A journey through China from Hong Kong to
This book is illustrated with
maps and photographs and describes an eventful journey through China, from Hong Kong to Beijing, with Explore.
During our very first meal on the Chinese mainland, one of the group was attacked by a rat that had been hiding under
the restaurant table.
This fascinating account not only
covers visits to the main tourist attractions, some better known than others, but also provides an insight into the
way of life, the beliefs and customs of the local people at that time. Discover how the fishermen on the Li River train
their cormorants, enter a home in rural Guilin, walk on a sacred mountain and experience a Sunday market in the country,
where you can watch the locals using the services of the visiting dentist, barber and ear cleaner.
