INNER MONGOLIA TRIP: DAY 6: ULANSUHAI NUR

Lake Ulansuhai is one of eight fresh water lake in China. Within a brief period of 60 years, this “pearl” wetland has shrunk to a quarter of its original size, and stands at 293 sq miles in 2010, and will probably disappear from earth in 10-20 years in expert opinions. Agricultural pollution, human and animal wastes and salinization by desert storms are the main causes. Frankly, I felt guilty visiting this place, and it should be banned to all tourism. The Chinese government has problem in overcoming the problem and need to get international help.

We have our lunch here – all fish dishes, can’t complain about the fish, only the cooking.

    Thanks for sharing your great trip, a great pictorial tour.
    Its a pity about the Ulansuahai and its gradual demise.
    I love all the appertising pictures of the foods you encounter
    I doubt there is any where in Australia we could get to taste these tantalising dishes.
    Regards

      Emu, There are a lot of good restaurants in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth offering good cuisine. Look at your Wine & Dine magazine. I recalled we had good seafood in one of the pubs in Perth city, the Heritage building.However, your wine and beer are cheap and good.
