Zhangjiajie photo diary. Part 1

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is definitely one of the most spectacular places I have ever visited. Zhangjiajie is a city situated in Hunan province and it’s famous for it’s “Avatar” mountains. Remember those flying rocks from Pandora? They were inspired by Zhangjiajie.  I was honoured to attend my very good friend’s wedding which was in Harmona Resort & Spa.

It was an amazing traditional Chinese wedding about which I will tell you later. Let’s come back to the park. I had a plenty of time to explore the surrounding areas. My  first impression that I got is “Oh God, this park is huge”….literally!! I spent there 3 days and seems that I saw just about 30 percent. Second impression was that paying 40$ for 3 days pass is totally worth it! Park is super well maintained. Well it’s THAT maintained, that some ladies come there in high heels! There are food stalls, toilets and rest places every 15-20 minutes, which is a big plus in such a gigantic place.

If you are planning to travel in China, here is the most important rule !!!!! Avoid days off, holidays and weekends otherwise get ready to line up for 3-4 hours to get to a sightseeing spot! Anyway, if you will have any other questions, I will answer them with a great pleasure.

Girl of the month. Oksana On

Oksana On is a stylist and Senior fashion editor of Glamour Russia. To me she is a fresh face on the street style pages and a great source for fashion inspiration. It’s hard to describe Oksana’s style: it’s romantic, edgy, eclectic, definitely feminine and always sophisticated. It is very pleasant to see new faces from the fashion weeks street style chronicles.
