Close to the Golden Triangle and at the border of Tibet, the land of Lijiang in the Yunnan province is a land of mystery. Together we will explore old temples, vestiges of a one thousand year old China, and meet with locals still living like a hundred years ago in an incredibly well-preserved and rich countryside. Expeditions are family-friendly « less

My husband is a motorbike aficionado so we couldn't miss this chance to ride the sidecar & explore lijiang. Like the other reviews, the experience is pretty unforgettable. But I want to recommend the tour operator whose knowledge & passion for what he does is inspiring & take the tour to a higher level. We had our 3 year old... More

Kewen (owner of Chine Chine) talked me into doing one of the sidecar tours. As a backpacker with a budget, I was a bit hesitant because of the price but I booked the "Valley Ride" anyway. I'm so glad I did! The sidecars look so cool (I felt like Indiana Jones the whole time) and Kewen showed me some really... More

We have been doing a tour of Yunnan in a Beijing Jeep with Kewen starting in Baisha ( next to Lijiang) then to Shaxi, Shangri-La, Tiger Lipping gorges and back to Baisha in 3 days and we have seen the most amazing landscapes of this part of Yunnan. Kewen is not only an amazing driver, he is also a an... More

Kids and adults love this tour. There is nothing like riding around the valley and the mountains for eight hours with cool clean air whipping around your face. This is one of the highlights of my time in China. We did the long tour which took us to several Tibetan temples, a few villages, an abandoned commercial airfield, and to... More

I am a big petrol head for classic cars, motorcycles, etc, I have been living in China for 5 years and a big frustration is to don't have access to a classic motorcycle or car, they are almost non existent or forbidden in China depending where you live. I was in a small vacation in Lijiang with my family when... More

Riding in a sidecar around Lijiang is just AMAZING. We will NOT be disappointed, really. We did it with 4 sides in September 2012, for my mother's birthday (visiting China for 2 weeks) and it was a really nice present for her (and us :) She still talks about it!! The formula 5h around Lijiang is a must do when... More

We had the chance to do two different formulas offered by Kewen: -4H tour with Lijiang Sideways: exploring with driver by sidecar the surroundings of Lijiang going to some places that interesting, beautiful and not too long. In just 4 hours, you get a nice idea of what makes Yunnan so special! -8 days road trip with Sideways Escape: exploring... More

My girlfriend and I toured Lijiang and the surrounding area as part of a larger sidecar tour organised by Kewen and Thomas of Lijiang Sideways. The trip was simply amazing. Touring the countryside in a vintage style motorcycle, eating with the locals, enjoying the suburb accommodation organised for us, learning about the history and enojying a couple of beers with...

An ultimate service for an unusual discovery of the Chinese countryside. Fond of discovery off the beaten tracks, we trusted Lijiang Sideways during our trip to Lijiang and we did well! A super original concept to discover a breathtaking nature and culture. Go ahead, let Lijiang Sideways guide you and enjoy. Kewen the driver is interesting and fun and he... More
