As is custom, Guilin Tianyuan International Travel Service Co., LTD., which VisitOurChina belongs to, often organizes an annual gathering before the end of the Chinese New Year (in lunar calendar). This year is with no exception. With the arrival of 20th January, we started off our three-day impressive group outing in Xiangzhou County and in Jinxiu Yao Autonomous County, where we not only took a bath in the hot spring, savoured the joyous moments of the highlights of our trip, that is, the annual meeting party of the company, but also embraced Mother Nature, paying a visit to the renowned Little Zhangjiajie Lotus Mountain.
If you travel the suburb and counties of Guilin, you may see there are many reservoirs around, big and small. They remained there quietly. Some of them people still use it, others are abandoned. Because farmers are not growing many rice as they used to be.
In autumn, it is getting cold after a shower of rain. Guilins temperature fall precipitously recently due to continuous rainfall, making people better enjoy the autumn. On 2rd December, it at last cleared up, and luckily the sun came out. In such a fine weather, nothing was better than be outdoors. So I, together with other travelers, went to appreciate the autumnal leaves in Haiyang village in Lingchuan county of Guilin.
Workingat VisitOurChina is really enjoyable,which meansfriendly fellows, good working atmosphere, and opportunities to get in touch with nature. As before as November rushes to the end, it is the time for harvesting sweet potatoes and taros, as well as for our travel agency’s annual trip to Lipu which is famed for taro and has the typical picturesque rural landscapes of Guilin.
People call her Xiangtama, it means Xiangs mother. Xiang is her second son. Xiangtama is from the same village where I started as a Zhiqing (Educated Youth)during the time of Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). She is about 5 or 6 years younger than me. She was just a little girl when I was there. Her parents have only two daughters, she and her young sister.
October marks the harvest time of paddy rice in Guilin; it is also the golden season for our hiking lovers. Recently, I joined a hiking trip organized by a Hiking Club and had the opportunity to admire the idyllic scenery of Huixian County (会仙乡) in Lingui (临桂), a part of Guilin. Azure sky, golden waves of rice paddies, and simple folk customs, left us very good memories.
As a reliable travel agency in Guilin, VisitOurChina is frequently invited to visit pilot programmes. This time is with no exception; we were asked to enjoy the show called A Tale of the Elephant Trunk Hill organized by the Elephant Trunk Hill Scenic Area at 08:00 pm on 9th November this year.
Yesterdayour company was invited to visit the Chuanshan Park which Ive long heard of yet never been to. As a member of VisitOurChina, I had the opportunity to have an intimate contact with its intoxicating scenery and marvel at its natural and cultural wonders.
