2012-01-12 | China travel Guide | Comments(0) |   Views:(97)

 
Known as a section of the scenic water system of "two river and four lakes" in Guilin, the Mulong Lake (木龙湖), literally Wooden Dragon Lake, is an artificial lake connecting the Li River in the east and channeling the water into the downtown area of the city. Leaning against the several hundreds old Song city wall and the Diecai Hill, the lake was named after the Mulong Hole on the upper part of the hill, and so is the 45-meter-high Mulong Tower and the Mulong Arch Bridge stretching over the Mulong Lake. On the other and of the bridge there are waterside pavilions where actresses in Chinese ancient dress perform classic Chinese music show in the evening.

The winter in Guilin fells with rain finally in December. The sharply dropping temperature (4 Celsius degree) at the last week of the month colored some trees such as maples and maidenhair trees and is decorating the city with colorful leaves. Thank goodness, it cleared up again and a blue sky of spring contrasted vividly with the leaves, creating an extraordinarily beautiful scene. To catch the masterpieces of the nature, I went out to take some pictures of that specially.

Time flies so fast that it is time for us to welcome the brand new 2012. Looking back to the past year, we can factually remember and feel every detail of our work – overtime for handling inquiries and emails at the office in the evening, double checking and ensuring booking information with suppliers, helping customers in their course of travel with various problems by phone, etc. Most of the time we were as busy as a bee, but all of the tiredness turned into joyousness of feeling relieved finally when all these problems were successfully solved.

"A big family pork feast for the New Year" has been being the traditional customs in China  since the ancient time. In the past decade, it seemed that life of more and more Chinese was invaded by restaurants, but in recent years it is becoming the order of the day that companies and businessmen gather their stuff and partners to have an authentic pork meal at some suburb of their cities at the end of the year, creating a chance of non-working communication or of discussion about further development and cooperation in the coming year.

November in Guilin was surprisingly lovely this year. I guess it realized that it’s annual harvest time of our taros and sweet potatoes in Lipu, which is about 105 km away from downtown Guilin. The interesting experience of harvesting and the delicious taros and sweet potatoes of last year still engrave on everybody’s mind, so all of us were full of enthusiasm when hearing it’s the harvest time again! Thanks to the convenient road network, 1.5 hours’ drive is enough to take us from Guilin to the farmland near the Silver Cave in Lipu County.

But if you pay a little patience, you will find that is not an arduous challenge at all. So how about making your first step of becoming a chef of Chinese dishes with us?
