She shares her favourite destination (1:04), her least favourite destination(1:56), why she loves Beijing (3:03), tips on what to bring when traveling to china for the first time(4:58), how to get off the beaten path(6:46), what food you HAVE to try when you are there(9:22), and much more! Check it out.

› HOW I ACCESS YOUTUBE IN CHINA
The VPN I’m using to access all the western websites from China (such as Facebook, Youtube and Instagram) is ExpressVPN. You can get it here: http://bit.ly/2BgvMTI
I have used since 2015, and so far I am very satisfied. During certain times of the year, I struggle tog et on it – but the great thing about ExpressVPN is that their customer service is always available through their live chat, and they always try to help me if I encounter any problems.
› ABOUT ME
My name is Miriam Follin. I’m a Swedish woman who has been living and traveling in China since 2015. 2017 I married and began living with my Chinese husband in Xining, Qinghai (north western China), and we have a baby boy, born in 2018. On this channel I share our life, the people and the places we come across. We love rural areas, so you will find a lot of content from rural China.
