No thanks I am just in my sugarcane field Sugarcane from the friendly guangxi people Good morning everyone Welcome back to the channel Now I am sitting in front of my computer And planning the coming trips So today I will leave waterfall And my plan for the next 3 or 4 days Is like thisi I am right now here And I plan to drive slowly toward Chongzuo And then perhaps through longzhou county then to Pingxiang at Vietnamese border Maybe I will do a day trip Maybe not, I am not so sure yet And after that I will travel slowly to Qinzhou And in Qinzhou, I will drop my bike To save some time And I will take a bus to dongxing Again at the vietnamese border I applied for a Vietnamese e-visa So hopefully by then I will get my visa granted And then I can have a day trip in Vietnam I just to see the culture difference So I am really look forward to this one day trip That's the plan for the coming 3 or 4 days But for today I really don't have a lot of expectations Because the weather isn't so optimistic It's again quite cloudy and quite rainy But let's see Maybe there are some nice surprises on the way brother, so you're picking bananas It's not ripe yet. I see this is it, It's not ready yet Are those your banana trees This place can be compared to yangshuo And I found it's even more beautiful Than yangshuo There are very few tourists It's very quiet So I have been riding on this road for a while And in my opinion It's one most scenic road ever That' I've ridden through In china Unfortunately, the weather today isn't so good But it's just so pictureques With those karst mountains On my both sides It's just endless sugarcane And banana trees Dotted with some small beautiful villages I really hope the weather could be better But I highly recommend That you come here in summer And drive through the counties of Jingxi， longzhou, and chongzuo It's just so beautiful And I really feel that This is more beautiful than yangshuo What a nice surprise In the afternoon, the weather got better And the sun is coming out It's much easier to ride now I have never seen so much sugarcane I've just checked some information Guangxi produces the most sugar In china And Chongzuo produces The most sugar in Guangxi So in that sense It's probably the sweet city in Guangxi Those sugarcanes are maybe 3 meters Now it's the sugarcane season Nihao! So sugarcane and sugar industry Is the pillar industry in Chongzuo There are about 2.5 million people And among that 1.5 million people live on sugarcane farming

That is to say, You'll harvest everyday in this season There is no stop But if the sun is too big in a few days We'll work less Otherwise, after some work We'll find a place to rest Because of headache Now the sun is ok I see, it's easier to work without sunshine Otherwise it's too scorching After the spring festival After the 1st lunar month The sun is terrifying What are you here for? I am traveling in Guangxi traveling in Guangxi Oh, you are a tourist Where is your hometown It's in Anhui Anhui. yes That's very far Yes, It's very far Are there sugarcane there?
