More about this book - Exploring Natural China
The Chinese ecotourism industry is expanding fast, with 15 million foreign tourists visiting in 2008 and access to remote areas becoming easier by road and air. Exploring Natural China reflects this growing interest: it is the only natural-history travelogue on China written and photographed by a naturalist/biologist who has been there. .
In the course of her travels Heather Angel saw not only the iconic pandas and tigers but pink dolphins in Hong Kong and the curious-looking takins in Sichuan. Over 250 photos taken in 13 offbeat locations show the notable plants and wildlife in scenery ranging from bamboo forests to alpine pastures. Detailed maps encourage you to follow in Heather’s footsteps, while her ‘Travellers’ Tips’ covers all the things – from how to order food to what mains adapters to take – that you wish you had known before you left home.
Exploring Natural China is essential reading for anyone planning to explore the wilder parts of China and for armchair travellers who prefer to sit back and learn more about this enigmatic country.
