The China Of Your Imagination - Yangshuo
Yangshuo, a small town in China's south, has long been on the bucket list for visitors to the country, and it's easy to see why. Set amongst craggy limestone scenery, on the banks of the River Li, this is the China of your imagination. A well plied route sees travellers take a tourist boat from the nearby city of Guilin, taking visitors up the river to Yangshuo, immersing you in the Chinese countryside. The town is well used to receiving visitors, with many locals speaking English, and a wide range of cafes and restaurants serving food from around the world.

Cycling In India
Say to someone that you're thinking of cycling in India, and they might look at you as if you're crazy. Indeed you would be if considering a jaunt on two wheels around Mumbai or Delhi's traffic-thronged streets. Head out into the countryside though, and it's a different story. In fact in many ways, exploring villages by bicycle is the ideal way to experience rural life in India. The pace of cycling means that you're able to drink in the detail much better than if simply passing through by car; you’re also likely to interact with friendly villagers easily, should you want to.
