1.  Group reorganisation and basis of presentation
     The Company was incorporated in Hong Kong on 13 October, 2000
     as a limited liability company under the Hong Kong Companies
     Ordinance. Pursuant to a group reorganization scheme (the "Group
     Reorganization") to rationalize the structure of the Group in
     preparation for the listing of the Company's shares on GEM of the
     Stock Exchange on 13 August 2001, the Company became the holding
     company of the Group on 30 July 2001.  Further details of the
     Reorganization are set out in the prospectus of the Company
     dated 31 July 2001 (the "Prospectus").
     The Group's financial statements have been prepared in accordance
     with the Hong Kong Statements of Standard Accounting Practice,
     accounting principles generally accepted in Hong Kong and the
     disclosure requirements of the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance.
     They have been prepared under the historical cost convention.
     The Group financial statements include the financial statements
     of the Company and its subsidiaries made up to 31 Dec., 2004. The
     Group Reorganisation above has been accounted for by using merger
     accounting.  Apart from the Group Reorganisation, the results of
     subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the period are included
     in the consolidated income statement from the effective date of
     acquisition or up to the effective date of disposal, as

     All significant intra-group transactions and balances have been
     eliminated on consolidation.

     Minority interests represent the interests of outside shareholders
     in the operating results and net assets of subsidiaries.

4. Extract of the report of the auditors
   Basis of our opinion
   We planned our audit so as to obtain all the information and
   explanations which we considered necessary in in order to provide us
   with sufficeient evidence to give reasonable assurance as to whether
   the financial statements are free from material misstatement. In
   forming our opinion we also evaluated the overall adequacy of the
   presentation of the information in the financial statements.  We
   believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
   Qualified opinion arising from non-compliance of The Rules Governing
   the Listing of Secutities on the Growth Enterprise Market of the
   Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited
   In accordance with Chapter 19 of the Rules Governing the Listing of
   Securities on the Growth Enterprise Market of the Stock Exchange of
   Hong Limited, the Company was required to disclose its acquisition
   of this subsidiary company, Xuzhou China International Travel Service
   Limited, in the People's Republic of China on 18th August 2004, but
   no such disclosure was made by the Company. Such non-disclosure may
   constitute a breach of the Listing Rules of the GEM.
   Except for that the Company did not comply with the disclosure
   requirement of the Listing Rules of GEM, in our opinion the
   financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of
   the Group's and of the Company's affairs as at 31st December 2004
   and of the Group's profit and cash flows for the year then ended
   and have been properly prepared in accordance with the Hong Kong
   Companies Ordinance.
