Our Family Adventures: Travel Photography in Yunnan (with Ron Yue, www.ronyue.com) will take you and your family through some of Yunnan’s best-loved destinations—Dali, Lijiang and Shangri-La—and via some little-known gems on an itinerary designed specifically for families to enjoy together. To make this journey even more special, we have teamed up with Ron, one of Hong Kong’s best photographers. Ron will be on-hand to coach you through a series of children-friendly, but formal lectures and workshops as you travel along a route designed with budding family travel photographers in mind. Ron will also work with you or your children, hands-on, side-by-side to help you improve your skills!
With Ron on the journey, rest assured that all special moments will be captured along this leisurely itinerary, where you and your children will join a range of fun activities and share new experiences. Go fishing with cormorants in Dali, explore Lijiang’s old town, watch endangered monkeys at play outside Tacheng and visit a lively Tibetan monastery in Shangri-La.
There will be opportunities to interact with the region’s colourful minorities and try delicious local foods throughout the journey, which we hope will give your family a wonderful opportunity to experience a new, beautiful and unexpected side of China together. All along this exciting route you will enjoy the best accommodation available – staying in some of Asia’s loveliest hotels – and travel through an area steeped in the cultures of many different ethnic minorities and through some of the region’s most stunningly beautiful countryside.See less
