Skiing fun in South China (I)
    2013-12-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

  

  IT’S now the best time of the year for skiing in China, and you don’t necessarily have to travel to the northeast of China for snowy fun. There are some areas in the southern part of China which also provide good facilities and magnificent views for skiers who don’t have so much time or such a high budget. The weather and environment are also more comfortable, which are perfect for those who are used to warm life in Guangdong Province.Shennongjia ski field,
