Throughout the many travels I have done, this one comes close to being my top destination. From the breath taking views to the different cultural experiences, this trip has opened my eyes.
We started off the trip in Lijiang city, within the Yunnan Province of China. This city is situated at an elevation of 2,400m above sea level. Upon arrival to our hotel, we pass through streets that seem to be in the midst of trees and mountains. Once we arrived at the hotel, its was another world. Passing through the traditional Chinese styled building, I entered the garden where I saw the beautiful traditional folk dance performed by the locals.
After resting, we ventured out to explore the old town of Lijiang. Here’s an interesting fact, did you know, that the architecture of the Japanese animated movie, “Spirited Away” was inspired by the buildings of the Old Town. Anyway, back to the old town. As we walked through the town, it was like the town has come alive with the night. Lights glows at every corner, restaurants, and shops were full of people, from tourist to locals. As the name suggest, all building within the old town are in traditional architecture, therefore, it makes you feel as though you have left the modern world and enter into the pass.
Passionate about life, and the beauty it offers.
