Universal Travel Group just held an investor conference call to answer investor questions about their business. They answered some and left many unanswered. However I just want to focus on one thing: the Chinese language websites.
They said the Chinese website running smoothly and that “we will try our best to maintain and upgrade in the future.”
That is good – because there are either a few “easter eggs” on the site or they are selling time-travel. I am going to show you how to book tickets for the 2007 Sinopec Formula 1 Grand Prix.
First you go to the www.cba-hotel.com site. Here is a screen shot.
I have used Google Translate to change this page to English.
At the top of the page are the key tabs – things you can do on this website – things like book hotels or tickets.
The sixth tab – in a fairly prominent place – is for F1 tickets. I pressed it – and translated to English. Here is a screenshot.
This is precisely as it seems – you can still buy tickets to the 2007 Sinopec Formula 1 Grand Prix. (I hope they let me bet on the race because I know the winner!)
This is from a site they maintain – and it is not deep in the site – it is a click on the main tabs on the front page. I made a Youtube video as well.
Still the company wishes to maintain the site in future – and 20 percent of their business comes from these sites according to the conference call we just heard. So maybe we will soon be able to rent a really fast car to help us get to the race on time.
I report – you decide.
