Qinghai - Tibet train trip

CHINA | Wednesday, 17 Mar 2010 | Views [960]

Back on the trains again, this time across the Qinghai Plateau and in to Tibet. The Chinese are very proud of this rail line - as they are of most things they get right - but it is certainly a interesting trip. There are commentaries along the way letting ... Read more >

Last winter was my first northern hemisphere winter, and come Xmas holidays last year, the last direction I was going to head was further north(I went south to Sanya on Hainan island instead). This year I thought I had better go while I am still so close.... Read more >

CHINA | Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | Views [1107] | Comments [1]

In the last few weeks work has taken me in to Inner Mongolia Province and out to the Tibetan / Qinghai plateau. The coal mine we work with in Zhunge'er is only a three to thirty three hour drive - depending on snow, ice, trucks, bicycles, potholes and ... Read more >

CHINA | Tuesday, 20 May 2008 | Views [18993] | Comments [4]

After a three hour trip through some fairly scenic country over a heap of rivers and through a heap more tunnels, (this is why the people in Sichuan couldn't get in or out - same road system) I ended up in Tuxin then got the shuttle up to Tangkou. A ... Read more >

CHINA | Sunday, 18 May 2008 | Views [1021]

Straight after work on Saturday it was home, throw some clothes in the pack, then taxi to the train station. That's where you sit in the corner and get stared at, or mother's drag their kids over to practice both sentences they know in english. It doesn't ... Read more >

Psst. Wanna buy a Rolex?

CHINA | Monday, 29 Oct 2007 | Views [1147] | Comments [1]

Pack a healthy sense of humour Avoid air travel in October. The fog will cause you grief a lot of the time. It's a good time to go check out the Great Wall though. Trains are a safe, efficient and comfortable way to go (if you get a soft sleeper). ... Read more >
