With the group we visited the Great Wall of China which is very impressive, the walls aren’t particularly high but they do stretch for 6000 Kilometres! Needless to say we didn't walk all of it and we also cheated by getting a cable car to the top and back.
That evening we went to a show called the Kungfu Legend which portrayed the journey a young boy made in a monastery of ...
