Guilin is hot and humid in summer – someone may turn away and find somewhere else to avoid summer heat – however, you’ll probably regret that you miss the lively green rice terraces and breezy Li River Cruise!

I have been a fan of Hong Kong for over 20 years. Last week I finally got a chance to visit the “Pearl of the Orient”. Unlike most tourists to Hong Kong, I go there for local culture and the sites where were used as the scene for Hong Kong TV series and movies.

Last week I went to Kunming, the capital city of Yunnan Province, for my Qingming Festival holiday. Nicknamed the “City of Eternal Spring”, Kunming has incredibly year-round beautiful weather: mild, stable and sunny, no summer heat nor winter chill.

One of our partners in Beijing invited us to explore the Great Wall sections in Shanxi province with them in early March. We have already known that there are around over 20 popular Great Wall sections in the area of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, but the sections in Shanxi were completely new to us!

Spring Festival, known as Chinese New Year, is a big occasion for family reunion that matters a lot for Chinese people. We take our annual Chinese New Year holidays and hop on the trains/cars heading to our hometown – that’s how China carries out “the world’s largest human migration” every year – I am one of these moving people.
After finishing my work in Guilin, I went back to my hometown, a small village in southeast of Guangxi and close to Guangdong, by high-speed rail. That was the day before New Year’s Eve.

Last Saturday the weather finally clear up after a month rain, and I was invited to visit an old town in Yangshuo- Fuli Ancient Town. The Town is featured by painted fans, it decorated with painted landscapes, flowers, birds, insects or traditional Chinese girls. They range from the small hand fans for everyday use to large canopies for wall decorations. Many locals in the town are involved in this ancient craft.

Winter is always considered to be a less-touristy season but it is also the perfect time to reveal and admire the best of Beijing.
Last month, I went to Beijing for business travel with some of my colleagues. The days we were there were dry and cold, but I felt crazy comfortable (especially comparing with the humid-chilly Guilin). The pretty sunshine warmed up our whole 3-day jolly journey.

When I first heard a Cantonese word on TV 20 years ago, I began to dream live in Guangzhou. There are 9 tones in Cantonese language while there are only 4 in Mandarin. I leant more about Cantonese language and Guangzhou from then on. It is amazing to know that the Cantonese is closer to ancient Chinese than Mandarin! It sounds more beautiful if you read a piece of ancient Chinese poems in Cantonese than Mandarin. However, Mandarin is now the only official language in China.
