"you take my breath away..." Top 5 Page for this destination Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region by liemel225

sand as far as your eyes can see

living my whole life in a tropical country i was not able to experience or even grasp the idea of being surrounded by mountains of sand like this. and to think they can even have entertainment like driving around the desert in a 4x4, sliding down the sand, riding camels and horses during sunset. it was all in all an experience i didnt even imagine/expect. but it was all worth the "sacrifices"

the other side of the desert

the mongolian grassland is a sight to behold as well... this is where you will see the normal lifestyle of the mongols. the houses, the business, and yes, life - as in the green grass. its a vast green plains combined with the bluest of blue of the skies makes you think that surely God made wonders.

a tale to be told all my life

the experience of dirty bathrooms, dirty sleeping area and very weird food are memories for life. even if the experiences of crying involuntarily inside the dirtiest bathroom ive ever been into... or to the sleepless night inside the coldest / dirtiest "hotel".. but still come to think of it i survived.. and it made a new person out of me... it made me feel so blessed and made me realize that contentment is a way to hapiness...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a story only few can tell
  • Cons:not for the pampered
  • In a nutshell:just like a mistake that taught a good lesson, so was my inner mongolian experience... it drew out contentment in me.
