Hi Just wondering what camera you are using? Your pictures are great and I am in the market for a better camera.

Hi Heather. Thanks for your comment. I used a Canon S5 IS for these photos. It's a great camera, and does take great photos.

Didn't get to the Nine Dragon screen in Datong...ran out of time...nice to see your pic of it. Glad you enjoyed China.

You really packed in an incredible number of sites in a short time! Weird food, smoking and spitting--hmm, maybe I'll just enjoy China through blogs. Loved the Li River photo, though, and glad you got to see some amazing treasures.

nǐ haǒ!
Great blog Mel; and if I say so myself, a brilliant selection of photos!! Both really summarise our trip and our shared sentiment towards China as a travel destination. I'm glad I went and experienced all the enjoyable and not so enjoyable aspects of the Country, and i'm also so happy we managed to pull off our 'pact' to travel with one another again, and most importantly you'll be glad to hear, I haven't been put off meeting up with you (the 'feckin cheeky kiwi') again in another part of the world to stroke of more world heritage wonders together!!! Count me in :) And yes, you were missed in Pingyao, you would have just loved the fabulous sunset - I could almost sense the competition between us to get the best photo/composition etc, lol. Off now to read some old South America blogs to remind me of our time together there!!

Great photos!
I've never seen a Shanghai sky so clean, and I live here! BTW I'm not sure the Three Gorges Dam was built to impress tourists (tens of thousands used to die in floods along the course of the Yangtze before the dam was built), though it has always mystified me as to how it is marketed as an attraction.

Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday Melanie. China is a fascinating place and I have always wanted to visit it myself. I believe the blossom trees up North are beautiful in the Springtime also.

Great blog Mel - sounds like it was quite the cultural experience. I just love the 'mini soldier' photo :)

thank you
Your blog post brought back many memories of my time in Morocco. I lived in Kenitra and then on a military base on the edge of the Desert. Many of the places i visited as a kid. I would love to experience those places as an adult. Keep traveling!

Well done yet again, Mel. A very well written and informative document, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Only wish I was 50 years younger so that I could follow in your footsteps. You will have some terrific memories to look back on when you're my age! You go - girl. GIRLS RULE.

The further I read, the more I added to my own 'Nepal wishlist' :-) A great entry - thanks!

What a nice blog!
We are going to Nepal in November and will use this piece to give us a roadmap of where to explore. Really loved it. Thanks.

Thanks for the blog Mel, loved it. Really have to put India on the agenda for sometime in the next couple of years. Looks amazing x

Hi Mel, Geez, am super super jealous!! I so want to do India! Sounds like you had a ball, and will wait to see how Nepal was. Liam has just turned one and we expect no 2 in a little under 2 months away so travelling is not anywhere in my agenda for the next couple of eyars, but I had thought about trying to do just a couple of weeks through India and its good to see it can be done!! We are still in the middle of this merger and things are still up in the air, but nevertheless we muddle on! Having said that I only have 5 days of work left before I'm off on maternity leave again, so we will see what changes are made by the time I return from number 2. Keep up the blogs - I'll travel vicariously through you until I can go again!! luv stace

Wow! What a fantastic experience and what a fascinating place. Must admit I never felt enticed to travel there, but after looking at your photos and reading your blog I have formed a different opinion. Unfortunately we mostly see only the seedier side of India and hear of its problems, so it was refreshing to see another side. Thank you for the opportunity to share your experience. Nanny
