- Nine horses, snake wine & goose liverGuilin, a scene from an alien movie, with its lush green paddy fields and magnificent limestone towers sprouting up amongst them. You have to be here to experience it, so beautiful and so foreign. Ger and I Posted by imalazyj in G^2 Adventures | May 25, 2014
- X marks the spot.I arrived in Xi'an pretty excited. Chengdu was amazing, but Xi'an was the start of seeing proper ancient China. The end of the Silk Road, Xi'an has an entire wall, the drum and bell towers, the pagodas, a Muslim quarter Posted by Kiwi Holly in Well ni hao China! | May 25, 2014
- New emotions every dayI could get used to this: an ice-cream now, a milkshake later and a frozen yoghurt on the afternoon snack.

- The Great WallWow! That's all my mouth could say first time I laid eyes on the Great Wall. I'm not exaggerating - it's really outstanding! I walked part of the Great Wall in the site of Badaling, and the views were amazing. Posted by Billabongirl in Citizen of the world | May 21, 2014

- What a wonderful city!I've been here for no longer than 30 hours and I keep amazed by how it works: motocicles and cars are noiseless, the subway works like a Swiss watch, it's a very intelligent and person-friendly city, and almost everyone scratches Posted by Billabongirl in Citizen of the world | May 20, 2014
- Culture Shock RevisitedAfter spending 3 weeks in China I can say with confidence that culture shock well and truly is alive and kicking!! I was 100% affected by it. To the extent that I was questioning my whole trip away. Posted by JonAndSara in A Long Way For Dumplings | May 20, 2014

- ChongqingKnown as the 'Summer Furnace' for it's oppressive humidity and searing heat, Chongqing could also be known for being crap. With more than 30 million people, Chongqing was an amazing mix of filth, squalor, and a touch of materialism.
