We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Anhui Tour

Anhui Map china_travel_guide anhui
Abutting Jiangsu to the east, Zhejiang to the southeast, Jiangxi to the south, Anhui is a low-profile province in the east region of China with Hefei as its capital city. The Yangtze River and Huai River cross Anhui Province from the west to the east, geographically bisecting the province into two parts - the northern Anhui ( north of Yangtze River ) and the southern Anhui (south of Yangtze ). Topographically the northern Anhui is part of the North China Plain and part of the Huai River Watershed as well, both flat and densely populated while the southern Anhui features rugged hills and ranges winding through the southeastern Anhui.

Anhui's main cultural and historical sights are all scattered in the south and southeast regions, represented by the Huizhou-type villages, white-washed walls and back-tiled roofs, and the mountainscapes of Huangshan. 150 km southwest of Huangshan, Jiuhushan is noted for its unworldliness and tranquility. Anhui's green mountains and the bucolic life in the countrysides are a great escape from the hustle and bustle of China's bigger cities.

Top Attractions in Anhui
1) Mount Huangshan 黄山
Mt. Mountain is world famous for its beautiful landscape – sunrise, sunset, granite peaks, pine trees, and the other-worldly sea of the clouds. Also much of Mt. Huangshan's reputation comes from its significant impact on Chinese art, literature and profound cultural resources.
