I spent five years living and working in China, firstly studying Mandarin and then as a magazine writer, editor and travel correspondent. I lived in Beijing for one year, Shanghai for two, returned to Beijing to work at the Olympics before spending two years based in Chengdu, south west China. Below are links to some of my China pieces (click on the pictures), which are on a variety of subjects, including culture, travel, leisure and sport:
