Tourist photos from China to Makassar

It has taken me a while to process these photos, so here goes. Chengdu was my last stop on my trip to China. It went so fast and now it seems like an eternity ago.

Train to XiChang


Train to XiChang

This is the slow sleeper train from Kunming to Xichang. It has three rows of bunks. I slept on the middle one. They were actually pretty comfy. I caught the bus from XiChang to Chengdu.

Bicycles galore


Bicycles galore

There are thousands and thousands of bicycles near the square. They are all for rent and you have to scan the bar code with your phone to open the lock. Everything in China gets paid for on your phone. Using cash is almost over there now.

Advertising


Advertising

Advertising is everywhere in China. Even while waiting for a lift in a building you get bombarded by ads and then, even inside the lift. This one is huge in a square in the fashion district of Chengdu.

Durian Pizza

I could not believe it at first but I tried it and it was pretty good. Very sweet.

Traffic Overpass


Traffic Overpass

The traffic is insane in the cities. There are no rules and drivers just push and shove to get where they want to go. It is utter chaos!

After a big walk, we sat down in a dumpling shop and ordered some jozu. They were pretty good. All healthy and steamed.

Little India


Little India

In Singapore I stayed near Little India. There was great food available. I feasted on Marsala Dosa, chai, and Puri Subji.

Bugis Schooner

At Pantai Lorasai, there was a bugis schooner tied up at the wharf. I thing mainly for touristic effect.
