      The footprint of the gods

      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 …

      Dali - cafés, clothes and cakes

      Hello from a beautifully sunny and fairly warm Dali! I've definitely adapted to the slow pace of life in this province and no day is complete without a few stops at various cafés - going back to the city is going to be a shock! Haha This part of the trip all began with a fairly uncomfortable train journey. For reasons only known to those in control, a 2 hour journey warrants beds, not seats. However, lying down on said beds is seemingly forbidden so 8 of us ...

      Seeking Rural China in Shaxi

      ... with what looks like fresh cement. Numerous houses in town, known for their quaint, classic architecture, also look recently painted. All of this jives with what we've been told: Shaxi is being readied for a tourist boom! So many of China's workers, choking in polluted cities, long for a vacation in the countryside, the logic goes. Shaxi will be a prized destination. (I know we loved ...

A few intrepid tourists have cycled north to Shaxi for the market then continued on to Wase finally catching the ferry back across the lake, some 75km later. Having passed up my plans 2 days running due to heavy rain on the morning, by the 3rd day I was getting a little bored of wandering the same streets alone, ...

From there we hiked to Seven Dragon Pool and then on to Cangshan Grand Canyon. We were pretty much the only people on the trail aside from some locals and ...
