I've finally sorted through about a thousand photos from my trip to China and I'm so excited to share my favorites! China is one of the most vibrant places I've ever been. From the landscapes and architecture, to the food and people, everything was different and I had a blast experiencing and photographing it!

Китаец поделился этим жутким фото на своей странице в соцсети. Он живет в Zhuhai Китай.
Хвастается тем, что разделывает собак на своей кухне для собачьего мяса.
Пора это остановить!

There's a new *suite* ride for @delta flyers. 👌 We tried out @delta's very first A330-900neo from Seattle to Shanghai, and while the suite isn't as sweet as its cousin on the A350, you won't be disappointed if you find yourself up front on this next-generation Delta bird. That said, if you've got big feet, you might have a hard time with these footwells. Link in bio for the full review. ✈️🇺🇸
Когда в 18-00 мы с мужем, как обычно, поужинали в гостинице, мы не подозревали, что наш вечер продолжится после 20-00 примерно по такому распорядку: 20-30 - салат из манго и авокадо, суп-минестроне, свиные ребрышки в карамельном соусе с пастой под соусом песто; 23-00 китайские устрицы, приготовленные на пару; 23-30 куриные крылышки; 00-00 раки в бамбуках; 01-00 - японский вечер - сашими, темпура, суши и прочие прелести японской кухни. В 2-35 я уже сообщаю вам об испытанном кулинарном шоке в самом хорошем смысле этого слова, а впереди, как обычно - чемоданы, дороги и новые города и знакомства! #акпутешествия#китай#гурмэтур#lifeisdelicious#chinatravel#chinagourmet#шаосин
Today’s destination: Huangshan (Yellow Mountains) in the Anhui Province of East China. This dream-like mountain landscape is one of China’s most iconic scenic spots. The magical, mist-shrouded vistas are a recurring motif in Chinese art.
Sometimes I can spend hour thinking about a shot, how I want to frame it, going through multiple different set ups and still not be super happy with the result......other times I can just happen to look out a cab window at the right time, waiting at a set of lights, onto a rainy Shanghai and the lights of the Oriental Pearl Tower and just happen to shoot this right before we move. Another reason I always try to have my camera with me, no matter what! .
The Temple of the Buddha and Maitreya Temple sitting atop Mt Fanjing
You may wonder why Fanjingshan has been listed in the world heritage site in 2018, as a nameless mountain for millenniums suddenly popped out from nowhere. The following storming compliments from National Geographic and other major travelling websites entitle Fanjingshan as "the top 3 best trip in 2019".
The mountain was named "Fanjing", an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means "Brahma's Pure Land". Whether Fanjingshan was Buddha's dwelling place or not, it is a real pure land to 4,395 species of plants and 2,767 of animals, including many of the endangered.
UNESCO recognizes Fanjingshan as a site considered to have "outstanding universal value". Since 1978, the Fanjingshan national nature reserve has been established and ran for years, sheltering those wonderful creatures there.
Fanjingshan or Mount Fanjing has been a sacred and tranquil site for Buddhists since the Tang Dynasty (618AD-907AD), ranking just behind the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism.
It is believed by a number of Buddhism believers that Fanjingshan is a spot in which one can reach their spiritual enlightenment as Maitreya Buddha did.
During the Ming Dynasty (1368AD-1644AD), 48 Buddhist temples were built on the mountain, many of which have since been destroyed. For those still remained, they are significant sites for Buddhist worshippers around the world.
The influence of Buddhism reached Fanjingshan by the Tang dynasty (618AD-907AD). The local chronicles record the construction of some temples in the area and more temples were built in the Song and Yuan dynasties (960AD-1368AD).
Since Buddhism greatly prospered during the Ming and Qing dynasties in China (1368AD-1912AD), many other temples were constructed in the golden summit area of Fanjingshan.
After decades of Buddhism Renaissance after the damages, Fanjingshan Buddhist Cultural Park was opened in 2010. A Golden Hall that houses a five-meter-tall statue of the Maitreya Buddha was made of gold weighting 250 kilograms and thousands of gems.
