China, 2011


These photos were taken during our trip to China in October/November, 2011.

Our trip to China began with a visit to Shanghai, a city that we found most impressive, and to some of the "water towns" to its west. We then flew to Xi'an, the ancient capital of China, mainly to see the famous "terracotta army" although we discovered that the city of Xi'an was a place well worth visiting in its own right.

Next, we travelled to the south of China and visited various small towns and villages. Some, notably Lijiang and Ping'an, were overdeveloped tourist centres while others, such as Zhaoxing and Chengyang, were beautiful "living" villages in which we felt very welcome.

We finished our trip by spending a couple of nights in Hong Kong before returning home.
