"Don't Waste a Single Grain of Rice" -mom

A travel blog entry by beely


Today we visited the rice terraces - SO GORGEOUS...and this is why my momma always told me that "every grain of rice is a measure of hard work" (it sounds better in Chinese).

I've never seen rice terraces before, and I was in awe at the beautiful terrain and the hard work that goes into …

Way Down South

A travel blog entry by beely


So originally I had planned to visit various places further up north/mid-north, but we ended up flying down to Guilin due to lack of train tickets (did I say this already? I feel like I did). Anyway, we stayed at the Riverside Hostel - it was okay, nothing to rave about, but also nothing to complain about.

Our first day here was spent …

We visit an older tribe of Chinese, now capitalising on the tourist market. It feels strange and uncomfortable, like we have come to gawp at them as in a zoo but they happily mix with the group …

A travel blog entry by lili-and-alexis

My trip, het einde

    The location was good, the staff was great - really friendly and chatty. They go out of their way to help you and their English is clear. The rooms were a bit smelly but I think that was because of the mosquito traps. Everything was also quite clean. Overall, pretty nice stay!
