"1 1/2 years in China" China by Katie&Jordi

China Travel Guide: 30,703 reviews and 88,008 photos

China has been our home country from February 2005 to July 2006, enough time (we believe) to be able to get a good feeling of such a huge country.

We have spent 10 months (Feb-Dec 2005) in Anshan, Liaoning and 7 more (Jan-July 2006) in Jiaozuo, Henan.

During this time, we have had lots of experiences. We have had time to explore a number of places in China, too:
- We have been to Beijing soooo many times.
- While living in Anshan, we were able to visit a lot of the Dong Bei region (Northeastern China): Liaoning (Dalian, Shenyang, Xingcheng, Dandong), Jilin (Changchun), Heilongjiang (Harbin), Inner Mongolia.
- Our 2005 Summer Trip took us to the Far West, through Gansu, Xinjiang, Qinghai and Sichuan.

- During first half of 2006, we have lived in Jiaozuo, and have visited several places in Henan (Kaifeng, Luoyang), and Hebei (Jimingyi).
- Our 2006 May Holiday Trip (which took us to Guizhou, through Changsha and Guilin) deserves a very special mention. Guizhou would end up being, by far, our favourite area in China.

Also, during our 2006 Winter Vacation, we passed through Hong Kong, Macao on our way to the Philippines.

Take a look at all these pages and you will find out everything about our experience in China.
