Hello from our second stop in China, Yangshou.

Described as a legendary backpacker hangout we couldn't help but stop in and check this place out. Probably a bit soft of us given we only have a week in China and will only take in 3 places of interest but hey, when we can get some nice food and wine who's to argue?!

Yangshou is a great, laid-back place to explore the surrounding villages in the nearby countryside. We hired (ladies) bikes and pedaled through rice fields which are situated amidst splendid green-topped limestone peaks which was certainly one of our favourite memories of our trip thus far. As adults you forget just how much fun riding push-bikes can be.

Other than riding pushy's around we simply wandered the streets for a few days practicing our very bad Mandarin on the local restaurant and cafe staff, who gladly kept us talking English. Our lacklustre efforts must've been torturous to them.

We can certainly see why this place is labeled as a legendary backpacker hangout. If you've been in China for sometime this place would be the perfect  remedy to the traveling in China malady.

That's all folks.

Next Pod - Ping Xiang, China (Border with Vietnam).

Love,

Nath and Kat.
