pictures of my various trips to the capitol of China
The best buddhist temple in beijing
The most famous temple in Beijing and a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Even Marco Polo said it, the most wonderful city in Asia. I got there on a very bad day tough, but the Lake was still amazingly beautiful.
The pearl of Jiangsu province, a city full of incredible traditional gardens, history, night life.
the Old Capitol, vital Chinese metropolis with a violent past and splendid preserved original walls
This metropolis doesn't even seem to be in China... another world, another history, going towards the uttermost western developement!
Portuguese/European architecture, cafes, relaxed atmosphere, ancient history and exquisitely spellbound neverland, this was a very nice welcome back before diving into chinese Mainland
The New York of the East, the LA of Asian cinema, the metropolis that never sleeps
Right across the border from Hong Kong, this city looks like what developing China will probably turn into in the next few years
The gateway to explore Yunnan province, I spent the Chinese New Year 2008 there
The pearl of Southeast China, city of splendour, magic and cobbled streets lost in time
Tourist adored Lijiang, home of the Naxi and definitely a good place to chill out for a few days surrounded by magical mountains
The last part of Yunnan, where Tibet starts. This is as far as I got to the real thing for this time around...beautiful small town in the middle of a snow-capped mountain range, more than 3000 metres from sea level.
I had to stop by Chengdu to check out the Panda Breeding centre, unique experience to step close to this amazing and endangered animals...
Here I am in Sichuan province in front of the majesty of the Grand Buddha, a towering 72 metres high statue carved into a cliff!!
Beautiful city that almost outshades Beijing, vibrating inside some amazingly preserved City Walls and inhabited by a colourful Muslim population...
Just outside of Xian lies this amazing collection of terracotta statues, well known around the world as the "Eight Wonder of the World"
The pearl of Shaanxi province, a wonderfully preserved Ming Walled town...and I even got there during the Lantern Festival day!
On the provincial border with Inner Mongolia, near Datong, rises an incredibly monastery literally carved into a cliff...
