At Shenzhen Airport

I have spent about one month in Asia, most of the time visiting China. Hong Kong was my gateway to the continent, and Macau was the place I met Portuguese history. It was my first trip to Asia.

On April 25th, I took an early flight from Lisbon to Hong Kong, via Amsterdam. I arrived at Hong Kong airport early in the morning on 26th 2006, and then I travelled in Hong Kong using a MTR day ticket. In the late evening I took a boat to Macau, where I spent two nights. 
On April 28th I travelled by boat to Shenzhen, from where I travelled by plane to Kunming. This city was my departing point to explore Yunnan Province. Besides this Province, in China I had opportunity to visit places such as Yangshuo, the most interesting place I have visited, GuangzhouShanghai and, finally, Beijing.
