A five and a half hour bus ride East of Ningbo to Huangshan City, or Tunxi, travels through the gorgeous hilly scenery of Anhui province.
Another 1.5 bus and taxi ride later you can be near some ancient Chinese cities and stay in the surrounding countryside.
We found this great hotel/ B&B that is the building behind me surrounded by the abundant flax seed flowers.
They cooked the local wide greens of the season and a fish for us.
Excellent food in seemingly the middle of no where.
