Tourists have more fun in Beijing

Tourists have more fun in Beijing

Hi everyone,

As you may have read in a previous blog I ended my TransMongolian Express trip in UlaanBaatar instead of Beijing as I did not have enough time. Besides that I went to Beijing already two times (in 2009 and in 2014). In the future I will fly to Beijing for work as well due to an aircraft change. Not mentioning I love Beijing and China. However the first time I visited China in particular, I was 19 years old and a student in Seoul, South-Korea – I felt completely lost in Beijing as it was very cold (December), I got immediately ripped off by a illegal taxi driver and worst thing – my camera got stolen after the Beijing trip in Shanghai! All my pictures of for example the Great wall were gone! Now I’m older, more experienced, I do not get a culture shock very fast  and more careful with my belongings. I felt so terrible still after years about losing my pictures – that I forced my boyfriend to spend our holidays in China in the year 2014 so I could re-take my pictures again. (Nothing is sponsored, all pictures are mine, scroll down for the Dutch version)

Hi everyone,

This year I was lucky – I got a ‘spontaneously 6-day layover’ in Xiamen on my roster. Perfect  to head out for a trip to Guilin & Yangshuo, the countryside of China where the famous Karst mountains are located. This area is mostly known for it’s karst landscapes and impressive nature – and is a must do if you are traveling in China! I’ve been to different places in China (mostly cities), and I must say the vibe around this area feels different in a good way. (all pictures are taken by me – nothing is sponsored)
