Beyond China’s Cities: Unspoiled Destinations

China always attracts a lot of tourists excited to see dramatic, mist cloaked peaks, serpentine Great Wall etc, but most of touristic sites can be busier than commuter train at peak time because of country’s huge population. Also it is well know fact that China continues to industrialise at an ever more dizzying rate, that’s why the pace and pollution often leaves travellers feel frustrated and confused.

However there are still many places that are, and most likely will always remain, the very embodiment of a traveler’s fantasy.

These images have been taken in picturesque locations like Dunhuang, an oasis on the edge of the Gobi Desert in the north west of the country. Others capture the lush green forests and flowing waterfalls at Jiuzhaigou, a protected national park in a remote area of south west China’s Sichuan province.

The landscapes are varied but they have one thing in common – they make you feel like you’re the only person who has discovered these breathtaking areas.
