Travel Guide: Savannah + Sewanee – Junyuan | Professional Bag Manufacturer

Shout out to all my G.R.I.T.S.-Travel Guide Gift

Every mile is a memory when you’re in God’s country (the south). This May, Deb and I have been compiling our own savory, southern narratives during our respective trips to Savannah, Georgia, and Sewanee, Tennessee. While Deb was on a midnight train to Georgia for a wedding, I headed to my Southern comfort zone and alma mater, the University of the South, for my little brother’s graduation. Lord, we were born ramblin’ women and are back in the District with a southern state of mind (and a little bit chicken fried). So, why don’t y’all giddy up, giddy up, and get gone with the wind with us!

“Most of Oglethorpe’s city (Savannah) has passed on to the ghostly realm, too, but his urban-planning legacy remains a walkable, bikeable, town, one of the loveliest haunts in the South” -Chris Dixon, The New York Times.

There’s no sweeter southern treasure than biscuits, pies, cinnamon buns, and pop tarts made in-house. I couldn’t be more proud of Lil’ Debbie’s order: a biscuit with house-made jam, sausage, and a fried egg. What a way to start the day.

As Deb so accurately phrased it, “You know you’re in the south when the hotel robes are terry cloth lined seersucker.” From a secret garden, and Italian cafe, to the hallway of butterflies, this Kimpton property jewel is a prime example of contemporary swagger meets southern hospitality.

Experience-driven shopping comes to fruition at Paris Market and Brocante. Find new and old French gems for your home and wardrobe in this cache made complete with a coffee and candy bar.

Foxy Loxy is much more than a piping hot cup of the best coffee in Savannah. With a hip atmosphere, outdoor garden, and live music, the Tex-Mex cantina and coffee bar evades the slightest trace of a dull moment (or flavor).

What the New York Times calls the “Ikea antidote,” Alex Raskin Antiques is truly Savannah’s “most interesting shop.” This decadent manor is inundated with art, ephemera, secretaries, mirrors, rugs, chests, and tables (so…just about any funky, southern relic you can imagine). Alex Raskin brings a magical and meridional flair to the streets of Savannah.

Formerly a Greyhound bus terminal, this retro diner and oyster bar takes the traditional Sunday supper to the next level. Once you’ve polished off some pickled oysters, chicken liver mousse, slow-roasted leeks, ribeye, hibiscus lemon meringue, and beignets, make sure to grab a tootsie roll to sweeten the deal on your way out.

This airstream-chic eatery offers friendly indoor service and alfresco dining in the backyard. LD suggests ordering the fried avocado, homemade chips, and the “Triple P” (pepper jack, grilled pineapple, and prosciutto). A sloppy joe and apple pie sandwich are also on the menu. I’m hoping this is what Pappy Johns ordered because it sounds like it’d be up to his alley.

“It’s a long way away, even from Chattanooga, in the middle of woods, on top of a bastion of mountains crenelated with blue coves. It is so beautiful that people who have once been there always, one way or another, come back.” – William Alexander Percy

If you’re on a $5 budget and want awesome bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit, a cup of coffee, and a pleasant spot to speed an entire book before class, head straight to the Blue Chair Cafe and Tavern. It’s highly likely there’ll be a town meeting being called to order at the picnic benches. Your waitress will probably take one look at you and be able to guess your order like some sort of biscuit reader. Basically, you’re going to feel like you’re in an episode of the Andy Griffith Show (and you’ll LOVE it). Hit up the Tavern next door for earth-shattering chicken tenders, wings, and Jackalope Brewery pitchers on tap. BUT beware of Wednesday night BOGO, because we all know two Thunder Ann’s turns into four, turns into six, turns into…You get the idea.

Stocked with mountain treasures as charming as its name, the Lemon Fair is just the place to find uniquely Sewanee gifts, art, and accessories. Protected by the Legend of the Sewanee Angel and local SCOUT retailer, the Lemon Fair is full of gems that will make you want to click your red slippers and give you that “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home” feeling.

We take celebrations seriously on the “Domain,” especially graduation parties. The University upholds a strict policy that requires a bar, a band, and plenty of barbecue at said event. Invites aren’t necessary. As long as you’ve got a good attitude and your dancing shoes, you can saunter into any yard, frat, or house party you like.

The stained glass in All Saints Chapel is truly a sight to be seen, making the pomp and circumstance of graduating especially sentimental. With diplomas in hand, students can proudly step on the University’s seel as they exit the chapel.

Get a pitcher, fried pickles, and a group of friends together on the porch of Shenanigans, and you’ll never want to leave. On the night of graduation, it’s a tradition for the senior class to go to Shenanigans and celebrate for one last time on the mountain.

China has thirty-four provincial-level administrative units covering seven geographical regions. In the north, there are Beijing, the capital, Tianjin Municipality, and the other three provinces. Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning are the three provinces in the northeastern part that have chilly winters. The east, including six provinces and Shanghai City, mainly covers the developed eastern coastal area. Southern areas are subtropical and are comprised of three provinces Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. The traditional Cantonese culture that began in this region has been a highlight of Chinese culture until now.

The Southwest area has four provinces and one city located on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, and Sichuan Basin. A number of ethnic groups inhabit this region. The Northwest, which is inland and has the most complicated landform, is composed of five provinces, ready to offer an explorative China vacation. Also, it is the birthplace of the long history of the nation along the Yellow River. Henan, Hubei, and Hunan are in the Central part which serve as transportation hubs both on land and water.

To save your time and energy and allow the best value for your money, we carefully selected the top 10 China destinations and the most popular tour packages, in the hope of guiding international travelers, especially first-time visitors to better plan their vacation.

Top 10 China Destinations

Beijing – Imperial Capital and First Choice

Beijing - Imperial Capital and First Choice

Beijing, the capital of the country for over 850 years, is the first choice of international travelers. A perfect combination of classic elegance and modernity, it is the best China tourist destination to give you a comprehensive understanding of the country.

You can wander around the crimson Forbidden City to feel the dignity of the city, or you can stroll along the crisscrossing hutongs and immerse in everyday local life. There is an old saying among Chinese people: One who fails to reach the Great Wall is not a true hero. Badaling Great Wall to the north of downtown Beijing is the best-preserved section. You should be sure to put it on your must-see list.

By contrast, the mushrooming skyscrapers, bustling shopping streets, first-class museums, and grand Olympic venues all make you feel the modern charm of this mega capital.

Shanghai – Sleepless International Metropolis

Shanghai - Sleepless International Metropolis

Different from the profound heritage that Beijing holds, Shanghai shows visitors an overwhelmingly metropolitan atmosphere. Being the second top tourist destination in China, it is considered the center of the country’s commerce and fortune, and is titled the ‘shoppers’ paradise’.

The colonial history left Shanghai with a unique landscape. You can see clusters of classical western-style architectures on the Bund, the top waterfront sightseeing belt along the Huangpu River, the mother river of Shanghai. Across the river, Lujiazui Financial Zone is totally different sight. The high-rise Oriental Pearl Tower, World Financial Center, and Jin Mao Tower stretch upwards to form one of the world’s most splendid skylines.

The night view of Shanghai is like a splendid sea of lights. Flashing neon lights, elegant streetlights, and ever-moving headlights, all infuse a bit of romance into this sleepless city.

Xi’an – Splendor of Ancient Oriental Civilization

If you want to feel the history of China over the past 1,000 years, you can go to Beijing; however, if you want to delve into the 5,000 years’ history of this ancient oriental land, Xi’an is the best travel destination in China.

As one of the four major capitals of ancient civilization (together with Athens, Cairo, and Rome), Xi’an is the home of Chinese civilization. The renowned Silk Road starts from here, stretching through west China to the Mediterranean.

Over 7,000 years of history including 1,100 years as the ancient capital has endowed Xi’an with abundant historical sites. You can feel the power of the Qin Dynasty (221 – 207 BC), which once ruled the nation, in the Terracotta Army Museum. Or, you can cycle along the ancient City Wall to overlook the whole city. Climbing up the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and enjoying the splendid music fountain is also a distinctive experience.

Guilin – Top Karst Wonderland

Guilin - Top Karst Wonderland

Guilin, a peaceful city lying in the hilly southwest area of the country, is among the top China destinations for her extraordinary natural scenery. The unique karst landscape with four features, namely green hills, clear water, fantastic caves, and oddly-shaped rocks, has made it a reputable tourist resort since the old days.

Embraced by undulating hills with varied shapes, Guilin is traversed by the picturesque Li River. The winding watercourse from Guilin to Yangshuo is the prettiest part. Peaks along the river form the largest karst landscape in the world. Canoeing on the rippling river with lush bamboo groves on the banks is like being inside an endless landscape painting scroll. After disembarking in Yangshuo, a hike or cycle ride in the idyllic countryside is highly recommended.
