3 Unusual Chinese Locations

China is such a large and diverse country. It is no surprise that many tourists often follow the same itinerary. I did the same on my trip to China. It was after returning home that I discovered many interesting and unusual locations, which I wish I had visited. Maybe next time.

1-      Zhangjiajie National Forest. Situated in Hunan province, this national park rose to fame after the release of the 2009 movie, Avatar. Day tours and hiking are a common activity in this marvellous forest. And with a range of hotels on offer, why not stay and experience the sights in your on time.

2-      ‘Shangri- la.’ Zhongdian has been dubbed as the Shangri-La. Known for its remote temples and rugged scenery, Zhongdian is the start of the Tibetan world.  Budget hostels are plentiful whilst hill top hotels offer scenic views. With the option of either air or bus, getting to this mysterious town can be easier than anticipated.

 3-      Bing’an Ancient Town, Guizhou. A traditional town located alongside the river. Time appears to have stopped in this magical site. Once the only form of access was by boat but for travellers today a short bus ride from Chishui, shuttles day visitors to this remote sanctuary.
