The landscape in and around Dazhai was just so stunning; as usual I took an abundance of photographs (some might say I went a bit overboard… 😉 ). Here are just some of my favorite pictures of the beautiful farm lands, charming villages and interesting people…
A friendly Yao woman (Yao is the minority group that lives in Dazhai); she wanted us to buy her tomatoes but unfortunately that’s one of the few vegetables I don’t like!
An elderly man in one of the villages above Dazhai. I’m pretty sure I saw his picture somewhere on the Lonely Planet page – I think hanging out on a sunny spot by the wall to pose for tourist’s snaps is his full-time job and he’s probably the most photographed man in all of Longsheng.
