In April, at the beginning of these 5 weeks we spent 10 days in super dense Hongkong and its islands. We then went further to the mega city Guangzhou, spent lazy days in the hilly landscape around Xingping, went hiking in the Longy rice terraces and felt like unicorns in Changsha. After paying a flying visit to Mao's hometown Shaoshan we were amazed by the bizarre rock formations in Zhiangjiajie. An 18 hour train ride later touristy Hangzhou did for a short stopover before we approached surprisingly easygoing Shanghai through the British style Thames Town.
