Dramatic contrasts in scenery from sub-tropical jungle to snow-covered mountain peaks of Tibet’s foothills and traditional festivals in isolated valleys with China’s minority nationalities are the delights of this series.

XISHUANGBANNA – is in a long isolated area near the Burma and Laos borders. It features Dai minority people with a written language similar to Thai. The April Water Splshing Festival celebrates their traditional New Year

DALI – is beautifully located between Erhai Lake and snow covered peaks of the Cangshan Mountains. The area became part of China when conquered by Kublai Khan in 1253 A.D. Historically it was a customs post on the southern route to Burma and India and was one of the places in China visited by Marco Polo!

LIJIANG – a UNESCO World Heritage site, is set in the foothills of Tibet. It is home to the Naxi people and its Dongba culture is one of the oldest in Asia with a totally unique written language. Much of the Nexi music and song is still performed.
