Arrow Hunan Province, China - Peasants, Tourists and Nature's Skyscrapers

A recent trip in May to Hunan Province in China. The weather was mostly gloomy and rainy. After several days of heavy rains, the rivers were swollen. Stuck on a tourist bus that was running around in circles, here are some photos of some of the less urban areas. As luck would have it, my SLR jams and fails to work for the remainder of the trip, forcing me to resort to a so-so point-and-shoot. You can find a thread with some Hunan Province cities here: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...31#post5786031

Phoenix Ancient City

Heavily commercialized for tourist, this ancient city is semi-preserved but at the same time ruined... it lacks a real / authentic feel to it. Capitalism and expoitation in a Communist country I guess.

Amazing images. Definitely makes me want to explore China. Not just the major cities, but the countryside and the mountains. Your photos of the wooden buildings in Phoenix Ancient city are fascinating. I'll have to see if I can get more info on that place. Too bad that it's become a sterile tourist city, but still looks captivating!
