A Kenyan woman who used crude photoshopping skills to give herself the holiday of a lifetime has become an internet sensation.

The first hilariously bad photo, posted to Ms Gat's Facebook page, shows her on the tarmac in front of a Kenya Airways plane.

"I have left the country to China," she posted.

Later photos show her on the Great Wall of China, on the treacherous Mount Hua Shan trail, and in front of a Chinese temple.

"Woow enjoying everything here," another post says.

The photos have been liked and shared thousands of times, and other internet users have taken it upon themselves to create images of Ms Gat at other tourist spots.

The images are posted with the hashtag #WhereIsSeveGatsNow.

Her posts have even netted her a real trip to China - Kenyan entrepreneur Sam Gichuru rustled up funds from his friends to buy flights and accommodation in China.

Ms Gat this week posted a photo of her and Mr Gichuru arranging her travel.

She said she had applied for her birth certificate and passport for the trip.

"Thank you all for supporting me. Looking forward to going to China. God bless you all!"
