TWT Travel Binder: China

For us, China is a series of colorful, dissolving images:
The Great Wall, chalky mountains like castle towers,
endless feasts, ancient fishing boats, lacquered scrollwork,
enormous golden buddhas and of course, panda bears.

Here are some resources to help you plan your own “travels with two” to China.
