Travel: What it’s like to visit China – National Costumes and Uniforms of China

This is part of my Travel Series.

Not much to talk about here, just wanted to show some of the uniforms they have and national costumes in China.

At the Great Wall of China (Badaling), I caught this wonderful photo of two older women dressed in their native costumes:


And at Tianamen Square, different natives of China, tribes I suppose, with beautifully embroidered headdresses.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I had the opportunity to go to China years ago and it was a great experience. Due to the trip being an organized trip by an agency I didn’t get to venture out like I would have liked too. My dream is to go back and see the Great Wall of China. Thank you for the mini journey via pictures.

      In hindsight the tourist tour is a good idea but then they control what you see. We didn’t want a polished look, we wanted to actually see the real China. 🙂

      You’re welcome
