Social Media on Fire
I arrived in San Francisco on Monday where I met up with my good friend Lauren. After I’d settled into her cute, little guestroom, we sat down to catch up and talk about China and YouTube. It didn’t take us long to start discussing the news that had been spreading widely around social media the last few days. Western news outlets had stated that the Chinese government was going to shut down all VPN services by next year.
Shanghai is a modern, international city with skyscrapers, history and a lot of Chinese culture. Shanghai is a mix of China and the world and there is so much to see and do there.
I’ve now been studying my master’s in China for a few months already. This is not the first time I’m at a Chinese university so I feel like I have enough experience from different places and schools in China to share my experience with you guys.
Jinghong is the border town to South East Asia in Yunnan province of China. The city can be reached by long-distance sleeper bus from Kunming South Bus Station for around 250 RMB/person. The drive is during night time and you can sleep during the whole trip if you feel like it. It’ll take approximately 10 hours.
I was searching through the internet for more information on tourist attractions in Xishuangbanna. I found a post on the Cultural Minority Village but no exact information on how to get there which is why I’m now writing this post to make it easier for you guys. The minority park is located in a small village up in the mountains outside of Jinghong, so you have to go with the local bus from the bigger city of Jinghong. This is your guide and introduction to this beautiful park.
