Unfettered freedom with the Unimog long-distance tourer.
Splashes of yellow and red flicker in the dusty dry desert air. They appear from the middle of nowhere as the Unimog turns the corner, brightly coloured tents and flags belonging to the camp of the twelfth Unimog Off-road Tour in China’s Alashan Desert. The camp is on the route of Liu Bin and other members of the Unimog Club China. And is the highlight of their a month-long off-road adventure through the Middle Kingdom.
It's a Unimog thing.
Liu Bin is a big fan. A real Unimog man. So much so that he even travelled specially to Germany once to collect a wooden model Unimog, an accurate replica down to the last detail. Naturally, he also owns a full-size Unimog – a long-distance tourer. Liu Bin, also known as Benson Liu, was in fact the first private individual in China to own the off-road mobile home from Mercedes-Benz.
