D6. Qinzhou-Wanwei Golden Beach (100km)
Wanwei Golden Beach in Dongxing is a temporary addition to the itinerary, just for one word: eat! In order to eat, I also stayed for one night.
If you are not a foodie, please detour!
That’s what we’re here for
Combination of bazaars and restaurants
The restaurant does not supply ingredients, and the seafood is purchased by oneself in the market
The restaurant only charges a processing fee, usually no more than 200 yuan for a meal of seafood.
As for the ingredients, it varies from person to person, and each likes it.
We were too lazy to move around, so we found this hotel next to the market and checked in for food.
This is winter, how about some winter feeling? Hahaha
cheap! Must eat two meals. (Tomorrow we will enter the inland border from the coastal border, so we must eat enough.)
(In fact, this is a very good place to watch the sea and play in the sand for vacation. Maybe because it faces the Beibu Gulf, the beach is not very good, but it is really long enough, comparable to the Gold Coast.) So far, the second task has been completed: Let the foodies pass by good year!
They are all here to enjoy the sea, so let’s not join in the fun.
D7. Wanwei Golden Beach – Yanbian Highway – Exploring the Sino-Vietnamese Border – Friendship Pass – Pingxiang (280km)
Another farewell photo before entering the inland border. (This is the earliest day of departure in the entire itinerary)
The wind, rolling the spray of the waves, like endless smoke and dust, embraces everything on the shore… Hahahahahaha (just don’t spray)
Formal Entry: Traveling on the Border of the Three Kingdoms in Southern Xinjiang
After leaving the Weiwei Beach, there is a coastal path that can reach Dongxing Port as soon as possible.
The coordinates of the so-called sea-land boundary demarcation point.
do not shoot white do not shoot
The start of this border tour: Yanbian Highway S325
We found a small village on the border, the border river was only ten meters wide, and there were sunken stone roads in the river, our cars could drive across without any pressure.
The boundary marker can be vaguely seen on the other side, and the small ramp directly in front is the place for the car to go ashore.
Another ancient border village, here is slightly wider, but the river is still very shallow.
There was no staff on duty at all, and he went abroad with his trousers lifted. (No wonder there are so many Vietnamese brides who come to China illegally, they can’t keep it at all )
The boundary marker on the opposite bank happened to meet a local old man who came to the river. After inquiring, I found out that the people in the villages on both sides of the strait still move around very intensively, because they are all young, speak the same language, and intermarry with each other, and over time they are all related. The real love between two sides of a strip of water!
This is a county-level port.
This is a border port at the township level, allowing cross-strait border residents to trade.
Are there any cows that escaped from Vietnam? Hahaha
The small town on the other side is no worse than China
To end the exploration of the two ancient border villages, we must hurry up. The Yanbian Highway is far from being as easy as imagined. There are hundreds of bends on the mountain road, and there are many speed tests. The delay in the ancient village was relatively long, so lunch could only be handled briefly, and the last 50 kilometers of mountain roads were abandoned and changed to the national road to Youyi Pass.
take a picture
Border Trade City has to buy some, otherwise it won’t be like the rhythm of “tourism”.
Portraits can’t be missed
She is a beautiful woman, she has to show her face sooner or later.
The color of the French architecture is quite “gratifying”
it’s almost sunset
At night, enter the urban area of Pingxiang.
TIPS: Yanbian Highway, Dongxing to Pingxiang section, only the first 120 kilometers are more visible. After Aidian Port, you can choose the national highway or expressway to Youyiguan. The recommended departure time for Dongxing is 8:00.
D8. Pingxiang-Detian Waterfall Aibu Waterfall-Jiuzhou-Equan-Mengzi (780km)
When I went out, I calculated the time, combined with the scenery value of Yanbian Highway, temporarily decided to abandon Yanbian Highway and take the national highway and expressway instead.
There is nothing to shoot, just click two photos by the way.
Detian Waterfall, a place not to go if you can. Tickets are expensive and crowded. The scenery is average, and there are still such and such tosses.
Summary: Not going is a miss, and going is a loss. (The above is purely personal opinion)
After walking around, it seems that it is not for the scenery, but for the humanities. Hahaha
A typical “green hat king”!
Vietnam also has beauties
Vietnamese bamboo rafts
I still like this one more
The seller on the other side, wearing this dress, feels back to the 80s.
No matter how you look at the other side, it doesn’t look like a scenic spot.
There’s nothing much to see, so hurry up and get into your own rhythm. The scenery has to be found on the road by yourself! De Tian came out and went to another wild waterfall to have a look. But S325 refused to let go, and had to re-circle for more than 40 kilometers to get to “Aibu Waterfall”. (In the off-season, the Detian section of Yanbian Highway can be used for commuting. But in the peak season, vehicles cannot pass the Detian section smoothly.)
If you want to see a wild waterfall, you have to “override the thorns and thorns” to see it. Hahaha
here comes the fun
find a good photo spot
Although the waterfall is small, it does not cost money and does not crowd people
It’s beautiful, and it didn’t go in vain.
When Aibu comes out, he can find another trail in the village and see the life of the villagers.
All the way along the 276 country road trot
good brother all the way
Passing by this, I actually have to charge tickets, so I bypassed it decisively. (Looking at this gate building, I can’t see where the “old” is)
The focus of the evening is below…
Goose Spring, this bridge is matched with the setting sun, it’s amazing!
Typical Guangxi karst landform
It’s getting dark, and it’s time to calculate the relationship between distance and time. Lion Mountain, Baiguo Village, Babaili River, Laoshan, Tianbao Port, Babao Town… can only be ruthlessly given up.
The focus shifted to Yunnan. Honghe (Mengzi) is a good place to stay.
D9, Mengzi – Bisezhai – Jianshui Ancient City (80km)
It is obviously not my style to give up so many natural landscapes for a small train station. But the accompanying family members are happy, hahaha!
Get started first! Do you have the feeling of “Youth” stills? Hahaha
Please ask Du Niang for the history of this train station, hehe
The most representative French three-sided clock
Why do French people like yellow so much?
I have to admit, this is a good place to make a film! Director Feng’s vision is precise!
it’s time for the car
Slow down, wait for me! ! !
This one looks good
The windows are all crooked, and I can’t be bothered to fix them.
Pack! Keep pretending!
Wait until the flowers are gone…
The train really left! Hahaha
I can’t load it anymore, I have to rush to another “station” on the old Burma Railway, but there are many stations worth visiting.
Next stop: Chicken Street Station
To find this station, you have to go through an old residential area.
too old station
The yellow wall can barely see its original life experience
The door is closed, people are leaving the building empty
Chicken Street is very close to Sardin, so take a look at this magnificent mosque. Unexpectedly, there would be such a large-scale Islam in a province densely populated by ethnic minorities in Yunnan. Chatting with a staff member, it is said that the ancestors migrated from Anhui, Jiangsu. Whether it is true or not is unknown.
It feels much bigger than the “Grand Mosque” in Xining!
By the way: Its staff, or believers, are so enthusiastic and caring for passers-by that I have never seen it before. I don’t know how to evaluate it, but as the saying goes: it must be greatly praised! ! !
I booked a very good homestay in Jianshui. I was tired and needed a rest. You must sleep well and eat well today! Arrived at [South B&B] early, great location, unique decoration…it did not disappoint us, hahaha, this is not an advertisement.
Keep pretending! ! !
Don’t pretend to be sorry for the price (actually it’s not too expensive)
My circle of friends say this is the best! Hahahahahaha
Can no longer upload pictures, more and more suspected of advertising.
To the point. Two highlights of Jianshui Ancient City:
1. Ancient city and ancient buildings;
2. It is still a “railway station”;
If there is a third point to watch, it is “buy”.
It is said that Zitao is very famous, and when he leaves tomorrow, he has to go home as soon as possible. Continue to the above picture:
The ancient city building, the feeling of the Qianmen building!
The ancient city and town with Yunnan characteristics, I have seen it.
When you see a nice small pottery shop, you need to take a look at it. By the way, I picked a few to take home.
The Ssangyong Bridge in the suburbs must be photographed.
Also known as 15 hole bridge
I missed an important introduction: Lin’an Railway Station must be supplemented by Jianshui County, also known as Lin’an Town, an important station on the Yunnan-Burma Railway…
Urgent, we are about to leave this place that is so artistic and so small and fresh, let us “pretend” for a while! Hee hee hee
Tips: Jianshui small train, it is recommended to book tickets in advance, there are only two trains a day. If you don’t like taking pictures, you can ignore this little train. The itinerary of the train was a bit procrastinated. It took about 50km in four hours, going the same way and going back the same way. There are 5-6 stops along the way, and there are not many shooting spots.
