I have visited  Hongcun. I travelled one and half hour from Huangshan bus station to Hongcun ( 24 yuan ticket). It is enough one hour to make a tour, there is nothing to be seen. I was disappointed with neglected, dirty, decrepit houses. At least they could be refurbished and painted if the ... Details

At the last night of 2011, our shuttle bus left Xian and headed for the Yellow Mountain. I and other passengers welcomed 2012 in the shuttle bus.

I was not excited to celebrate the arrival of 2012 because I didn’t sleep well in the shuttle bus. In front of me was a huge guy. He was too ... Details

I had the opportunity to visit Yellow Mt the last weekend in October and the weather was perfect.

At least I have a heater this evening, and the miniscule room I’m in somehow manages to accommodate 3 bunk beds, sleeping a total of 6 people. My Chinese roommates, I notice, have all opted for the same meal as I, and so we sit huddled around our tea eggs, pot noodles and heater.

It’s before 5am, New Year’ Eve 2007 and I shouldn’t be awake, but I am. It’s been a night of snatched pieces of sleep in between long, cold wakeful hours. My small flask that has doubled as a life-saving hot-water bottle is now beginning to get a film of ice on it. Nothing else ... Details

In an effort to spice up what would otherwise have been a largely forgettable New Year, I came up with a last minute plan to spend three days at Yellow Mountain [huángshān|黄山]. I have divided my journey into three, as follows:

Going to Huangshan reminds me of the hit Beatles' song "The Long and Winding Road". What is so breath-taking about the experience are the out-of-this -world scenes! The rolling sea of clouds you see once you're at the peak will remind you how minute we are in this vast expanse of creation! ... Details
