China

The south western province of Yunnan attracted me for travel in 1996 as part of my route from Hong Kong to Lahore in Pakistan. It attracted me because of its closeness to Viet Nam and Laos, ( two countries I had previously visited ) and to Myanmar (Burma) and Tibet.

I spent three months moving around the mountains and villages, visiting the capital of Yunnan, Kunming, three times in order to get two visa extensions.
