  1. Actually,so beautiful.Seems it lies in an island of west pacific.Indeed,In this planet,there are many very beautiful sites,though no big,no so famous as those metropolitics.I hope ur dreame come true as soon as possible!

  2. It’s my first posting here.

    Thank you for picking such beautiful pictures. But I wish Jianshuo could add more comments, not just a few eye-candy.

  3. Hi,

    Nice suggestion. I was looking for more information about this famous but still mysterious island for me. I hope I can add more information at this page, Li Jingyi.

  4. JSW,

    I like your travel comments. Do you have any information on Guilin? Or what are good tour agencies in shanghai that will arrange tours for you.

    Thanks

  5. Wow. Guilin is a wonderful place to visit. It is famous for the decent mountains and clean waters. If you want a travel agency, I guess China Youth Travel Services may be a good choice – I didn’t travel with them yet, but I know their reputation is not bad. Tel: Phone: 8610 6513 3153

  6. When people think of Tahiti, paintings by a French painter, Paul Gaugain, often come to mind. The man set sail for the French Polynesia in 1891, and decided to stay in the South seas there for the rest of his life.

    His paintings — which features primitive forms and brilliant colors — have a certain rustic beauty to them.

    Incidently, painting was his third career. He was a stockbroker in Paris before that — and a remarkably successful one at that. When the stock market crashed, he got laid off and decided to become a painter — and led a penniless life to his death. (Well, he left for Tahiti in part to run away from his debts, but that’s another story)

    At least Gaugain got famous eventually — after his death, of course. But many aspiring artists in history simply never made it. Adolf Hitler, for example, was a gifted artist who just couldn’t accepted to art school. He ended up joining the military and got famous in another way.

  7. JSW,

    Thanks! they are ranked #4 of the top agencies I will research and check it out. Yes everyone says Guilin is very pretty.

    Nick

  8. Yes. Try the agency out.

    Guiline is the traditional spot of scene. It is famous for centuries. There are some places like Lijiang, Daocheng and others which are just become famous these two years. The newer one is also very nice.

  9. Well, this is an old item, but still intersting !

    If you want a good vacation in easy access of Shanghai, try the Philippines !

    Only 3 hours flight from Pudong Airport, a returnticket is around 3700 RMB.

    Everyone speaks english, and they are friendly !

    Cheap accomodation and food too.

    The Philippines is a beautiful country, and half of the beauty lies beneath the surface of the warm clear water.

    There are volcanoes, caves, jungles, lots of beaches, nightlife, and most people are very keen to the elections. The latest election was for the president, who is a woman (!), re-elected recently.

    Total price for 2 persons in 18 days incl. tickets : 11000 RMB

    I have been there 4 times now, the last 2 times with my girlfriend Xiuying.

    She couldn’t swim, but learned it the 2’nd time there.

    When someone can swim 200 meters they can join a PADI diving school and learn to dive in just 3-4 days, so she did (I have been diving since 1999).

    It is truly a wonderful experience to dive with the one you love !

    Diving class is 260 $ incl. everything. Expect no schools teaching in chinese as 99,5% of the chinese tourists comes from either Hongkong or Taiwan.

    With an Open Water Diver license you can have dives all over the world. Dives costs from 15 to 28 $ each, incl. all equipment.

    Usually you will go to depths between 8 to 30 meters, lasting 40-60 min.

    The dive-master at the shop will guide you to the best places.

    As the schools are businesses they want to teach you more, and then you can dive deeper and longer. I can recommend the Advanced Open Water Diver course, it can be in extention of the basic OWD, and at nearly same price.

    Begin with clicking on http://www.lonelyplanet.com/destinations/south_east_asia/philippines/

    for more details on the destination, and

    http://www.travelpuertogalera.com/index.htm

    for info of Puerto Galera, a convenient and popular dive and action place, only 4-5 hours from Manila airport where you arrive.

    I come from Europe, so I can go there for 21 days without any visa, but chinese mainland citizens are required to obtain a visa (250 RMB).

    No surprise to that, because mainland China requires visa from ALL foreigners – that’s why all others demands a visa from chinese visitors !

    If you have a job, and you are financially ok, you will have no trouble.

    Your employer must write an officially stamped letter where it is stated that you will still have a job there when you get back !

  12. Hi kayla

    Do you know how foreigners can buy real estate in Tahiti Islands ?

    Is it still french rule there ?

  13. Wow thanks for the great pics. They inspire the heck out of me!! They’ll help keep me focused on my plan, that I should reach in just 4 more years.

  14. Amore’ you can’t tell us of a plan, and then don’t tell what the plan is about :-(

    That’s not fair for curious blog readers.

  15. Hello, I found your blog from searching gooogle images for pictures of tahiti. I would like permission to use the second picture (of the water) as a background image for my own online journal. Is that possible? I will credit your site of course. Let me know. Thank you!

  16. My wife and I went to Tahiti on our honeymoon and we fell in love with the people, islands, and the culture. It took us a little while to slow down to the Polynesian pace but once we did, we took full advantage of everything the islands offer. If you are on the island of Moorea, make sure to go on Dr. Michael Poole’s whale and dolphin watching excursion….it was amazing. We saw humpback whales, blue whales, spinner dolphins, sea turtles and giant stingrays. Sunset dinner on a motu’ is also well worth the money. We also rented cars on both Bora Bora and Moorea and found some great shops and sights otherwise unseen.

  17. 1st of all i am only 16, and i think that tahiti is so beautiful…and that is a place that i have always dreamed of going to. I am tahitian and i hane never been to tahiti in my life…taht is pretty sad.
