November 4, 2004 - November 7, 2004

Heaven on earth. Perhaps the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Do the slow raft trip down the river to Yangshuo if you do nothing else. Against my will I went to the impressions show on Saturday night - I've never cried from sheer beauty in a theatre before! Avoid the mediocre food on the tourist street and eat in the older part of town near the market - you won't regret it.

April 10, 2005 - April 14, 2005

Golden Palm resort in Yalong bay was a lovely relaxing end to our trip. The beach was almost deserted in April and water temperature perfect. Be warned, however, Sanya is a decent, if pricey, beach resort but forget about culture. The so-called ethnic village near Sanya is a tacky and horrible rip-off. Use local buses and visit a real one inland if you can.

April 9, 2005 - April 12, 2005

We took the Z19 overnight to Xian - very comfortable and fun! Stayed in Paradise resort, beautiful and quiet. We loved Xi'an city centre and the old city atmosphere. The terracotta warriors were mind-blowing.

April 5, 2005 - April 8, 2005

Traveling with four cousins, I flew from Shenzhen to Beijing. We stayed at the Bamboo Garden hotel, a wonderful hotel in the hutongs near Gulou bridge. Beijing was a very friendly city - easier to navigate than we expected. Three days was not enough and I intend to return for at least a week next year.
