China Luxury Travel

Lost Opportunities Found

The land of opportunity; a place of unlimited possibilities. For all the talk of a Chinese gold rush, perhaps the rarest commodity is a glass of Champagne on a less-frequented portion of the Great Wall. Or is it the simple pleasure of following the lazy downhill meander of Yangtze by bicycle. Unlimited possibilities, realized the B&R way.

it. I’m trying to drill backwards, into some historic experience of this incredible place. And for a moment, on my very first morning in China – in a lush green valley north of Lijiang, in rustic Yunnan province – I’m pretty sure I’ve succeeded.
