Coast Fujian & W. Guanxi (Apr./May 2014)

Xiapu County in Fujian has a long established aquaculture industry where, traditionally, many of those engaged in it have lived in floating houses. Spring is kelp season and it was much in evidence on our visit. From there we headed to the rugged karst mountains of Napo County on the Guanxi/Yunnan border and its Zhuang and Yi villages, two of which were celebrating their fourth month festivals.
