Mountains Of Guilin

One thing that fascinate me the most in Guilin is the mountains there come in all shape and sizes. There is even names given to every mountains. If you happen to see a weird shape looking mountain and it not been name yet speak out and that mountain is name after you. I get to know from our tour guild that photographers from around the world does come here often spend at least a year to capture the wounder full sight of the mountains.

Yeah it was rather nice to be in the countryside breath the fresh mountain air. For some of the place even it already morning you can still see the moon still shining.

Rice Dumpling or Bak Chang

With Duan Wu Festival is around the corner, most of us will be making rice meat dumplings or just buy from the local market.
Rice dumpling festival 端午节 falls on the fifth day of the fifth moon of the Chinese lunar calendar. This year fall on 28 May 200

Do you know there is a interesting story behind the dumplings. It commemorates the death of Qu Yuan 屈原, a poet from the kingdom of Chu who lived during the Warring States period. Qu Yuan tried unsuccessfully to warn his emperor against the threat of their Qin neighbors. When the Qin Dynasty overtook Yingdu, the Chu capital, in 278 BC, the patriotic Qu Yuan drowned himself in the Miluo River. According to legend, bak chang (in Hokkien) or rice dumplings 粽子 were thrown by his countrymen into the river to prevent fish from eating the poet's body.

I couldn't upload most of the photos because it very blur but I do found a youtube video about the place.

The outside scenery is very nice.

It very hard taking photos inside the caves either you need be to very skill or use a better camera with better lighting. Oh... yeah inside the caves it very hot be sure not to wear extra clothes inside or you will sweat a lot.
