‘Staycation’, a phrase increasingly spoken of over the last two years. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this has become a norm for many people. Basically it refers to staying in one’s home country or city while not traveling beyond the borders.

Over recent years there has been a steadily rising trend of Chinese people going overseas for vacations- a reflection of the growing affluence for many in today’s China. Travel, a desire to experience and understand lands well away from our everyday lives. That is one reason I came overland to China in 1987. Many years later, I still remain passionate about my travels within this country.
