Hallstatt is a little town nestled along the coast of Lake Hallstattersee in Austria.
The hamlet is surrounded by towering mountains, with charming houses and little churches.
Hallstatt is so scenic that China has created a replica of the entire town in Guangdong. Perhaps that is the reason we saw so many Chinese tourists here, amongst the majority Caucasian tourists and a number of visitors from the Middle East.
The Chinese tourists probably wanted to visit the real McCoy after visiting the knockoff version back home.
Anyway, we had great fun strolling through the streets of Hallstatt and hiking up and down slopes upon which the houses were built.
