Yunnan Province

 
Yunnan Province Yunnan, on the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau in the southwest of China, is a land of natural beauty and mystery, which covers an area of 394,000 square kilometers with a population of 40,000,000. Yunnan represents the last great region to join the Chinese empire. Even today many Chinese think of it as a frontier province although it was Kublai and his successor, 200 years before Christopher Columbus, whose forces entered these mountainous lands that lie just below the Tibetan plateau and abut Vietnam, Laos and Burma. There are great places to visit. Kunming , the capital of this province, is a very interesting town. Most independent travellers head for Dali , once called a second Kathmandu. Other Yunnan, highlights are...
 

Lugu Lake in China

 
Lugu Lake in China Lugu Lake is home to the Mosu minority, (China's only matriachal society) and what has to be some of China's most spectacular scenery.The lake is encircled with hills. The water is clean and inviting, with fish swimming in it. The forest around is dense and the air is fresh.It's a 5 hour car ride from Lijiang travelling along some unmade roads but the journey is worth it when you get your first view of the lake and the surrounding mountains of Yunnan and Sechuan provinces. Mystery and charm surround the lake, partly because it was once an unspoiled place and still retains much of its totally natural beauty. On the lake there are five islands. They are different sizes and are like green boats floating on the water....
 

Zhongshan

 
Zhongshan One of the economic boomtowns of Guangdong province, Zhongshan is in a county of 1.3 million people, with an additional 1 million migrant workers. Contrary to the map at left, Zhongshan is in the Pearl River delta, roughly halfway between Macau and Guangzhou (Canton). From Hong Kong, you can reach it directly by ferry, or go through nearby border crossing at Zuhai. Zhongshan has an active and properous industrial environment, including some of the world's largest shoe factories. However, it still manages to maintain an orderly pace of development. The roads are relatively well maintained and modern highway construction seems to be a never-ending project here. There are quite a few wealthy local people around, b...
 

Jiuzhaigou Water Fall

 
Jiuzhaigou Water Fall Located deep in the heart of the Aba autonomous prefecture in Sichuan and 400 kilometers from Chengdu, Jiuzhaigou is an impressive spot offering scenery to rival Guilin and an atmosphere and culture that is not dissimilar to much of Tibet. Jiuzhaigou is actually a huge nature and scenery reserve covering approximately 60,000 hectares situated in the Min Shan mountain range. Ancient Chinese legend has it that the goddess Semo accidentally smashed her mirror here and the pieces which fell down the mountain formed beautiful lakes, streams and waterfalls. Despite official attempts to attract thousands of tourists, Jiuzhaigou remains a surprisingly peaceful and traditional place. Yaks, shrines and prayer wheels are all ...
 

Dujiangyan

 
Dujiangyan Dujinagyan Irrigation Project, the long established water conservation works, is located at Dujingayan City lying in the upper reaches of Minjiang River, which is the longest tributary of Yangtze River. During the Warring States Period (475BC 221BC), Li Bing, a governor of Shu in the Qin State, directed the construction of Dujiangyan Weir. From then on, for more than two thousand years the whole system has been functioning perfectly, serving not only as a flood prevention project but also as an immense source for irrigation of the land around it, as well as a means to facilitate shipping and wood drifting. Qingcheng Mountain, located on the southwest of Dujiangyan City, is one of the birthplaces of Taoism. It boa...
 

Chengdu

 
Chengdu This modernization has no doubt been helped by the important role that Chengdu plays in terms of education and culture in China. Once one of the most important printing centers in the country, Chengdu has a long history as a destination for learned poets and artists to gather and seek inspiration. The great poet Du Fu, made his home here and today there are 14 colleges and an impressive university situated in the city. Nestled amongst this affluence and development is another side to Chengdu. Traditional wooden Chinese architecture that once dominated this city can still be found in the outskirts although it is fast disappearing. What does still exist here however in abundance, is a great street life. Markets and ...

The city is noted for its hot springs. The main sights can be seen in one day. Gushan is a big hill in the eastern suburbs. The Yongquan Shi Temple is more than 1000 years old and has a white jade Buddha statue. Other interesting temples include the Baita temple on the west side of the Yushan hill and the Wuta at the base of Wushi Hill, both in the centre of town....
 

Macau

 
Macau Macau is a wonderful city to stroll around. If youre feeling energetic you could walk to almost all of its sights in one single day (the entire territory covering 7 sq mi/17 sq km). We loved the feeling we got roaming the hilly winding streets and the back alleys. Although the European-style architecture and plazas are unusual for this part of the world, you would never mistake Macau for Lisbon. The territorys most famous landmark is the Church of Sao Paulo (circa 1600). All that remains is the facadethe rest of the church was destroyed by fire in 1835. However, its worth climbing the imposing set of stairs to view the ruins up close, especially at night when the lit-up city is spread out below. Farther on, another...
