Aug 3, 2006 - Yangshuo

In the Guangxi province lies the famous-with-backpackers-village of Yangshuo. Hip western style bars and cafes line the clean cobbled pedestrian-only streets, playing John Fogerty and serving up fish and chips with Bud on tap and bootlegged Hollywood DVD's to enjoy on the bigscreen. Close to the Vietnamese border the locals share a common flare with their conical hats, floating markets, and a taste for exotically discusting cuisine like snake eyeball stew or fried donkey balls.

So Many Roads...

May 5, 2006 - Luizhou

We had a short wait for a bus this morning as the first one was full. So during the wait we had the delight of more public toilets!

Oct 29, 2004 - Yangshou

After the boat we got a bus a train and another bus, to finally arrive in Yangshou. It is surrounded by little mountain peaks. Pictures to follow. We leave 31/10 on a night bus to HK. Yangshou is a great place to chill-out as we discovered! We had a fantastic room right in the centre of town for only 70 Yuan per night (about 4.50gbp) It was a lot more touristy than anywhere else we'd been in China, but then this meant that we could get a cooked breakfast every morning that we were there, which was a nice change!!! The place is surrounded...

Copyright 2004 David Rich 900 Words jdavidrich@yahoo.com CHINA: F u n n y P o i n t y H i l l s R e v i s i t e d Everything you've heard about China is wrong starting with the best place to see its most famous scenery, the funny pointy hills soaring a thousand feet over misty waterways. This paradise actually exists where fishermen float on five bamboo poles lashed to impersonate a raft, spearing fish through cone-shaped nets, red lanterns reflecting off perfectly still waters. The waterways, rafts, conical nets and red lanterns are...
