"An odd little town" Yichuan by bhemak

Yichuan Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

There is no reason to come here really

This town of about 15,000 is about 15km south of Longmen grottoes, or 30km south of Luoyang. I lived in the town for one month as taught english here. At first I thought I was the first foreigner here. Later I met a Cameroonian who teaches at the local middle school. I'd get a few strange looks as still most people had never seen a foreigner. Some times people would seemingly sneak up and yell things to me in the local dialect (which I can't understand). It was fun to be so unique for a little while.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Innocent and interested people, totally untainted China
  • Cons:no real sites, hard for foreigners to get around
  • In a nutshell:Just a small town in China

    If you received strange looks from the local Yichuan residents then imagine what reaction that Cameroonian guy got.
