My husband and I have been a regular visitor to China since 1996. However this Yunnan trip is the second time we used the service provided by China Discovery. We continued to use CD service because it was professional. Since we were not in a group tour Wing, the trip coordinator managed to get it done according to our request. Lijiang is a lovely town. Although the old town has unavoidably turned into a commercialized place, the transformation was done quite orderly. Shanxi village and Shibaoshan Grottoes are full of cultural and Buddhist history. We could learn a lot thanks to tour guide Jack. At the First Bend of Yangtze River, the place where we stood to see the Yangtze River was not high enough we could not have a panoramic view of the 180 degree bend of the river but it was still interesting to see. The highlight of the trip is probably the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The amount of water was unbelievable. A visit to Songzanlin Monastery makes us understand how Tibetan monks and villagers coexist, thanks to clear explanation by Sarah, our tour guide in Shangri-la. Since we have been to many national parks, Pudacuo National Park is not that spectacular. Perhaps we were there not at the right time.
