The series is shot on location in Dali and Shangri-la of Yunnan province.  I don’t know if that moon is PS’ed in here, but it’s pretty.

Chen Xiao and Jing Tian’s road-trip suspense romance Finding Love on the Journey will be airing soon, so here’s the first trailer out to get you excited. If anything, it’s definitely the first of its genre that I’ve heard of.

On their road trip to Shangri-la, they become entangled in the local crime scene and an international drug smuggling corporation.  [Extended Synopsis]
