Your photos always amaze me, Scotty! These shots of Yangshuo blows my mind away! I would love to go on a trip like yours, flying on a hotair balloon! Wow, seeing the earth from a higher perspective!

Mind if I ask you, how much does it cost to go on the hot air balloon ride?

Thx. Wish you and family a happy weekend ahead!

Thanks for the nice comments....

J.C., the balloon ride was only about 75 bucks each for an hour ride, and well worth every cent.

Cheers,

Scotty

Somehow I don't think I would like to be over that superb scenery in a plane, I know too many ilots who have flown there and too much about the types of aircraft too. Lovely photos as always
