Skillett Press, Aug 1, 2008 - Travel - 184 pages
Claire Payne had had enough of pretty much everything associated with being a sometime barmaid and long-time temp in London. This is the story of two months she spent travelling around the People's Republic of China with two friends and a rucksack in a quest to escape the rat race. The journey begins in Bangkok, moves on to Chengdu and takes in panda's, temples, giant Buddha's, the Great Wall of China, Terracotta Warriors and many other sights along the way before ending in Nanning, on the border of Vietnam. An insightful and often witty voyage via plane, train, tuc tuc and river boat through a country where reality and propaganda merge with disarming ease. For all those who wanted to visit China but never quite found the time, Claire's travelogue is a great starting off point to gain a bit of insight into an often misunderstood but wholly enchanting land.
