Lost & Found. 🌺 We wandered around in the LiJiang Old Town and didn’t know where we there going. But then we saw this beautiful corner outside a little lodge. Too bad it was closed on that day. We really wanted to see what’s inside like. Well, give me another excuse to go back and visit. 😉 #lijiang #china

Where the time stands still... 🕰 This is just one of the hundreds of little charming houses in LiJiang Old Town. Some are Bed and Breakfast, and the others are cafes, tea houses and rarely residential homes. They are mostly hidden behind their front door. You just have to be “noisy” to step into the yard to look around. Most of the hosts are very friendly and they don’t mind at all if you take a peek. 👀 But still, if you do see them, just say “Ni Hao” (hello) and “Kan Kan” (looking around), they will be happy to let you through. 🤗❤️ #lijiang #china

Sometimes, you don't need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it's fun. Because it makes you happy. That’s why I take photos of fresh fruits! ✌️😜🍎🍐🍊🍍

A picture is worth a thousand words. 🖼 So here are seven thousands words to show you how charming LiJiang Old Town is. I love how the water canals run along the two-storied, tile-roofed, and timber-framed houses and there are so many cafes, tea houses and restaurants by the water for people to chill out and enjoy the view. It is one of the best preserved ancient towns in China and one of my favorite places in the country. What do you think? 🤔 Swipe to see more. 👉

1. Incredible food 🥟🍜
2. Breathtaking landscapes ⛰
3. 5000 years of culture 🏮
4. The Great Wall 🏯
5. Super family-friendly👧👶🏽🧒🏼👦🏻
6. You need to see what all the fuss is about 🧐
7. Pandas 🐼
8. Budget and luxury friendly 💵💴💶💷
9. Fun shopping🛍
10. Why not?!🤷🏻‍♀️
So who is in? 🙋🏽‍♀️

I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s the great part: I don’t have to be. 🍵✌️👩🏻 Just watched the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” recently and absolutely loved it. Haven’t laughed so much in a movie for a while now. Have you seen it? What do you think? Who is your favorite character?

People say China is not just anther country, it is another world! Agree or disagree? 🤔Have you been there before? What do you think of it? The food, the language, the people? If not, what’s your assumption of China? I am so interested in hearing your thoughts. #throwback #yangshuo #guilin #china
