Huzhou, China, taken on December 14, 2016

In Huzhou we saw this interesting sculpture of what seemed to be a food vendor in the old days, and my mom was certainly more fond of the man in the sculpture than were the rest of us. Her “interaction” with the sculpture actually seemed to make the entire scene come alive – how amusing!

This pool has the most turquoise water I’ve ever seen and I began to wonder if the photos of the Fairy Pools on Skye had really been taken here… 😛 So clear and pure that I wanted to jump in for a swim!

Huzhou, China, taken on December 15, 2016

Suzhou is certainly not the only place in the Jiangsu-Zhejiang area with beautiful gardens. Huzhou, a relatively small and uncrowded city compared with Suzhou and Hangzhou, hides the gorgeous Lotus Garden, a haven for people who just want to relax. The “small bridges and flowing waters” of the garden are characteristic of the Jiangnan (south Yangtze River area) region and are the symbol of classical Chinese beauty. (See the original photo in colour.)

Suzhou, China, taken on December 12, 2016

Suzhou is well known for its beautiful classic gardens and a visit to Suzhou is not complete without admiring one or two of these. The layout and decorations of each garden are intricately and elegantly designed, a true classical Chinese architectural masterpiece.

Hangzhou, China, taken on December 14, 2016

When I visited Hangzhou in summer 2010, I was so stunned by the beauty of the West Lake that I made it a bucket list item to visit this beautiful place in every season. Now I am visiting it during the winter and although there is no snow, the West Lake is still elegantly beautiful as expected. The willows along the banks add such grace to the landscape and I fell in love with it all over again. Anticipating the next visit – spring or fall – already!
