China

Zhangjiajie mountains

Zhangjiajie. Breathtaking tablemountains, what gave inspiration for so many chinese arts. Paintings and poetry.

More recently it was also the inspiration of the floating mountains in James Cameron's Avatar movie. The chinese tourist industry didn't need any more... All around the park, hotels are popping out from nowhere and the prices are skyrocketing...

The sea of bamboo

Shunan Zuhai. A vast bamboo forest near the border of Sichuan province. These bamboo forests, are one of my favorite places on Earth. You can just sit for hours, listening the wind, as it brushes the seren bamboo sea around you. Sweet smell of wet soil and leaves. Frogs, and cicadas giving concert every day. The peace in these bamboo forests is palpable. Peace of mind.

Jiuzhaigou - China

The first stop in China is Jiuzhaigou national park. The colors and the place is absolutely mindblowing. But the endless flood of chinese tourists can ruin the whole experience. I would recommend to everyone to stay in a homestay inside the park for the night, and in the early morning you can look around peacefully. More pictures on my Facebook or Instagram page.
