Simatai Great Wall The great-wall is a must for every traveller heading to Beijing, it is truly both awe-inspiring and culturally enriching experience, but if you have already been to the world-renowned Badaling Great Wall and are searching for somewhere more untamed and commercialised why not try the sections of the Great Wall at Simatai? ...

The Jewel of Zhejiang: Putuo Mountain / Putuo Shan (普陀山)

2010-07-12 | China travel Guide | Comments(0) |   Views:(1208)

One of the most enriching travelling experiences I have ever had was on an island little known to foreign tourists located in Zhejiang Province in eastern China. The island is called Putuo Shan. The island itself is located about an hour by boat from the small sea-side town of Ningbo (宁波)(itself too worth a visit!) and around eight to nine hours from Shanghai for those of you who enjoy longer boat rides!

There's undoubtedly A LOT to do around Guilin, one activity I may suggest for those of you who have seen your fair share of mountains and gardens is white-water rafting, or as the Chinese weirdly translate it  'driftage'.

Xing An of Guilin: A trip back in time With three days holiday I needed something do, so harnessing my adventurous spirit I decided to visit one of the twelve counties that surround Guilin. Guilin is such a perfect base for extended travel purely due to the fact that there are so many amazing locations to visit within relatively close proximity, all of which have amazing scenery and unique characteristics, it offers visitors to Guilin to experience a new town every day. Upon arriving at the bus-station it was clear that a combination of heavy rain and bus departure times that the most convenient destination would be the Northern county of Xing An. ...

Buyer Beware: Bargaining and Shopping in China Whenever we go traveling overseas, we always want to take a little piece of that country home, something that goes beyond the two-dimensions of a photograph. You may just be looking something to give your close friend of relative, or perhaps something a bit more extravagant for ourselves.
