In the past couple of years, as part of the big economical plan to
stimulate internal spending, the Chinese government is putting a lot of
effort into encouraging the development of tourism. During long holidays,
like this coming national day on 1st of Oct. (3 day holiday from 1st-3rd,
Mon-Wed, Oct), the government officially make the Saturday and Sunday
before workdays and then everyone has the 2 days back on the 4th and the
5th. Connecting with Sat. and Sun. on the 6th and 7th, it's a 7 day
What would you do if you
get 7 days off? Travel.
However, as a result of the surge
in travelling demand, bad things happen. Besides the main tourist
attractions, local tour usually offer other sites packaged a one day
trip. Sad to say, some of these other sites are just sites that are put together recently for the sake of charging entrance fees.
I am tricked into a
"museum" next to the TerraCotta burial where I find the wall
painting (probably 1 year old) on the right. Nice, but when I only got a
day to spend, I very much would like to skip this one. So when you travel
in mainland China, try to be a smart tourist.
Lunch at a nearby restaurant. Lots of fun.
ShaoZi Noodle - Noodle ok and the meat sauce is heavenly. 3
Lu Shan GeGe Noodle - Looks plain but the noodle has a raw natural taste. Very different from spaghetti's refined taste. 4
people have big appetite. This big bowl of fish is just one of their
4 dishes. Give Kam a bowl like that and a refrigerator, he can stay
alive in a desert for a month.
look water pouring - this fella is adding water to a tea cup with
this super long spout kettle. This kind of water pouring is
used with BaBao [Eight_Treasure ]
Tea originated from the SiChuan province. The tea is sweet and the
serving is cool.
