Our days In Beijing

My last few days in Xinjiang passed pretty quickly. I visited a few temples around the city, ate at the nicer restaurants and generally lazed about until it was time to leave. The next day I got up early to catch the train to Beijing.

Mei Jia Wu Longjing Tea Culture Village

Not too many cities deserve such a name as paradise on earth, but Hang Zhou in China does. Too many cities now in China, desperate with economic development, are losing their souls, but Hang Zhou is not. Why so? Nature blessing and human efforts are the answers.

Shopping Along Nanjing Road

After being used to the sweltering heat of Shanghai, we went for our walk around Shanghai. Nanjing Road East is a pedestrian street that is one of the busiest of its kind in the world – it has thousands of shops, millions of people, and a whole lot of street hawkers shouting “Hey mister, hey lady, wanna buy a watch?”. The road goes for a couple of kilometers and ends at the Bund, which is a large pedestrian walkway bordering the Huangpu River.

Three Gorges Dam Cruise Tour

As there was a long weekend at the beginning of May for Labor Day in China, so we decided to go on another China vacation to go the Three Gorges Dam. The dam itself is one of Chinas most expansive undertakings, which is located in Yichang set to become the worlds largest hydro-electric power station, along the Yangtze River. Construction began in December of 1994 and it is not expected to be fully operational until 2011. While there are many benefits to the dam, such as flood control and clean power, it has also been a controversial project because the flooding of the reservoir has already displaced approximately 1.4 million people and submerged many cultural relics. The water wont reach its maximum level of 175m until the end of 2008.
