Even though we had some crazy and not-so-great experiences in our six weeks in China, I think some of the most GORGEOUS landscapes we saw all year were actually in this country! Incredible rolling hill-type mountains, temples, the Great Wall of China, wild monkeys, and beautiful culture surrounded us at every turn!

Below are some of our BEST scenic photos from our time in China. Enjoy!… and please comment below on which are your favorite(s)!

    Love them all, but the Zhangjiajie National Forest is just amazing landscape! And you were lucky to have such a clear day at the Great Wall of China, such a nice shot!

    • BreAnn BreAnn says:

      Yea, I LOVED Zhangjiajie, and I LOVED hiking day in and day out. Such an amazing place 🙂

      And yes, you are TOTALLY right… we were SUUUUUPER lucky to have a clear day at the Great Wall! Beijing area is SO smoggy and gross, the sky is normally WHITE at all times!
