When In China Part 1: Guangzhou & Beijing



I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to write this post, I took procrastination to another level with this one that I won’t even mention the month I went to China. It was this year though during the summer (I know not even this season – I’m terrible).This was my first time going to Asia. I visited Beijing for four days and Ghanzhou for three days with the family. I was thinking to do this post in a compare and contrast style of both cities I visited. However, I don't think I can do it justice as it was a very short trip, and I'm sure I saw a marginal fraction of what both cities had to offer. For that reason I would love to go again and to possibly visit other neighbouring cities.

I have a cousin who lives and studies in Wenzhou which is a two hour flight journey from Guangzhou, so it was great to see her. Ghanzhou is a three hour and twenty minute plane journey from China's capital Beijing. I want to say I enjoyed Guangzhou more than Bejing but I did more activities in Guangzhou than Bejing, well GZ definitely saw more of my Renminbi that is for sure! I guess that is the beauty of travelling somewhere where you know somebody who lives and speaks the local language. 

Here is a photo diary of my time in China, let me know your thoughts/ suggestion of where I should visit next time round. Enjoy!
