At the beginning of April we did a special 3-day trip to Wuyuan County in Jiangxi Province. Wuyuan possesses great natural beauty, and is famous for gorgeous, vast fields of yellow rapeseed flowers, the main focus of this trip. Also in the area: Jingdezhen, the ‘Porcelain Capital’ of China; several ancient villages with well-preserved architecture; the Rainbow Bridge; and the Jiangling Mountains.

Below are a few of Huijie's photos from the trip. People based in Beijing will find the photos interesting, as the lifestyle and land of southern China is quite different to that in the north.

This youngster was stowed in a steaming-barrel to prevent potential mischievousness. Normally used for steaming food, the barrels are sometimes used during winter to keep the kids warm.
