I always look forward to going on exotic vacations, sometimes the same old gets boring. Usually, people who go on vacation go back to the same place. Of course, there are just some destination worth going back to, but there are so many other destinations calling to be explored.
I’m excited, as I’m ready packing my bags and heading for Sichuan China. I bought my luggage at Bed Bath & Beyond and did some light shopping to prepare myself for the excursion. I will be touring in different areas of the Province, and I’m ready to see the sites with my camera.
Leaving the US, I will embark on beautiful landscapes and great culture. Sinchuan is a big place, so there are lots to see. The first stop is the beautiful national park of Jiuzhaigou. It’s in the northern part of Sichuan, a wonderful place to start our journey. When traveling through the park, my camera coundn’t capture all of the beauty that was around me. Our tour guide let us know of the rich history–to think they were logging in this area. Now, it is a government protected park and its wonders can be seen by all.
After a tranquil day in the park, sometimes it’s nice to see what the city has to offer. I spent a day on a very long street. This was where I got most of my souvenirs from the trip. The place was called Jinli and I stayed the whole day there. There was so much to look at and at night it was a beauitiful site with all the lights.
Our next stop will be in western China. Here, there will be a historic journey into the past. Zigong Salt History Museum is a popular stop for tourists like me. It was built in 1736, and is located in the Guild Hall which took 16 years to build. It was a very expensive project, but was well worth it because the architecture is marvelous. The amazing structure represents the wealth of the salt merchants at that time.
There are so many wonderful places to visit in Sichuan, and these are only a few things it has to offer. The next time you want a real adventure with beautiful views travel Sichuan.
