Reminiscing About Food in Beijing

I went to China on a group packaged holiday back in June 2018 and I only got the chance to sort through my photos now because I was super busy at work. Scrolling through my photos, I saw the photos of food and it is making me missing China so much!! I was actually going to Inner Mongolia, China, and we had the choice of … Continue reading Reminiscing About Food in Beijing

China Travels: Fengdu Ghost City (丰都鬼城)

Before I left on this trip to Mainland China, I have heard about Fengdu Ghost City. I could never understand what they meant by Ghost City despite reading up about it. I had thought that Fengdu Ghost City is an abandoned town which no one lives in and it’s inhabited by ghosts. When I arrived, I realised how wrong I was. Hahahahaha. It essentially is a way larger … Continue reading China Travels: Fengdu Ghost City (丰都鬼城)

China Travels: Yangtze River and the Three Gorges Dam (长江三峡与三峡大坝)

The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia and the third longest river in the world. We were on a 5D4N river cruise on the Yangtze River aboard Victoria Jenna. The cruise was absolutely lovely even though I was forced to totally disconnect from digital life for the entire duration of the cruise and have to actually talk to real people. 🙂 Still, it was … Continue reading China Travels: Yangtze River and the Three Gorges Dam (长江三峡与三峡大坝)

China Travels: Huanglong (Golden Dragon) Cave, Zhangjiajie (黄龙洞, 张家界)

Initially, I thought that Huanglong (Golden Dragon) Cave was just like any other cave that I have visited before. Shitloads of stalactites  and stalagmites throughout the cave. Boy was I so wrong. Huanglong Cave is HUGE. It is the largest cave system that I have ever been to so far. Spanning 15 kilometres in length, if I remembered right, only about a third of the cave … Continue reading China Travels: Huanglong (Golden Dragon) Cave, Zhangjiajie (黄龙洞, 张家界)

China Travels: TianZi Mountains, Yuanjiajie (天子山, 袁家界)

TianZi Mountains was also another major highlight on my recent trip to Mainland China. TianZi Mountains might not ring a bell to you but this would probably look quite familiar to some of you: Yeap, TianZi Mountains is where they filmed the background for Avatar! The entire place was just columns of mountains as far as your eye can see. It’s pretty amazing and I can tell … Continue reading China Travels: TianZi Mountains, Yuanjiajie (天子山, 袁家界)

China Travels: Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon (大峡谷, 张家界)

The biggest highlight from my recent trip to Mainland China has got to be Zhangjiajie (张家界). Zhangjiajie refers to the prefecture city and it it one huge area and not the name of a specific place as I have previously thought. Even the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is one massive area with many other small towns and counties encompassed within. Our first stop into the Zhangjiajie National … Continue reading China Travels: Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon (大峡谷, 张家界)

China Travels: Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient City (凤凰古镇)

Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient City, in the Hunan Province, is one of the highlights from my recent trip to Mainland China. It has been said that Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient city is the prettiest among all the ancient cities that you can find within China and while I haven’t been to all the ancient cities in China, it definitely ranks as the prettiest one that I’ve ever … Continue reading China Travels: Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient City (凤凰古镇)
