Have you heard about Chengde?

Have you heard about Chengde?

Don’t be mistaken. I am not talking about Chengdu,  capital city of Sichuan province. I am talking about small town lying 200 km north east from Beijing. Honestly I have been living in China for four years and I haven’t heard about Chengde until this June when I decided to improve my Chinese and found a language program which took place in Chengde where local people speak the most standard Mandarin Chinese of all China. So I spent four weeks…

So here are all the trips we have done in 2017…   JANUARY – FEBRUARY AUSTRALIA Itinerary: Guangzhou – Bangkok – Sydney – Brisbane – Taroom…
