No, it was not the landscape: I went there expecting a marvelous landscape, and saw a marvelous landscape. The surprise was... the city. A modern, organized, and very tourist oriented city, far from the rural look I was expecting. Of course, after learning in location that it was the first Chinese town opened to tourism, everything makes sense. But... my surprise.

    Unusual experience, the water coming down the side of the building, did anybody get caught out, and get wet, or is that the fun side?
