Members of the Society of American Travel Writers embarked on a 14-day “Impression of Shaanxi” journey from March 29th to April 11th. The quest for folk and local customs in Shaanxi gradually wound to a close on the penultimate day of the trip.

The travelers began their journey from Xi’an in Shaanxi Province and passed through such cities as Xianyang, Hanzhong, Hancheng, Yulin, and Yan’an. Throughout the trip, members of the Society of American Travel Writers were treated to a broad panorama of Chinese history and culture, breathtaking natural scenery, a taste of distinctive local Shaanxi cuisine and a rich and delightful blend of traditional folk customs. The American guests brought back to the US a memory and experience of the geographically diverse lands in southern Shaanxi, the central Shanxi plain and northern Shaanxi.(Kevin)
