In BIG pictures: the magic of China

China is the endlessly fascinating exotic travel destination that seemingly everyone wants to explore at least once in their lifetime. Arguably now most famous for its rapid and dizzying modernisation and in spite of overwhelmingly growth and change, there are still many places left that still offer a healthy dose of mystical Eastern magic which is really what makes this country stand out from the rest. Travelling around the country itself is the easiest it has ever been, and during my two week trip I took in sites ranging from one of history’s great cities – Beijing, the Great Wall of China, Xi’an and Leshan (where the Giant Buddha statue resides) to the now ultra modern metropolis of Shanghai. Here is my magical journey of China in BIG pictures…

All words and photos by Lee Hubbard.

Lee mostly spent his formative years as a junior Spielberg wannabe, devouring movies in front of a cinema screen, but then a “year out” after graduating turned into a not-too-shabby six years of working, travelling and volunteering across the globe and thus a change of career beckoned. Attempting to satisfy his curiosity and passion for discovery both at home and abroad, he became a concierge at a top London hotel and a member of the prestigious Les Clefs d’Or, whilst still finding time to visit over 60 countries. Although UK based, through travelling he's cannily found a way to combine all his passions - seeking out film locations, off-the-beaten track adventures and wildlife encounters with orangutans, whale sharks, gorillas and polar bears all while wearing an eternal smile on his face. He counts New Zealand, Tanzania, Denmark and Borneo among his favourite travel destinations. Follow Lee on Google+
