Chinese Aesthetics

Everytime I travel I get so inspired but this trip to China has definitely left a great impact on me. In this post you’ll find some of my favorite photos I took during my visit to Yinchuan. The photo above was taken at the west studio of Zhenbeibao which is like the Chinese universal studios where movies are being shot, more photos below!

The most beautiful lavender field in China

Visiting China was such an amazing experience. I’ve seen many places within the province of Yinchuan but this experience was so amazing. I got to visit a huge flower garden called: Jinshadao Resort and they have this giant lavender field. I was expecting it to be busy and overcrowded but since it’s such a huge area, the crowd isn’t very noticeable. The lavender flowers only blossom once a year and I’m glad I got to see it 🙂 Click here to see my previous post of China where I explored the Islamic area including some portrait shots of the locals.

Exploring a Muslim village in China

Last month I had the opportunity to visit China and explore some of the most beautiful places within the province of Yinchuan. One of the activities on our itinerary was to explore the Muslim area of China and in this case in the province Yinchuan. Even though the Hui Muslims in China are in the minority, they’re very present in Ningxia which is the city that we visited. We were invited by a Hui Muslim family to their home and we got to experience their way of living. The woman of the house and her sister made us traditional snacks and we had delicious Ba Bao tea. This traditional tea consists many fresh herbs, spices and even goji berries!
