From the start of our trip we decided to skip Tibet for the time being. It takes time to get there, travelling permit is a hassle and the fact, that you have to go with an organised trip, also take quite a lot of money. However, it was very tempting to get close to it. The only possible way to do it without actually crossing the border to the “forbidden” province is a bus trip on a Sichuan-Tibet Highway. We opted for the southern route going via Kangding, Litang, Xiangcheng and Shangri-la. This trip took 4-5 days and was a perfect way to get the taste of the Tibetan culture.

So far we have not written too much about local food in the countries we were visiting. We were trying to keep you up to date with our trip and didn’t go into that level of detail, mostly due to the lack of time. Sometimes travelling is hard work and we simply don’t have time to share all our impressions with you. However, this time we could not resist After spending almost a week in Beijing we headed down to Pingyao, one of the preserved ancient Chinese towns to get the taste of China, the way it was many centuries ago We did not only enjoy the beautiful architecture and special atmosphere, but also got to try the best noodles ever!
