Boat trip on the Li river

Created: June 11, 2018

The 40 km part of the Li river between Guilin and Yangshou is world famous. The mystic landscape is motive for nearly every second Chinese painting. Although we had bad weather, this trip was incredible.

Daxuzhen

Created: June 11, 2018

This little village has a charming old town (basically one street). The atmosphere is very laid back. Worth a visit when you're in the Guilin region.

Great Wall, Jinshanling

Created: June 11, 2018

Amazing, just amazing. This part of the wall is still an insiders' tip. But considering the authenticity and beauty of this part of the wall, it's only a matter of time until it will be crowded too (like Badaling).

Temple of Heaven

Created: June 11, 2018

The temple of heaven is not only a complex of historic religious buildings but also a very vivid park. You will find musicians, swordsmen, old people doing tai chi and lots of other stuff going on. My favorite place in Beijing.

Forbidden City

Created: June 11, 2018

Biggest palace on earth, astonishing. Take your time to explore all corners of this area. I would recommend to go up the hill in Jingshan Park to see the palace from above (photo was made from there).

Lijiang Oldtown

Created: June 07, 2018

Lijiang Oldtown was completely rebuilt in the 1990's. Still it has a very authentic historic flair. A lot of beautiful shops, restaurants, streets and other stuff to explore. When in Yunnan definitely a must visit. But beware: there will be masses of Chinese tourists ;)

Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park

Created: April 08, 2018

Literally paradise on earth, the most beautiful place I have ever seen in my life! It is exactly as colourful and beautiful as you see on the photos! Most people get in by taking a 10h bus from Chengdu. Tickets are 200 Yuan and include the bus inside the national park that brings you to the main points of attractions but you can also explore the valley by foot. There are also a couple of Tibetan villages in the valley.

Also called the "Avatar mountains" because they look like they are just floating in the air. Student tickets are 160 Yuan (2016) and give you entry for 4 days, because the area is gigantic and you can't possibly explore it in only one day. Cable car up the mountains are an additional 60 Yuan but you can also walk up (exhausting but rewarding). There is of course a McDonalds right on top of the mountain. Beware of the monkeys, they are very cheeky.
