Developing HSR in China does not only bring great convenience to domestic people’s life, but also provide another way of transport to foreign tourists when they are travelling in China. More HSR rail lines are being built each year, linking China’s cities, making travel in China quicker and more convenient than ever before. Visitors can now take China tours using only HSR, adding another aspect to traveling in China.
Last Wednesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron visited Chengdu. He visited the Dufu’s Thatched Cottage and Jinli Street, and had Chengdu Hotpot. Chengdu is the only city in Western China that has direct flights to London. It is the capital of Sichuan Province, and is famous for its food, teahouses, beautiful attractions, and a rapidly growing economy. With its development it has become a very modern city, but it still holds onto its traditional roots. Locals take great pride in their culture and traditions.
When you are planning a China tour, hotel arrangement would be naturally considered. For after spending an entire day on a China tour, a good night’s rest is especially important. Recently more visitors prefer staying at family-style or garden-style hotels rather than in larger star-rated hotels. In picturesque Guilin there are some beautiful garden-style hotels which offer an excellent environment, services and amenities. The best of these hotels are the Guilin Yi Royal Palace and the Guilin Zizhou Four-season Resort.
Yesterday morning when I passed by the Sanlidian Roundabout (Guilin) on my way to office, I found that the maple leaves had turned red - that’s really beautiful the leaves shaking slightly in many carriages. I did not spend much time enjoying it, but it did remind me of some other great places for red leaves watching in Guilin or other cities in China. As many tourists want to experience unusual China tours, red leaves watching may be a great choice.
“If you didn’t watch ‘Where are we going, dad?’ there would be no common language with others”, though exaggerated the reality show "Where are we going, dad?" broadcasted by a Chinese provincial TV is really popular in China at present. Besides curiosities to star fathers’ private lives, the ways they adopted to get along with their kids and children’ lovely performances, the six filming sites carefully chosen for twelve episodes is also a reason attracting eyeballs.
If you have been to Guangxi Province, China, you may already know the incredibly beautiful Guilin and Li River. But you may know little about the cuisine tradition of Guilin. Today I will introduce a kind of Guilin food and its culture - Oil-tea. According to the recording documents, Oil-tea can be dated back to China’s Qing Dynasty (1636-1912) when it was called Refreshing Tea.
Last Saturday I had the opportunity to participate in our travel agency’s annual outing to Silver Cave/ Yinzi Cave at Lipu County, Guilin. It is a great place with extraordinary sightseeings and I had a happy and special weekend. The theme of the trip was reaping sweet potatoes on the local farmland after which we had nice lunch, baked sweet potatoes, and took photos around the Silver Cave.
Jin Tai Xi Zhao (金台夕照) - a peaceful place in the busy streets. It is established in 2008 and located at No.15, Xizhao Temple Street, Chongwen District, Beijing. The famous Xizhao temple (has a history of over 600 years) stands inside it, based on which the club made its theme “divine will, poetic quality, enjoyable”. It is not only a comprehensive hotel, but also a cultural industry station with the cultural combination of dhyana, musical instrument, Chinese jade and tea.
