China travel features_china travel news_china travel blogs_china travel stories biking in china We read a lot about travel over the course of one week and, after much sifting and sorting, we've rounded up a few of our favorites. From news and reviews to great blog posts, unusual destinations and travel stories, read on for our picks. >>> It was a good week for China travel stories (and for our ability to find them). Interesting stuff out there on hunting in Tibet (more after the jump below), some good Taiwan stuff and a fascinating bit on the War to Defend the Motherland against white moths. Check it out:
  • Train travel has been in the news a lot recently after the Wenzhou Tragedy. We wrote a couple pieces about trains here on China Travel, just a small portion of the may posts all over the Web about the high-speed train crash. This photo post from a the blogger who calls himself "Minnesotan in China," A Little China Choo Choo, is welcome a reminder of the good things about trains in China, and along with his post on foot-binding (there are still old women sporting bound feet out there, amazinging), China: Bone-breaking pressure, is a good read.
  • We dig Chengdoo's  interview with the downhill mountain bike Viking, Extreme Gravity: Downhill Biking with Mika Muukkonen. Rad.
  • ChinaSmack makes our weekly faves with the following post on the differences tipping culture in China and in the USA. The main thrust: the service industry in the US is actually a form of slavery. Just kidding. Sort of. Anyway: "Tipping the Scales: American Waitresses and Chinese tourists."
