    History



    View of Moonhill


    In the 1980s, the town became popular with foreign Backpackers, and by the late 1990s, packaged tourists began arriving in greater numbers. At that time, domestic tourists represented only a small fraction, but soon outnumbered foreign tourists by a greater margin in 2005. Today, the town is a resort destination for both domestic and foreign travelers.
    The history of West Street dates back to over 1400 years ago. Since the street is popular with locals and foreigners alike, signs are written in both Chinese and English. Due to the relatively high number of foreign visitors, many locals speak some English unlike Chinese towns of its size.
    The Yangshuo region has numerous locations for climbing, most easily accessible by bicycle, public bus or taxi-van. The most famous of these crags is moon hill with several 5.13 graded lines. Other crags of note include Low Mountain, Twin Gates, Baby Frog, The Egg, Bamboo Grove and Wine Bottle Cliff.


    Theres a lot to do and see here and it was a big hit with the kids

    I could of spent a couple more nights in Yangshuo but the plan was to take the train to Guiyang and fly to Lijiang from there. we wanted to go to black dragon snow mountain as none of us had seen snow before.

    That plan soon went to shit as our flight to Lijiang went from a 7.00 am departure to a 3.30pm departure. Bugger

    Finally on the plane but at least the airline put us in a hotel while we waited.

    Kids practicing there gambling skills, Room came with a Mahjong table







    The kids got to see some snow when we landed. unfortunately it was on a poster

    Lijiang is a perfect combination of historical sites, snow-capped mountains, lakes, and ethnic minority cultures. It is famed worldwide for its UNESCO Heritage Site, the old town of lijiang, which dates back to over 800 years ago.
    Where Lijiang Is

    Lijiang is located in the northwest of Yunnan Province, Southwest China. It is about 500 km (300 mi) northwest of the capital city Kunming, one hour away by air.
    The Features of Lijiang

    • Lijiang is an important transit point along the Ancient Tea Horse Road. It was a center for the economic and cultural communication between various ethnic groups such as the Naxi, Han, Tibetans, and Bai.
    • Lijiang boasts spectacular natural scenery varying from snowy mountains and highland glacial lakes to majestic canyons, making it a great place for outdoor activity lovers.
    • It is a healthy place to escape city stress, with an excellent environment and leisurely lifestyle, which draws a large number of visitors from bustling metropolises.

    We had booked a hotel called LOVE CLOUD BOUTIQUE HOTEL IN THE WATERSIDE.
    (Good Grief)

    Nice place if yer feeling a bit romantic, but unfortunately the sign was in chinese and we wasted a couple of hours trotting around the cobbled streets looking for it.





    Looking at your missus backing out a bad boy would sure be a passion killer i reckon

    A Chiangjiang CJ750


    The CJ750 motorcycle is based on the original 1956 Soviet IMZ (Irbitski Mototsikletniy Zavod) M-72which itself was derived from the earlier German 1938 BMWR71

    That looked like a nice boutique hotel - but I don't like the see-through toilet door! Lol.

    Cheers, keep the pics coming!

    I am flying into Guangzhou on Thursday staying in Foshan. Give me the heads up on any decent beer.

    A few years ago it was all Tsingtao beer served at room temperature- I hope it's improved
