Guilin supposed to be one of the most beautiful places in China. It’s consider to be the most beautiful limestone karst area. If you’ve never been to China you’ve most probably never heard about this place. But once you start to plan your trip in China, Guilin will be offered to you as one of the top ten places to visit. Its scenery is so beautiful that you can find it also on the Chinese twenty yuan bank note. We…

Banyan Tree Yangshuo

Banyan Tree Yangshuo

Banyan tree hotels is a network of luxury hotels located mostly in Asia. On May 2017 we visited one of their 13 hotels in China. Banyan tree Yangshuo. ”Gaze on a crystalline backdrop of emerald rice fields, mist-shrouded limestone mountains, meandering rivers and curious caves and feel your heart lighten”…. this is what the official website says and I must say it is exact!   LOCATION The hotel is located about 10 km from Yangshuo city in a lovely little…

do you speak chinese?

do you speak chinese?

I knew I will have to start learning Chinese right after our arrival. Everyone who has ever been to China (and I guess it’s not so many people) can tell you that nobody, really NOBODY can speak English. Well somebody can for sure but it’s definitely bullshit to rely on that you will meet this ‘’English speaking somebody’’ (because you won’t) So I found a language school and started learning. It was quite easy but learn how to count to…

Už umíš čínsky???

Už umíš čínsky???

To, že se budu muset čínsky naučit aspoň trochu, mi bylo jasný hned po příjezdu. Každý, kdo už v Číně někdy byl (a těch lidí zas tolik není) vám potvrdí, že nikdo, ale skutečně NIKDO anglicky v Číně nemluví. Dobře, tak někdo asi jo, ale spoléhat na to, že se tady pohodlně domluvíte anglicky je totální nesmysl. Našla jsem si tedy jazykovku a začala se učit. Ze začátku to šlo hladce. Naučit se počítat do deseti, představit se a zeptat se jak…

Piece of paradise on the dongjiang lake

Piece of paradise on the dongjiang lake

Until today I still don’t know how I found this place. I just remember that we had a free weekend and we wanted to go somewhere ”nearby” (which can be quite difficult in China) but anyway I checked all possible travel guides and found nothing but places we’ve already been to. So I simply looked at the Google maps and search for nearby places. I found a big lake with some island in the middle. So I thought let’s go…

šílené čínské (zlo)zvyky část 2

šílené čínské (zlo)zvyky část 2

Tenhle díl věnuju tématu nakupování. Číňani milujou nakupování a milujou slevy. Na nakupování jako takovém není nic moc zvláštního nebo zajímavýho. Děláme to všichni (i když já chodím nakupovat jen proto, že musím a nijak zvlášť zábavný mi to nepřijde) Ale v Číně se i taková obyčejná věc může proměnit ve skutečný zážitek a ne vždycky úplně příjemnej…   NÁKUP OBLEČENÍ Nakupování v obchodech. Jakmile vlezete do obchodu, téměř okamžitě máte za zadkem prodavačku, která do vás hustí naučenej monolog…

Everywhere you go she is following you. If you are lucky she only…
