Travel Report: Wenhong Bridge, Taishun County.

Wenhong Bridge Taishun County. November 2017. Not to be confused with its neighbor Wenchong Bridge, we happened across Wenhong Bridge whilst driving in search of Wenxing Bridge on the outskirts of Xiaochun Village. Confused?

Travel Report: Wenchong Bridge, Taishun County.

Wenchong Bridge Taishun County. November 2017. Apparently, there are around seven hundred covered wooden bridges scattered around Taishun County! Not all of them are as ancient or stunningly beautiful as Xi Dong Bridge or Beijian Bridge. Nor indeed my favourite Taishun County structure, Wenxing Bridge. Wenchong Bridge, for example, is a much more modest affair. Nevertheless, it caught my […]

Nanpuxi Scenic Park Taishun County. November 2017. I’d started getting just a little concerned that we weren’t ever going to reach Nanpuxi Scenic Park.

Travel Report: Nanpuxi Reservoir, Taishun County.

November 2017. “Whoa!” I exclaimed suddenly, as our little smart car turned a corner onto a narrow stone bridge. We’d been driving through the heart of Taishun County on the way to Nanpuxi Scenic Park when this majestic reservoir came into view.

Travel Report: Beijian Bridge, Taishun County.

Beijian Bridge Taishun County. November 2017. Located in Sixi Town, Beijian Bridge is one of Taishun County’s most picturesque spots. Initially camouflaged by a stupendous one thousand year old camphor tree, you’ll need to make your way to the start of the lake’s stepping-stones before the bridge fully reveals itself. Perched eleven meters above water […]

Travel Report: Bao Family Ancestral Hall, Taishun County.

November 2017. “Where are we going next?” I asked, more than a little intrigued by the Magical Mystery Tour feel of the day. “Bao Family Ancestral Hall” replied Amy, running her finger across the little map we’d picked up from the hotel. “IF I can find it”.  We’d just finished checking out the atmospheric Nanyang Bridge […]
