Sitting here in Dubai it was fantastic travelling with you, Sin and Co ! While most of your trip was great you didnt hesitate to pull your punches where you found something sub-standard - truly appreciate ! Awaiting the vet's perspective ( I have a pet and hence have a love-hate relationship with some of Dubai vets !). When is your next - looking forward !

Thank you for the kind comments
The next trip will be in April 2013, same dates as this trip. I'll be planning the route this summer, but it will either be Shanghai to Singapore, Mongolia, or Tibet. I will be recruiting a couple of people to join the trip in early 2013, so let me know if you are interested. I'll also have a more appropriate set of cars, but more on that soon.

Thanks. But then again, China is very photogenic, unlike me !

The typical mis-conception is that Aman Junkies are mega rich well healed travellers who would not think twice about shelling out $1,000+ a night to stay at these uber luxurious resorts. The truth is that many Aman Junkies, including myself, are not particularly wealthy....

Brilliant Photographic Skills !
I wonder did you come up this list after you have done most of them or before you did any of them? For that makes a lot of difference... I got a feeling you must have filled up the list with things you have already done instead really coming up with a list with all things you haven't done but always wanted to do, just a feeling though..

I've actually had this list for 5 years now, since seeing the movie. Still have 4 or even 5 to do since this trip does not really count as the Silk Road. I already have a second list. Would love to hear yours....

hi Dean, I am not an expert at all. I am just interested in that religion. bust since I am chinese, I could read many books about that area. are you still in China? please feel free to ask me any Qs as needed.
5th May 2012

Yes, I live and work in Shanghai. If I ever get fired, I'm going to head to the Dong and Miao Villages and stay there for a year. I would love to write a book about the Chinese ethnic minorities. Would need the help of an expert like you though.

Thanks G,
It has been a blast. Will do another trip, either to Tibet or Mongolia, next April. Then will have enough material for a book. You might want to join the next trip?

Amazing Journey
I loved following your trip around China and I can't believe it has ended. One month on the road in China is quite an accomplish! Cheers to planning next year's trip.
1st May 2012

Hey sorry
In the end we couldn't afford to stop off in Hangzhou as people had planes to catch. When do you guys leave China? Once I get the driving bug again, I'll pop down for a weekend with my dog. (The Oakwood Residences accept pets).

haha, the problem in Qiandongnan religion is accommodation. it is hard to find a good and clean one. but I think it is also great to enjoy the real family house.
1st May 2012

I loved the place
You seem an expert of the region. Let's stay in touch and hopefully you can give me advice for next time I head to the Dong Villages
