Living and working day after day and year after year, are you suffering from the visual fatigue of looking at the world surrounding you? If your eyes are tired, then your heart is easy to be tired too. But thanks to winter, snowfall makes a better and more lively world.

Forbidden City after snowfall is no longer a tourist attraction, instead it is the Forbidden City back to the old times in winter. It doesn’t need the hordes of tourists; it only wants to silently hug the painted Chinese Red in the long historical river peppered with flying snow.

West Lake in Hangzhou looks like the fair lady at her best. Whether she is richly adorned or plainly dressed. Snowfall envelops her lightly, making her more attractive.

Zhangjiajie seems awaking from  a winter snow dream, returning to the otherworldly paradise with few people.

No more holiday crowds, only the plain silver attire; mountain paths blocked and no prints on the snow.

Coated by white snow, Nanjing again becomes Jinling, an ancient city going through 6 dynasties. In the course of the city’s reconstruction, Nanjing has changed greatly.

Maybe only snowing can produce some old fragrance at the former busiest place of Nanjing Fuzimiao ( Nanjing Confucius Temple ).

Sichuan Province, as its famous Sichuan food, is favored as one of the most resourceful tourist destinations in China. The snow shrouded Mt.Emei looks fantastic.

In today’s restless world with social or moral decline, often people are hard to have peaceful souls. Then come to Mt.Emei blanketed by white snow and snow rimes, talking with Buddha in pure hearts. If you are settled down with peaceful souls, you will have your answers.

Xian ( the site of Terracotta Warriors ) is on longer the ancient city of Chang’an ( the capital of Tang Dynasty ), though it is now an important tourist destination in China.

Like other historical places, Xian’s beauty doesn’t fall on the tourist season packed with tourists, but on the cold and snowy winter.

If you feel cities are too small to hold your heart, come and look at the snowy Dunhuang, walking on the white desert and leaving all your worries behind.

Some places in China become more Chinese after snowfall. But some places always look authentically Chinese such as Tibet, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia – these high altitude border areas.

But snowfall makes them even more stunningly beautiful.

Travel China in July and August

"People Mountain, People Sea" taken by my Nokia mobile at Beijing Railway Station on July 16, 2010

Every later July is the beginning time for students summer vacation here in Beijing and other parts of China. The summer semester lasts about 45 days. September 1 is usually the beginning day for a new semester.
 
In China, July and August are the small tourist peak season mainly due to the student summer vacation though the weather is not so comfortable. Some parents make use of the vacation traveling domestically or abroad with their only offsprings. Others send their kids taking part in various kinds of summer camps to have their only childs trained in the aspects concerned. So the two traveling volumes keep all the flights, trains and buses busy, making regular travel both domestic and international around China much tougher in terms of hotel and ticket booking, not mentioning the crowded sightseeing spots everywhere.
 
This afternoon I went to Beijing Railway Station to meet one of my former co-workers in Hangzhou surnamed Fang, and give his family a transfer from the station to their hotel in Beijing – Sunworld Hotel.
 
Standing at the exit of the station, I found a huge crowd of passengers coming in and out. One Chinese proverb can describe the scene – “People Mountain, People Sea”.
 
If you come to China in July and August, please well plan your travel schedule and pre-book your tickets if necessary.
 
From every September first on when students back to schools, it is the best time traveling Beijing and other parts of China with its amiable
weather. Of couse, all the travel suppliers will raise their prices during the peak tourist season of the year.
