China, where to begin? It’s such a vast country with so many regional differences it’s like visiting a dozen countries all in one. From the ocean to the dessert, river valleys to mountain peaks, China really has it all. The cuisine is quite varied, but delicious everywhere, you just might not always know what you’re eating! Yes, it can be a bit pushy at times, and you’ll rely heavily on “loose” interpretations from google translate (just download it before you go because you can’t access google here!), but there’s so much to discover.
China was the first stop on our great big trip around the world in Guangzhou, near Hong Kong. The metropolitan area is the largest in the world, although we didn’t realize it during our visit. It was clean, efficient, and easy to navigate. The perfect start for our year away!
