Did the obligatory Lijiang River trip from Guilin to Yangshuo, indeed the landscape is unique and well worth a visit. Afterward we walked up 900 steps through the arch of Moon Hill.

Then yesterday we flew to Shanghai, where we stayed overnight at the Jin Jiang Hotel; the best hotel of the trip. Then we had a walk through the old town and the Yuyuan Garden. Today we have a few more things to visit before boarding the Costa Classica, our home for the next four weeks.

Internet connectivity onboard will be limited, but I’ll try to post weekly updates during this part of the trip. Stay tuned.
