         remittance restrictions in China, the parties then decided to have
         Party A issue the aforementioned loan in the form of a consulting fee.
         On May 31, 2000, the parties executed the "Consulting Agreement"
         (hereinafter referred to as the "Consulting Agreement"), and on May 31,

         understood that said consulting fee was essentially a loan from Party A
         to Party B, Party C and Party D.

2.       Now Parties A, B, C and D mutually acknowledge that the aforementioned
         Consulting Agreement shall be invalid as of the date of its execution
         and shall not be binding on the parties. The payment of RMB2 million

         Party B, Party A loaned RMB650,000 to Party C, and Party A loaned
         RMB650,000 to Party D.

         aforementioned RMB2 million to set up Ctrip Commerce. Party B holds 35%
         of the outstanding shares in Ctrip Commerce, Party C holds 32.5% of the
         outstanding shares in Ctrip Commerce and Party D holds 32.5% of the

         from Party A to Party D was also taken over by Party B and Party C,
         respectively, and of this, Party B took over RMB320,000 and Party C
         took over RMB330,000.

         contribution toward 51% of the equity interest in Ctrip Commerce. Party
         A lent a total of RMB980,000 to Party C, to be used as Party C's
         capital contribution toward 49% of the equity interest in Ctrip
         Commerce. To further clarify the relationship of rights and obligations
