Photo Tour Experience in Guilin: a new phenomenon

2010-11-12 | Life in Guilin | Comments(1) |   Views:(949)

Photo Tour Experience in Guilin: a new phenomenon One of my good friends in Guilin is a man from Belgium, an unassuming, softly-spoken man who has one discerning feature: his love of photography and his desire to make 'custom photo tours' one of the principle reasons for travelling in China.Taking photos while travelling is not a new concept, indeed photography has been an inseparable part of travel since commercial touring began; the new phenomenon is tourists visiting a region with the express purpose of capturing the environment through a lens. Guilin is a perfect example; a easily accessible tourists destination, which has not been over-developed and a wide-range of locations perfectly suited to photography: Li River, Longsheng's Longji Rice Terraces, Yangshuo's vibrant West Street and rural landscape surrounding it, or simple the amazing karsts that are dotted all throughout the city of Guilin and its surrounding counties....

2010-11-02 | China travel Guide | Comments(0) |   Views:(2267)

Chaozhou: different to any other part of China Chaozhou is a popular tourist destination but it is also so much more than that. The small prefecture of Chaozhou has over several hundred years developed a culture and way of life that is almost unrecognisable to other parts of China. For those who are visiting Guangdong (Canton) Province it is defiantly worth visiting Chaozhou and experience what feels like another country....

2010-10-24 | China travel Guide | Comments(1) |   Views:(1463)

Travelling to Shangrila is like travelling into a postcard, it is beautiful and inspiring in a way a big city could never be. The air is so clean and so strikingly blue and the people are remarkably friendly in a way that is refreshingly genuine and contrasts sharply to Lijiang.

2010-10-18 | China travel Guide | Comments(1) |   Views:(1611)

My Trip to Yunnan Province: Lijiang – getting lost in the ancient city As a beautiful city full of tourists; the old Lijiang city is certainly a beautiful sight, particularly of an evening the Black Dragon Palace, the Snow Mountain and the Mu Castle are the pick of the sights. We travelled from Dali to Lijiang by bus and it proved to be a beautiful and amazing journey higher up into the plateaus of northern Yunnan, the amazing twists and turns revealed the landscape as well as a large Chinese army base! My brother and father had an interesting toilet experience which left them nothing short of revolted; I revealed that I had seen worse but that served little to comfort them. Many of the toilets on the road from Dali to Lijiang are pay per use, which guarantee at least a basic level of hygiene. ...
