3). What are the top 3 most breathtaking spots of this trip?
That’s of course completely subjective. Some will have such great appreciation for the cultural aspects of this trip, some fascinated by the people, others in awe of the magnificent beauty of the landscapes, etc.
For me personally, I love mountains around the world. And the Karst mountains from Guilin (Guanxi) through Guizhou are just incredible, especially those lining the Li River in Yangshuo.
