China Travel Blog

Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in China

Hello and welcome to our China travel blog. You will find all our China blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our China travel blog because you are considering a visit to North Asia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to China. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for China.

We have a bit of a love-hate relationship with China. It’s a country we know well having visited many times over the years, dating back to the early 1990s. We travelled there both as backpackers and on work-related trips. In fact, one of Mark’s claims to fame is that he once took Judith Chalmers up the Yangtze! However, we have found that, over the years, China has changed dramatically and it no longer has the same pull for us.

Our China blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
