Wow, as usual, stunning photos!


The heads of many statues were destroyed by Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution.

You will see this often in places like Nanjing and Xi an.

It was calamitous tragedy to China's cultural antiquity heritage.


I do believe this is my favorite post from your trip thus far. The carvings are absolutely amazing. Do you know how old they are?


lots to see and eat as usual!


Hi Liver - I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. The photos in the cave were very hard to take, but thankfully, a few turned out ok.

Hi Names - We've encountered the same thing in Cambodia/Laos/Vietnam..... unfortunately, China is not alone in that aspect.

Hi Jo - They date back to the 10th century - the beginning of the Song Dynasty.

Thanks Kat!

Wow, i wish my local mall would sell food like that - we just have burgers and pizzas and some miserable looking 'chinese' food, full of MSG.


incredible carvings in the cave. I love that they made use of all the stone available to them.


Hi Ali - Nothing beats the food courts in Asia!

Hi Lynnea - We enjoyed Fei Lai Feng the most while in Hangzhou.
