China Trip 2017

 

My childhood was filled with all kinds of Chinese movies from Princess Pearl, the Kangxi Emperor and his legends to the Monkey King. Since then, I always wanted to visit the Forbidden City in Beijing. Now as an adult, Chinese cuisine would be far more interesting for me and less popular places. 

On a day in fall, we spontaneously decided for a trip to China when we found a great one-way fare from Vienna to Chongqing that was EUR 340 per person. Our first stop in China was Chongqing followed by multiple stops in province Yunnan and Hainan. Later we flew to Abu Dhabi with an overnight in Narita and then continued to Beirut before heading back to Vienna. For me, this trip was a memorable experience in my life.
