Zos M Profile

I started counting WHS visit since 2016 after relocating to China. Ticking off a site is just half the fun. Like most of us here in this community, the excitement is more on seeing places and understanding what makes it have an OUV. I particularly cherish going to off-the-beaten tracks - sites not on the tourist trails and if not for WHS listing might seem not worth a visit but many ended up getting surprised by what it offers.

Currently still based in Beijing I make it a goal to see all China WHS and as many as possibly on its T-list. Occasionally, in particular during China peak tourist season, I ventured to other countries and see what it offers.

I spent 3 days exploring all inscribed components during a 4-day Qingming holiday weekend. My visit was possibly a few days before Juha’s and I concur to his impressions on the review below. As he had excellently written about the components he visited, I will focus mine on the others in a lengthy review.

English information on Hanoi-Nanning train route is limited. But coming from Hanoi, the MR1 train actually stops at Ningming Country. Hotels in Hanoi can book train tickets – mine costs $35 USD to Pingxiang Border and I bought Pingxiang-Ningming at the station for 11 RMB. The train leaves Hanoi at 9:15 PM and arrives Ningming at 7:00 AM.
