The Yellow Dragon Boat In Beijing

You'll get to see this type of boat in many part of China. This one is taken at the Summer Palace in Beijing.

I love your yellow boat. I think I would enjoy sailing off in such a boat.

Wonderful yellows in this fascinating boat ... certainly not a familiar sight here in Southern California. Your photos contains interesting shadows too. My Mellow Yellow post is at Small Reflections and my Scenic Sunday at Sacred Ruminations this week.
Hugs and blessings,

I hope everyone enlarges this as it needs to be, to be appreciated. It's a great shot.

It is a very unusual style of boat here in the US. Thanks for showing us part of your world.

Very cool boat! And it looks like the sights to be seen from it are very interesting, too.

Hey KB,

Beautiful yellow boat!
It is a reminder of the Chinese tradition - and they should never lose it (by totally surrendering to Western culture)!

Have a great week!

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.
