Riding around Yulong River

South of Guilin, in China, you can find the biggest karst formation of the world. The erosion has created unique mountians that are cut by different rivers: Li River, the biggest, is the main way to reach Yangshuo by a cruise boat. Yangshuo is a touristic capital in the middle of the karst formation. Although many tourists pay for an hotel in the town, we decided to stay in a small hotel in the countryside, close to Yangshuo but far enough to have a quiet and pleasant stay. The Moondance Hotel was next to Yulong river, the most beautiful river we have ever seen.

The Ebre Delta

In less than 2 hours driving from Barcelona, you can reach one of the most important wetlands in south of Europe: the Ebre delta. You don’t need to travel to Vietnam to see incredible rice fields under a sunset, or a fisherman throwing the net for fishing while thousands of flamingos start flying. You don’t need to go to Thailand to sleep in a wooden roof house surrounded by palm trees in front of a virgin beach. You have all of this in one single place in Europe. The Ebre Delta in Catalonia is still being discovered by travellers from all around the world and it is one of the best places to eat paella and seafood!
