Another 3 days’ vacation, so that I have a chance to do a short trip : ) when time is near, I just randomly pick a place which is near Chengdu and have G train through to, thanks to high speed train, it become easier and convenient to go out 😀
On the first day, we took a morning train ( about 4 hours) from Chengdu East station to Guiyang North Railay Station. Wow, Guiyang North Railway Station is built well ( likely, all station buildings are grand and new) which was out my expiration.
When we arrived in Guiyang at noon, the weather was cool here and it was hard to think of the hot weather in Chengdu at the same time. We were planning to eat some food first. Out station and walk about 500m, there was an area on the left side called Dream City where there were many local restaurants and lots of local foodヾ(*´∀`*)ノ luckily, we had read some travel tips so no need to struggle to decide, ha~
After lunch, we took car to Qingyan Ancient Town. ( Guiyang is really a big city, we drove about 1 hour to the town. ) Here, you will CLIMB though lane of the town，so tired but fun. Expect merchandise stores, you can see these historic and cultural ancient buildings of Ming dynasty and you also can go back to stories of them.
On the second day, we took a bus to Huangguoshu Scenic Area. After two hours’ driving, we arrived and were so exciting to see the real thing, yeah~ we have heard it’s story since we were kids due to the TV Journey to the West which was filmed here ≧◇≦
Most famous parts in Huangguoshu Scenic Area are Huangguoshu Waterfall, Doupotang Waterfall and Tianxingqiao scenic spot. We took a day to visit, didn’t feel tired until we had seen them all.. haha..
On the third day, we departed from our hotel in Anshun to Dragon Palace Cave. No surprise to underground caves in China, but this one is magnificent, wow~ Besides, it is interesting to pass through by a boat.
After 3 days’ tour, we backed Chengdu. This tour was really exhausted, because we climbed mountains every day. However, throwing ourselves into nature to feel the force of life and the joy of living, this is super value!! ~^o^~
Not only has Huangguoshu Waterfall, Guizhou has various minority groups, especially the Miao and Dong. To appreciate the unique Karst landscapes, to experience the featured culture of various ethnic villages…You will be amazed by their traditional ways of living and working with the natural surroundings for centuries in your Guizhou Tours.
