Today we started off with a lovely one chance 8 o’clock start! We then spent the morning on a great cycle around yangshou and stopped for lunch... To get back from the restaurant we took a very scenic hour and a half raft ride which was very cool! Then we made our own dinner at a cookery school which was awesome! And finished off the day with the market and street again which is a very fun interesting place to be! 😁😁😁

After a very early start of 3:45 am we finally arrived in beautiful yangshou! And looked at the river from a great view point! Then we had our first western style meal because we were so tired... PIZZA! Now we’re off for a barter in the market and more food!

Had an action packed day today... we started at the Terracotta Army this morning which was unbelievable and had lunch there as well! Then we had a lovely bike ride around the city walls which was very hot but worth seeing! Finally we ended up at our dumpling banquet with all different dumpling in the shape of the meat followed by a show in the same place which was VERY entertaining! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜

And finally today we finish of with an over night bullet sleeper train! An interesting experience to remember!
Today (Wednesday) we visited tianenem square and the forbidden city... followed by an AMAZING duck lunch! Then we had a rickshaw ride along the hutongs! (A man cycling 2 of us along small thin roads) But one of the best bits was bartering at the markets! Which was awesome! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
