  • The River Towns of Kunshan

    The city of Kushan, nestled between Shanghai and Suzhou, is oft overlooked by its larger neighbours.

  • Dunhuang, City of a Thousand Buddhas

    Boulders scattered across the track make life difficult for the saloon car we’re riding in through the Sanwei Mountain Scenic Area. The road is uneven and stony. Eventually we have to abandoned the air-conditioned vehicle and go out on foot, walking in the arid desert heat beneath cloudless, deep blue skies. There is little shade and no other people in sight. The silence is unnerving. Our march through rocky ravines and narrow passes recalls the journey of the droids through on planet Tatoonie in the original Star Wars film. Our only company is limited to some flightless birds foraging for who knows what, for there is little life here bar a few hardy desert plants sucking-up water from deep underground

  • Jingdezhen, Porcelain Capital

    The streets are cracked and dusty. The hum of churning machinery emanates from every other building. Coolies push bamboo carts stacked heavy with sacks of clay, blue and white Ming vases or Buddha effigies down crowded alleyways.
