    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.

    Nothing is more powerful than an idea. Ideas spring people to action and bring the future to our doorstep. Ideas transform current problems into integrated solutions. Ideas propel humanity forward and provide us with a shared sense of purpose.

    Thirty years ago, a man by the name of Brian Linden had an idea. As he watched China modernize …

    Xizhou, a Little Gem in Yunnan

    ... Xizhou is a small rural village about a 15 minute bike ride from the edge of the beautiful and very extensive Lake Erhai. It's not that it is totally undiscovered, but as yet it remains very authentic - it is a living village rather than a shopping centre! It is a charming experience to walk to the main square and en route meet with the dentist, the hairdresser, the wok maker, the tailor. In the centre there is a queue forming by an open air wok. Every 5 minutes or so ...

    Seeking Rural China in Shaxi

    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.

    Farmers (both men and women) worked the fields with their hoes. Occasionally children ran up to us, squealing ...

    ... one had a small difference, which really only stuck out to the Aussies. Monkey and Pigsey (from the `Monkey Magic’ TV show) were standing inside one gate posing for photos (No Tripitaka or that Fish guy though).

    The guidebooks say that there has been a bit of a competition between Dali and Lijiang for tourists, and that Lijiang is winning, and we could see why. Lijiang simply looks more authentic, with a ...

    ... really very attractive and alluring about it too. So far we can't help but be charmed by the place.

    We dumped our bags at the hostel and headed straight out to make the most of the little daylight left. Walked around the quaint preserved cobbled streets for a while. It's nice to see that some of the streets and original archictecture here have actually been preserved, as so much of China has been knocked down and rebuilt. Enjoyed just ...
