Go Behind the Great Wall
Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai is your guide to the sights and sounds of ancient and modern China in this 13-minute film.
Float down the Haungpu River to Shanghai, one of China’s most modern and vibrant cities, and see historic Nanjing Road. Witness martial artistry in the gentle, fluid movements of tai chi and the agile acrobatics of the Peking Opera Company.
Scale the hauntingly beautiful Huangshan mountain range to the mythical Sea of Clouds, the inspiration of poets and painters for centuries. Then follow the Yangtze River to the water-bound city of Suzhou, dubbed “the Venice of the East” by Marco Polo.
And there’s even more to savor: watch as regional delicacies are prepared on the spot at a busy night market in Xinjiang Province, and trek across the Gobi Desert on the ancient Silk Road to Inner Mongolia, where nomadic horsemen ride free. Enter the walls of Beijing’s impossibly vast Forbidden City, and explore the craggy formations of Shilin Stone Forest.
All of this is but a taste of a country that is sometimes enchanting, often exotic—and always exciting.
