China (中国)

Back in 2008 I have made my way to China, a fascinating country that also goes by the lovely more romantic name of the Middle Kingdom (中国 in simplified and 中國 in traditional Chinese script). I spend a month backpacking through cities and villages, cycling in the fairytale-like countryside of Guangxi, hiking in the picturesque foothills of the Himalayas in Yunnan, climbing the stunning Huangshan mountains in Anhui Province, and relaxing on the gorgeous beaches of Hainan Dao. It was an amazing trip filled with beautiful images, places, and people.
