in our “Win the World” Facebook sweepstakes.

You entered yourself, told your friends to enter, and now it’s time. Who will be going on an all-expenses-paid dream getaway for themselves and a guest to China on our Taste of China tour?

The excitement is killing me, so I’ll just go ahead and say it. The winner of our Taste of China tour is Shari Ashley. Congrats!

I called Shari to let her know that she was our winner. Listen in to her excitement! And click here to download the audio to listen on the go!

So who is Shari taking with her on her trip, what does she want to see, and what is she most looking forward to in China? We’ll be posting a podcast that Friendly Planet Travel blogger Caitlin conducted with her soon, so stay tuned for those details and more.

Our “Win the World” Facebook sweepstakes will be kicking off for a second round on May 1. We’re wiping the slate clean, and starting fresh. Starting in May, every Facebook fan will have the opportunity to enter again, whether they’ve already submitted their name yet or not. So it will be a whole new ball game — fans will enter again, and of course, refer their friends for more chances to win.

I’m looking forward to giving away three more amazing trips to our loyal fans. Congratulations to Shari and I’ll be back at the beginning of June to announce the next “Win the World” Facebook sweepstakes winner! I already can’t wait!


  1. Sad I didn’t win, but congrats to Shari! Enjoy your trip!

  2. Congratulations to Shari for winning Friendly Planet’s trip to China! You’ll have to tell us all about it.
