China 2014: Part Nine of Eleven
The Chinese Adventure: Yangshuo County
Flying out of Chengdu and now arriving into the beautiful countryside of Yangshuo County, Southern China and you get the feel for how big this country is! different terrain, climate, attitudes etc. The relaxed pace of things here was a welcome break and the Phoenix Pagoda Fonglou Retreat is one of the best accommodations I’ve ever stayed in, it was more like living in the home of a Chinese family, Lily and the all the staff were amazing ~ if you ever visit the Yangshuo area I couldn’t recommend this place enough! The main reason I wanted to visit here was actually a photo I saw on the web from one of my favourite photographers, Trey Ratcliff, it was of Laozhai Mountain and I knew I just had to see this amazing place!
