I’ve had four incredible trips to China, each hosted by the Chinese national tourism authority:

  • Shaanxi and Shandong provinces (April 2018).
  • Hong Kong, Fujian and Jiangxi provinces (March 2016).
  • Sichuan and Shanxi provinces (August-September, 2015) on assignment for Dreamscapes Travel and Lifestyle Magazine.
  • Shanghai and Hunan province (September 2014) on assignment for Dreamscapes Travel and Lifestyle Magazine.

Articles so far (plus don’t forget my general Asia articles), the latest and organized by location to help your travel planning.

The latest:

Getting there

Note: My trips were hosted by the Chinese national tourism authority, but all opinions are my own and no one from the agency or any of the businesses listed reviewed or approved my articles.
