Getting to the hotel from the airport was easy, if you like bumping your way along a dirt road with potholes everywhere. When we arrived at Lijiang Old Town it took us quite a long time walking around asking people but that was because we were pronouncing the hotel, 'Hexy' when it should have been pronounced 'Hershey.' The ladies at the check- in counter were not very fluent in English so we had trouble communicating with them. Though two men who work for the hotel wanted to practice their English on us, their names were Michael and Ryan, they were very helpful. We got put in to a room but one of our party didn't like the surrounding ambient noise of live music late into the night nor the loud tourists in the street in the morning. He asked to change rooms and we got put in to a beautiful, secluded spot in the hotel complex. Until a huge group of loud Chinese tourists filled the whole courtyard up, not so peaceful. The whole room was quite clean, with cleaners coming in on random days. I would recommend the Hexi hotel because it was right in the middle of the old town.

This means we plan to arrive in Laos next week, and then go through Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar before heading to Singapore in late November. Vietnam gets missed off this list, but becomes the fall back next year if we can't get to India after all. So now we just need to find a ship off ...

It's quite a walk down to the viewing platforms. We were there early so the sun hadn't reached into the gorge and the wind was still really cold. At least there weren't too many people there as the ...
... stage which is a rarity in rural China. There were tiny little shops around the square. I bought a pendant made by the lady who owned the store. A tiny bar only had room for about 10 customers.
Beyond the town was a lovely old arched bridge. The town is a popular set for movies and there was a movie being shot on the bridge while we were there.
After leaving Shaxi Andy pointed out a mountain range in the distance and said that's where ...
... outside the guesthouse. We were able to take our time and enjoy the stunning scenery, not just of the gorge but also the countryside and the fields and village. It was a good walk down and back again and there was no one except locals about. Oh, except that we bumped into the crass Australian man who continued to make stupid comments. We had an interesting minivan ride back to Lijiang and was probably one of the worst trips I've ever had, not helped by the state of the road, ...
