Favorite Fujian SitesLhasa at Last!  Our van in front of Potala Palace
Our Favorite Province   In 1994, we drove our van, "Toy Ota," over 40,000 km around China, from Xiamen on the coast up to Mongolida, through the Gobi Desert, and to Tibet and back. (Read "Tibet or Bust!") Since then we've driven another 100,000+ km. around China, but Fujian is still our favorite province.  Click links below for intros to our favorite places!

Not this year, Dear… Ancient Huì’ān custom dictates that, until a child is born, newlyweds may sleep together only on 3 nights a year : Spring Festival, Grave Sweeping Day, and Mid-Autumn Festival. Until a child is born, if they meet one another on the street, they must act as if they don’t even know each other.
They must really make hay on the holidays!
