Great Wall, China

Pandas & Warriors

This was a fantastic introduction to the ‘highlights’ of this fascinating and ancient country leaving us all with life long memories. The schedule can be a bit hectic, too hectic for some possibly. There were lots of early starts and a lot of travelling, but certainly our group were really prepared to go the extra mile to fit everything in, including being first in the queue for the Terracotta Army and on the Great Wall at 4-30 am! China as we know is a rapidly changing country. The increased urbanisation and the rising affluence means that the cities are very busy and the tourist attractions are packed with ‘local’ tourists. This is something that we were not prepared for. We felt in the end that it was just part of the China experience. With our guides help, using public transport in the big cities was easy and cheap. Although beautiful and fascinating in parts, we found the Shaolin Monastery disappointing. The Kung Fu show as tacky and ‘Butlinesque’ however Shaolin had been one of the things that attracted us to the trip. In the afternoon we did visit a Kung Fu school which was much more interesting. Seeing the sheer scale of the these schools with their thousands of Bruce Lee wanabees was astonishing.
