Travel Report: Xu Ao Di Village – Taishun County, China.

November 2017. My visit to Taishun County was a major highlight of my travels across southern China. I saw an array of ancient bridges, an abandoned temple, a stunning reservoir and an equally awesome three-tiered waterfall set in a remote forest-mountain park.

Travel Report: Nanpuxi Scenic Park – Taishun County, China.

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

November 2017. “Where are we going next?” I asked Amy, more than a little intrigued by the Magical Mystery Tour tone of the day. “Bao Ancestral Hall” she replied, 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 […]

Travel Report: Nanyang Bridge – Taishun County, China.

November 2017. It had been an amazing couple of days driving around the remote rural villages and country roads of Taishun County. Our main activity that trip had been bridge hunting and we’d already tracked down Beijian Bridge and Xi Dong Bridge, two of the region’s most popular bridges in Sixi Town. Apparently most people […]

Travel Report: Beijian Bridge – Taishun County, China.

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. November 2017. Perched eleven meters above water level, Beijian […]
