Hello! Come join me for a live update. I am 'solo traveling' in China. Well, kind of. I traveled to China alone, which technically is 'solo travel' but, I have been hanging out with the same person for months, and it certainly doesn't feel like solo traveling anymore haha. I am definitely traveling differently than I have in previous countries!

We stayed at: Kevin's Trekker Inn, Shangri-La, China
Good place, sweet and friendly, great value for your money.
(affiliate link)

Our hike to the Yakfields around Shangri-La and our Tibetan Homestay we arranged with: Khampa Caravan.
Loved it! The hike is definitely lonely and unique, though the village was not as spectaculair as we'd hoped.

And for those who wonder: Till early 2000's this town was called Zongdian, but the government thought it would attrack more tourists if they would rename the place Shangri-La. After the novel of James Hilton. Where Shangri-La is described as a mystical paradise on earth....
In 2014 the old city got fire and hundreds of houses were destroyed. Though rebuilding goes fast!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF CHINA STARTING IN YANGSHUO! | Backpacking China Vlog 1

This is my first time in China and I’m visiting with The Dragon Trip on their 25 Day China Loop Backpacking Tour from Hong Kong to Hong Kong.

We started our China tour in Hong Kong by meeting the group and heading up to Victoria Peak for a view of the City before heading straight for the China Border and getting on a bullet train from Shenzhen to Guilin and then getting a bus to Yangshuo.

The town of Yangshuo nestled between limestone mountains was a complete surprise! It’s full of gift shops and crazy bars, it’s loud with a lot going on.. not what I expected from China!

There are lots of things to do in Yangshuo and lots of activities on offer, we did a cooking class which was great but I got very emotional during the market visit before the class where we visited the live animal market!

We also went on a bike ride in Yangshuo, on a bamboo raft down the Li River and to a cave with mud baths and hot springs which was really cool and great fun!

We climbed up to the top of the TV Tower in Yangshuo which was hard and sweaty due to tge humidity but rewarding. Lastly we went to the nearby tourist and historic town of Xingping, there’s a point here on the Li River which is the photo on the 20 Yuan note!

I had a few ups and downs, mainly around the animal and market situation in Yangshuo but overall I thought Yangshuo was really beautiful and such a fun place. Yangshuo is definitely a good place to visit in China first especially if you're backpacking China and it was a great start to my China Tour with The Dragon Trip!

Tagong, Kham region, Sichuan Province, China | Horse Riding Travel Video 2016 | TravelGretl Full HD

This week we travel to Tagong (塔公). It's also known as Lhagang (ལྷ་སྒང་), a small town in Garzê, southwestern China. The historical Kham region of Tibet. We're going for horseback riding on the grasslands! But oh my, before we even get there.... ;)

What we did:
Horseback riding! After walking the village, this is the best thing to do by far. You can go for trekkings for as long as you wish. Though I'd suggest you start with a day, if you're not an experienced horserider, just like me ;) Your butt will hurt at the end of the day!

We stayed at Khampa Cafe and Himalayak. Both good places, though honestly Khampa Cafe has a bit better atmosphere. It used to be from Angela and her husband, but they sold the place to a new owner (friendly man) and started something new out of town.

That's the place we stayed in during our horseride tour. They were building it summer of 2016 - but I really am sure it will be so beautiful! The bed was great, and loved all the wood.

My China Travel Tips after 47 Days of Traveling China // This is China

After an entire summer of traveling China, I want to give you my travel tips, suggestions, and warnings about traveling the country. This is what you need to know about travelling in China. How much things cost. How to get around. How you can travel off the beaten path. I find China a difficult country to travel. The language barrier has a greater impact than most other destinations. In this video, I discuss hotels, food, and transportation - including what to expect and how you can make your trip go smoothly.

Have you traveled China? Did you like it? Did you find it more difficult than other countries?

To and see: Walk up the hill to the monastery. There are two really big ones in town.
The birthplace of the 7th Dalai Lama.
Talk with the locals!

China and the revival of Taoism

What is Taoism and why did it have a revival in China in the last 30 years? Is Taoism a religion how we know it and how are people in China living Taoism? And speaking of Taoism, what do people mean with the term Tao? Is Taoism and Tao a philosophy or how do we have to understand it as outsiders?

In the fourth episode, Ruben Terlou travels to the mountains and learns more about Taoism.

In the mountain area where the Tao originated are still monks who are looking for the truth and enlightenment. There is a part of China that is hard to understand for our Photographer. When people in China speak of immortality, harmony and the ultimate effortlessness. Some Chinese go into the mountains alone. Others train in kung fu temples for years or sit under a rock. If you study the Tao, your spirit will live forever, they say. But what do they found under a rock and what made them study the Tao?

Ruben Terlou travels to the area where the main Chinese religions originated, including Taoism. There he is trying to find out the value of Tao for young people and meets an old hermit who has been living in a cave for decades. Mao´s Cultural Revolution wiped nearly out all religion, that was 50 or 60 years ago. But over the last 30 years, Taoism has seen a remarkable revival. A fact, that can be seen on the mountain where Master Lao, a giant gold statue of a bearded man, has been placed. Laotze or Master Lao wrote the main book about the Tao, the book “the Tao Te Ching”.

Photographer Terlou tries to understand what Taoism is by doing it. In the Wudang mountains, where the cradle of Taoist martial arts lies, he visits a modern kung fu temple. Surprisingly the center is mainly focused on Western students. The kung fu master demonstrates an ancient Taoist kung fu style that students have to learn it by seeing it once.

Chinese Street Food INSANE BBQ Tour in Sichuan, China - SZECHUAN SAUCE BBQ Lamb + Sichuan BBQ Rabbit

Check out for 3 months free w/ 1 year pack and 49% OFF! INSANE Chinese Street Food BBQ Tour in Sichuan, China! We found the ORIGINAL SZECHUAN SAUCE, the true chili oil! In this Chinese street food BBQ tour, we're visiting 3 delicious Chinese BBQ restaurants in Chengdu, China, trying out a WHOLE Roast Lamb, some amazing Chinese Sichuan BBQ Rabbit, and some amazing BBQ Sichuan Lamb Kebabs!



►Make sure to Subscribe to The Food Ranger here:
►And subscribe to my buddy Austin Guidry here:

In this Chinese Street Food BBQ Tour, we're exploring the DEEP back restaurants of Chengdu, China and taking you to experience the AMAZING Szechuan Barbecue restaurants and the sauce and spice that is slathered onto everything you eat here.

If you love spicy Barbeque, you're going to love this video, cause first up, we're going to enjoy a whole bbq lamb, Sichuan style. This bbq lamb is approximately 60-90 days old and is quite enough for 2 - 4 people to eat entirely. It was covered in a thick chili sauce aka SZECHUAN Sauce and tons of chili, salt, cumin, and sichuan peppercorn. The flavour was out of this world! One of the best BBQ lamb you can eat anywhere around the world! The bbq ribs were a little small I must admit, but the rest of the meat was delicious. Watching the rotating meat was so much fun. Much different from your regular grilling meat restaurant.

We watched the whole process of cooking the baby lamb. First, it was put to bbq over the coals. After about 30 minutes, they rubbed a spicy chili oil all over it to change the colour darker red. After that, they took it off briefly and covered it in a Sichuan sesame oil. This was the first coat. After roasting on the BBQ coals for another hour or so, it was taken off and covered in a THICK Sichuan chili oil. This is where a lot of the fragrance and spice comes from. The true SZECHUAN SAUCE! It was covered in a spicy cumin chili combo and then served!

We finished the whole lamb, and then the next day, I continued alone on the Chinese street food BBQ tour. I found a famous joint in Chengdu serving a chengdu traditional food, Sichuan spicy rabbit. Here, 60 day old rabbits are slathered in a spicy chili oil and a similar spice mix, except they are pulled apart with pliers and also covered in a lot of ground peanuts and MSG. Whether you can accept MSG is up to you, but here on the streets, it's used almost everywhere, and I am fine with that.

After that amazing Sichuan BBQ rabbit, I tried another specialty of Chengdu from the same Chinese street food restaurant, Sichuan rabbit head. Actually it was a very similar flavour, just slightly less cumin scented and spicy. Not bad.

To finish up the BBQ tour, I went to a local Muslim Chinese halal food restaurant serving Halal Chinese BBQ Kebabs. Here, the kebabs were covered in a ton of cumin and chili and Sichuan peppercorn and also served with the kaobing, bbq flatbread also covered in a similar spice mix. It was an amazing combo!
