My wife and I are planning on travelling to Southwest China for all of August, and I was wondering if any fellow forumosans have been there and wanted to share any experiences or advice. I haven’t booked a ticket yet, but my tentative plan is to fly to Kunming (via Hong Kong of course) and then fly back from Hong Kong at the end of the month.
The 3 areas I’m most interested in are from Dali up through to Deqin (Tibetan area), Xishuangbanna (SE Asia flavour), and Yangshuo (limestone mountains), but everything is flexible. Anyone have any better ideas?
I’m wondering how rural Chinese and minority people would accept my Taiwanese wife. I’m sure some will frown upon both her nationality and her choice of a white guy as a husband, but would it likely be a problem for us?
I was also wondering about what to expect from the weather. I realize it’s the wettest time of the year, but will it really be that bad?
Thanks for any info you want to share!
