One For All

Gong Yani started her career as a synchronised swimmer when she was six years old. Originally from Wenzhou, in Zhejiang, her father believed she would have the chance of a better life if she joined the team. Her life since then has been through many ups and downs as she has struggled to progress to the senior team and have a shot at competing in the National championships. Her ultimate goal is to join the Chinese Olympic team. Coming back from a career threatening injury Yani is now captain of the Hunan Provincial team and working hard towards her goal.

A gorge and a mountain

In the second episode from Zhaoqing we visit one of Guangdong’s most popular tourist sites, plus hike a 10km gorge walk along an ancient path. Waterfalls, lakes, mountains and rivers all included as we take on Dinghu mountain and a walk back to Zhaoqing city.

To get there take bus 21 from Renmin road south to Dinghu Shan – the trip costs just 2 RMB. At the entrance you need to buy a 78 RMB ticket to get in. From the exit take a taxi to Huang Cun or number 6 bus from the Kang Kou station that also takes you to the start of the trail. At the end of the trail look for the number 1 bus that will you back into town.
