A trip in pictorial : Part 1 ....

Oh, I mentioned this will be a pictorial post of my recent holiday to the Jiangnam area of China which sums up my trip. There will be lesser words in this blog for these pixs which were stored in my phone.  These pixs were taken on the fly while I am on the moving coach or just walking around but too lazy to snap with the camera. :)

1. A side view of the West Lake in Hangzhou. Till now, I am still fascinated by the beautiful scenery there.

2. Spotted a red leaves tree near West Lake. How I wished I could see more colorful tree leaves. (Next trip...)

3. A clean empty street around Hangzhou. I spotted a row of yellow/brown beautiful trees and they are dropping leaves too. I find this picture gave me a very relax feeling.

4. One of a villages in Hangzhou. I guess this is an old village.

4. Another view of a village that I passed by. I somehow like to see others' peoples lives in other countries. Just like us, when we are back home, struggling to meet ends needs.

5. The bustling but clean city of Hangzhou. I am impressed with the developments and nice cars over there. The buildings are huge !

6. Finally witnessing a young girl on bikes ... I used to think there are a lot of bicycles there, maybe in the past.

7. A path in between two shopping malls in Yiwu. It was so clean and somehow I like the walking pavement. It looks ancient. 

8. A bustling evening in Suzhou, where there was a mixed of old and new buildings,
 
9. Nice scenery of the Venice of the east which is Suzhou. Canals are everywhere here!!

10. Another night scenery of the lovely Suzhou.

11. You may be wondering what is this ... or was it a shopping mall ? No, it's actually a R&R at the highway, where the coach stop by for us to relieve ourselves as well as get some snacks. It was a massive R&R and there are a few of them at the long highways.  It was cold....getting down there! 

12. I can't forget the memorable Dong Po meat in Bamboo casing ... yummy ... 
That's all for Part 1! Weekend is near, have a good one! :)

  1. I spent all day walking around Suzhou's ancient streets and canals before taking short nap inside their Starbucks which had the ancient decor as well. Thanks for sharing the modern buildings in the city which I didn't explore. We took the bullet train from Shanghai for the day trip and it was worth every minute there.

    I also like to see all the red and yellow trees of the Fall seasons. It gives me that sentimental feelings about the cycle of lives and trees getting ready for the next seasons. It taught me to get ready always to embrace tomorrow.

    Okay thanks for sharing the photos. I am waiting for you to dig out more! Lol

  10. #1.. can definitely see that you still could not withdraw yourself from your Hangzhou trip, hahaha!!! the West Lake must have taken your soul into the water, haha~~ :p

    #2.. oh, very nice color of the red leaves!! hmmm, i guess you will need to go there at the right timing to be able to see a mixture of colors of the trees??

    #3.. eih, now you see it.. the trees along the road comes in a mixture of green, yellow and red leaves!! even your post background is also autumn leaves now, hehe~~

    #4.. when i first saw this photo, i thought something has fallen down and crushed onto the cars, hahaha!!

    1. hahaha... actually , I miss the carefree holidays and with scenery like the West Lake, it feels so good to be there, compared to the pressure cooker life now. Yes, I was lucky to catch a few colourful leaves trees but I hope I can see various colors in a jungle of trees or something.

      I also thought so but it's actually a branch.

  11. #4.. it's #4 again, you have labelled two #4 dei, hehehe!! okay, this is for the second one.. would be even nicer if you were being invited to go into their houses huh??

    #5.. i think cars are cheaper there than in the Bolehland hor??

    #6.. probably you will be able to see more cycling in Beijing.. so your next trip will be Beijing?? it's a nice place with lots of historical heritage to see and experience.. :)

    #7.. they have lots of walkways just for pedestrians in the shopping areas, now cars allowed and hence way less pollution, i really like this thought..

    #8.. such a big contrast huh?? over here in Bolehland, all the old buildings gotta be demolished to give way to the new modern ones.. sigh!!

    1. Alamak.... blur already, I number the same.
      Cannot anyhow go into people's house la...hahahaha... Well, not sure if the cars are cheaper there but surely, there's a lot of nice cars there that I seen.
      Yes, I hope to visit Beijing in these few years and see more sweet young thing in bicycles.
      Oh yeah , they have a lot of walkways for pedestrians which is great. It's everywhere there!
      Sigh...what to do...bolehland wants to cash in ...

  12. #9.. this doesn't look quite like Venice to me, hahahaha.. instead from this angle it looks like Otaru in Japan to me, hehe~~ :p

    #10.. i always like cities with water (lake, river or sea).. besides good fengshui, i think the water gives a balance to the scenery and adds charm to the city..

    #11.. oh, impressive R&R.. i guess this size is really needed considering China's massive population..

    #12.. hehehehe, one little portion of the Dong Po Rou and how many kilometers you need to run to shed the calories off?? :p

    1. LOL...still, Suzhou is the Venice of the east. Perhaps, this pix didn't do much justice to it. There are so many canals there and I hope I can spent longer time at each destinations.
      I am sure you love Putrajaya then...ask Mak Glam to bring you run around there! muahahaha...

      Yes, I am impressed with their R&R though I gotta be careful of the 'spits' onto the floor...hahahha... They even gave free hot water and like our R&R, there are eateries and shops for drivers to wind down.

      Oh no... just eat first then worry....muahahahaha..
