My Trip to Yunnan Province: Lijiang – getting lost in the ancient city

2010-10-18 | China travel Guide | Comments(1) |   Views:(915)

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. ...

My Trip to Yunnan Province: Dali - the kingdom of the Bai ethnic minority Dali Airport is a modern construction as its roads. There are two cities: the old and the new city. Unlike many other cities in China, the cities are separated by several kilometres. Dali was once a kingdom, home to some 22 kings; today it is home to the Chinese ethnic minority known as the Bai People who can be distinguished by their brightly coloured clothing and their bright culture which includes lots of singing and dancing. ...

My Trip to Yunnan Province: Kunming - the base to launch our Yunnan adventure

2010-10-13 | China travel Guide | Comments(3) |   Views:(498)

My Trip to Yunnan Province: Kunming - the base to launch our Yunnan adventure Kunming is a lovely and temperate city, and by south-west Chinese standards it is very developed. It reminded me a lot of Xi'an; a mid to high-level Chinese city with unique characteristics. Kunming is pleasant place to stay, attracting many people as Xishuangbanna and Lijiang. In short Kunming is the most convenient place to fly to and acclimatise to the thinner air of Yunnan. ...

2010 Asian Games in China: Doing for Guangzhou What the Olympics Did for Beijing With the pan-Asian sporting games heading to China in 2010 it is the hope of the people of Guangzhou that these games can do to their city what the Olympic did for Beijing and to a lesser extent what the 2010 World Expo has done for Shanghai. After winning the right to host the games in 2004 (as the sole bidder) the city has been working furiously to give itself a major makeover in time to impress its major neighbours. ...

One Day Shanghai World Expo Experience Tour During my business trip in China, I went to visit the Shanghai World Expo although my schedule was very tight. This year it would be a big pity if you did not see the Expo if you had the chance to visit Shanghai. I did not want to miss the big highlight of Shanghai since I have been there. ...

My 3 days/2nights Highlights Trip in Guilin VisitOurChina hosted one family group from Holland to enjoy the highlights of Guilin for 4 days this month. As a travel advisor of VisitOurChina, luckily, I got the chance to be their company and made an in-depth site inspection of the attractions in Guilin, such as the Elephant Trunk Hill, the Seven Star Park, the Reed Flute Cave, the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces and the Yao and Zhuang Ethnic Tribes in Longsheng, the Li River, and the West Street in the ancient town of Yangshuo. To be honest, I have lived in Guilin for almost 8 years but still feel that it is just like an emerald waiting to be explored. So here, I would like to share what we have enjoyed in these 4 days with you. ...
