It’s Christmas time, we would love to give every person reading this a present, but as we are poor, it will have to be a virtual one: Lots of pictures and hardly any writing, perfect for when your a bit merry!

HonKong Sky Line Victoria Peak

View from Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Guilin Bridge

These bridges were everywhere in China

chinese boy dancing at the parade

Stumbled on a serious parade…. but a kid just wanted to rock out

Entrance to the forbidden city

Crowds at the Forbidden City

Archway towards tinannmen square

Our favourite part of Beijing

great wall of China

We loved this day at the Great wall, although some parts were pretty steep!

slogan purses, Hangzhou China

We found these purses whilst shopping in Hangzhou – they entertained us for a good 20 mins!

View of Xiamen

We had a great day exploring a little island off the coast of Xiamen

Sunset in Hangzhou

Best sunset so far- Hangzhou China

Merry Christmas!

There were so many more good ens as well, we should have bought them all! Chinglish!

Brilliant pictures. It is so hard to pick my favourite as they are all good but I would choose the bridge and sunset.

Thanks Natalie – Glad you enjoyed.

That kid is my fucking favourite. A rebel in the making… when this kid wants to rock it, he rocks it.

He is indeed, the adults just looked on nervously…

We had so much fun looking through them all – I reckon they used google translate and that Chinese people never wear underwear?!?!

The photo of the bench and the skyline is my favorite, though they’re all pretty fabulous!

Thanks Andi!


Sarah Wu December 26, 2010 at 2:33 pm

Great pictures. love the purse one on the bottom. The one on the right that says knowledge is like pant. they miss a word “under” hehehe. It should be under pant.


Poi December 26, 2010 at 9:56 pm

I’m gutted we didn’t by all of them!


Erica December 26, 2010 at 4:31 pm

EEE! The sunset one is totally my favorite!

It was amazing there, looked that good every night!


Connie December 26, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Amazing photos! I just spent a month in China and had the worst luck with the weather! It was too cold and rainy to do much and I’m afraid my time in China was spent trying to stave off frostbite. The sunset in Hangzhuo looks AMAZING!


Poi December 26, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Sorry to hear that – hope you got a chance to enjoy some of it.

I know you don’t want to here this but we had amazing weather there, didn’t expect China to be so hot.


Ayngelina December 26, 2010 at 9:17 pm

My favourite is the Great Wall, really want to go and see it.

Did you see Idiot Abroad on China yet? Hilarious.

The great wall is amazing – well worth the effort to go to a more remote section.

I’ve seen the highlights but my friend who’s coming to visit is bringing the whole series – everyone seems to love that show.


Amanda December 27, 2010 at 5:21 am

Loved this post, guys! I hope you had a great Christmas in Thailand!

The bridge photo and the Great Wall are awesome! But the Chinglish purses are hilarious.

We sent one back home for my sister, I think she would have had them all though….

The translation on the purses are horrible. I’ll correct the one about the invisible pants:

“Knowledge is like underwear. You can’t see it, but it’s very important.”


Poi January 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Thanks for that Bob


Angela June 15, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Beautiful shots, I’m so going to miss China when I will leave..
