"This side of the world - South China" kleine_dries's Profile

Harbour in HeYuan

Living in the South of China, we try to take the opportunities to go away for the weekends to see other places and ways of life.
This is one of the trips we did, to HeYuan, about 2,5 hours by bus from DanShui, our home. Although a provincial town, it is located next to a huge lake. We hired a boat for the afternoon and had a nice time on the water.

DanShui and surroundings

This is close to where we live. Having some English to work with, this is a guarantee for a Hash every Saturday. One of these hashes got us to appreciate our surroundings even more. Close to the see, with the mountains in the back.

Dragon Boat races in DaYaWan

We were lucky enough to participate in the "international" dragon boat races for DaYaWan. Although being 4th (out of 5) of the ladies teams we had loads of fun and made all the local newspapers!


Sometimes we go further north as that is where a lot of the known places are in China, this one was on the wall, unfortunately I can't remember the location, but it was about 2,5 hours drive from Beijing and very rustic. Absolutely stunning!
