    I have literally never experienced anything like this. This area was carved by the gods themselves and the hotel must surely have been their home-stay. If you want 5 star lodging with an authentic connection to China, this is your place. Brian Linden could not have been any more hospitable as he takes pride in more than just his hotel. He knows the place intimately and is invested in your well being as much as he is from benefiting from your business.

    The Linden Centre is a beautiful hotel with a sense of history and every modern convenience. The rooms are stylishly furnished with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. There a nice touches and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone speaks English and it is possible to arrange tours and activities on site. The bar serves excellent cocktails and has a selection of wine. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a choice between western and Chinese breakfast. I only sampled the western breakfast and enjoyed good coffee, eggs, juice and toast.

    We arrived in Shaxi in the late afternoon. There was a crisp freshness in the air that was, without a doubt, the smell of Spring. We dropped our bags off at our inn, located just outside of town, and rushed out to capture the rich afternoon light with our cameras.

    ... a lot of geniune little restaurants where the Chinese people eat (as opposed to foreigner-geared more formal restaurants). So I like it a lot.

    I'm heading to Lijiang tomorrow morning - I booked a ticket on a bus leaving the hostel at 8 am tomorrow morning; it's a 3-hour bus ride. I've heard two conflicting opinions now of it - one is that it's a giant tourist trap, and the other that it's absolutely beautiful. I guess I'll find ...

    ... on a street called 'Foreigner Street!' The hostel we're staying at has no other English speaking guests there - if any other guests at all - we haven't seen many! This is quite a refreshing change because Kunming was so large that you could walk around all day and not see any other English people but you knew that when you reached the confines of the hostel - all the Chinese you learnt that day could go out the window, you were back to your comfort zone and ...

The buildings are beautiful with the tile roofs, wood carvings on the doors and shutters, scenes of landscapes, birds and flowers, tattoo-like paintings, gargoyle creatures under the roof overhangs that remind me of totem pole animals and red lanterns. ...
