It’s not surprising that one of the easiest and most interesting ways for most non-Chinese speaking people to experience Virtual China is through images. We’ve talked about ziboy, one of the oldest and best known Chinese photoblogs, here before. Today I came across Photoblog China, an aggregator site with links to over 800 photoblogs. They are all searchable (in Chinese) by popularity, city, province, and keyword. Fantastic stuff if you have some time to poke around.
The most popular on the list belongs to ToughSpoon and 22, a Beijing couple (I’m guessing) who enjoy photography and have some beautiful shots. Looks like they recently took a trip to one of the most magical places in the world — the lesser known tombs in the Ming Tomb area outside of Beijing. The photos bring you right there.
Most of the blogs are from Beijing (178), Shanghai (55) and Guangzhou (42); but there are also entries from all over China, such as northwestern Lanzhou (7), northeastern Changchun (5), and Hainan Island’s Haikou (3). Here’s a shot from Ye Fei’s blog, one of 9 from Inner Mongolia.
