Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!
Do you like travelling? Where do you like to stay when you go travelling? Maybe some people like to stay in a hotel, and maybe some like to stay in an Airbnb. Recently in China, more and more people choose to drive a camper van to travel around China and it’s getting more and more popular. China is so big, and is it possible to travel around China by camper van? Let’s talk about it today.
In some video websites in China like Bilibili, we can see that there are many vlogs about travelling around China by camper van. Some are about driving camper can alone, some are about couples driving it. I like a vlog poster, whose name is Yang Xu. He was a boss of a company but his dream is to travel around China by Camper Van. To fulfil his dream, he sold his company and bought a camper van and started to travel around China. He’s almost been to every province in China, including Xinjiang and Tibet. He later also adopted a puppy, who is now living with him in his camper van and has been to many places, visited many beautiful sceneries and eaten many delicious foods with him.
Yang Xu filmed many videos and shared sceneries and people he saw when he was travelling. His video channel is called Travel Notes of Yang Xu, where he shared his experience of travelling around China by camper van. He has stayed over in many places in China in his camper van. Yang Xu said that there are many parking and service areas in China, where camper vans can charge up their batteries and fill up water. Many service areas are equipped with bathrooms. If some people don’t have bathrooms and toilets in their camper van, they can shower in the service areas.
He uploaded many videos and now there are over 1 million followers and friends are watching his videos. Sometimes, he would come across his followers and friends on his way and people would go to his camper van to chat or bring him some food. Yang Xu said he always felt moved and touched by people’s kindness whenever he saw them. Now he has been travelling around China for 300 days. In his 300th day video, he said that,
“Hello everyone. This is Yang Xu’s Travel Note. This is the 300th day of travelling around China by camper van. I have to applaud myself. This applause is also for everyone. It is because of your accompany, I don’t feel lonely on my way. Obviously, today is a special day and this is a special video. In the second half of the video, I would like to look back with you on the beautiful things, emotional things and even some challenging things. Anyway, all of these ultimate feelings are valuable.”
I really like what Yang Xu Said. He said that even some feelings about challenges are very valuable. In fact, travelling around China by camper van is also one of my dreams, because China is so big and every place has its own characteristic. Also now many places provide parking and service areas especially for people who drive camper van to stay over, which is very convenient. Although I am Chinese, there are many places in China that I haven’t been to. I hope one day that I can travel around China, even the world, by camper van. Do you like travelling by camper van?
