August in China: Amazing Views of Guizhou

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape

Guizhou is one of the poorest and most undeveloped provinces in China. It is a mountainous inland area populated by minority groups. Its underdevelopment is mainly due to the difficult transport lines. Good roads are only now being constructed and there are very few major highways passing through the province. What makes development difficult makes the scenery uncommonly beautiful. Throughout the winding journey, we got used to the lovely views of the many shades of green, from the pine trees to the rice paddies.

Each turn gave us another great view. Why bother with TV and National Geographic when you can look out at this all afternoon?

I envied the villagers their houses with the amazing views. It looked almost Swiss alpine and was all incredibly idyllic.

Soon we spied a dark patch in the valley below. This had to be the biggest town in the area, Zhaoxing.

After an unexpectedly long journey that was half the distance we’d last travelled yet took twice the time of our last journey, we finally arrived at the last Dong village on our itinerary.
