So then, with no other real …

Nach knapp drei Wochen China und etlichen Gesprächen mit anderen Reisenden und hier Lebenden, wird für uns langsam das Bild des Wesens der Chinesen sichtbarer. Stark verwundert hat uns der ausgeprägte Egoismus der Leute. Zwar soll die Gemeinschaft in Familie und unter Freunden sehr harmonisch und aufopferungsvoll sein, auf der Straße ist sich …

The bus ride into Dali proved to be one of the most pleasant rides we had experienced in China. Our driver was smoke-free and the passengers were quiet, making for a lovely three hours into Old Town. The hostel we selected, ran by Australians, was fittingly named Jade Emu. These guys thought of everything for travelers and prided themselves in …

The difference between Da li and Li Jiang and all comparisons are inherently unfair,Lijiang being a small rural traditional Naxi town that has been expanded into a city the size of brisbane and Dali the ancient capital of an ancient selfe sustained state that has preserved itselfe into the modern era(culturally).The difference is that Dali has no …

Graham and I tried to find a paragliding site by ourselves in the Dali area. We took a local bus towards a likely looking site at th end of the lake. There was a Bai woman in traditional dress on the bus. The women still wear the traditional costume which includes a brightly coloured head dress with a white band. The white part is important as …

    A very nice hostel, chilled and incredibly refreshing when you usually have to deal with underqualified staff in some Chinese hostels.. The staff at Jade Emu is helpful and nice, ready to assist you with whatever problem you have. The rooms are also nice, as are the common areas.

    a bit of Aussie flavour in china, but not too much

    Jade Emu and Jade Roo are owned by an Australian named Dave. This is good in many respects as you can buy good Aussie beers and stay in comfortable accommodation with western style dunnys. The food is good but a little pricey. Their new western food manager Kevin is sure to improve the tastes and the Chinese food section (yes they are separate for some reason) is good food and a bit cheaper. Staff there are friendly and the local bar flies are great fun with a wealth of local knowledge. It is not the cheapest by a long shot but the thursday night killer pool comp is open to all. Dave the owner is not above cheating though.

    Fantastic accommodation - brand new place with all amenities you need. Staff were really kind and helpful - owner very hands-on and interested in guests welfare. Really good food - in fact, I have no negative comments to make and would definitely recommend it to other travellers.

    This place is perfect. They have two guesthouses next to one another. Dave and his wife consider everything their guest might need or want. Everyone comes for a couple of days and ends up staying for a month. They have free laundry, one complimentary bike, pool table, free internet with FB and wifi on all floors in both locations. Centrally located, mountain side, between west gate and the wall.
