Feedback by the tour leader


The Photographers Tour to China has returned after a fascinating journey, visiting many different environments in Huanglong and Jiuzhaigou UNESCO Parks and the landscapes and pandas of Sichuan. A train journey from Chengdu to Lhasa brought the tour group to Tibet where they experienced and photographed the ancient Tibetan culture, traditions, architecture and people.


Among the highlights for the photographers were the Panda Centre and Ginko Trees in Chengdu as well as the Duijiangyan Irrigation System. The Songpan Tibetan Village in the Huanglong Valley was excellent for photographic opportunities and there was time to walk and photograph at leisure.


In Lhasa, Tibet, the street life and people outside the Jokhang Temple were fascinating and tour members kept going back any free time they had to take photographs. Viewing the Potala Palace in the evening was well worth the visit.


There was time for at least 2 hours of photography a day which was all that was expected by the participants. All tour members learnt much about the three provinces of China that were visited and they also improved their understanding of the Chinese and Tibetan people.
