Suspending disbelief in Shanxi, China

Hanging Temple Shanxi China Johanna Read TravelEater.netI’m not sure which is more unbelievable: that this temple would be built in the first place, that it still exists a millennium and a half later, or that tourists are allowed on to the rickety-looking structure at all, let alone so many at once.  ….

There’s some pretty incredible things to see in Shanxi province. Here’s my latest China story, for Dreamscapes Travel and Lifestyle magazine. If you’re a Globe & Mail subscriber, you’ll get a print copy with your February 10, 2016 newspaper delivery.

For everyone else, here’s the PSF version: Suspending disbelief in Shanxi, and online version: Suspending disbelief in Shanxi.

Remember my first trip to China, when I became a mini-celebrity?

Note: My trips were hosted by the Chinese National Tourism Authority, but no one from the agency reviewed or approved my stories.
