China. Mysterious. Intriguing. Yet beautiful and haunting in its own way. Home to many kingdoms, philosophies, ancient wisdom and a history since time immemorial. A cuisine that has conquered the world… And… Kung Fu…

This tour covers Beijing, the Great Wall, Forbidden City, the Forest of Peonies, Shaolin Temple, Longmen’s Grotto and the Terracotta Warriors… But for me this is all about Shaolin and Terracotta Warriors… 🙂
