DVD and VHS
Starting in Beijing, witness the massive
rebuilding of the entire city in preparation for the 2008
Olympics. You'll see the old hutongs via pedicabs. Visit
Tiananmen Square on the eve of the 15 year anniversary of
the 1989 uprising or harken back and experience the life
of a concubine in the Forbidden City. Walk along the longest
corridor in the world at the Summer Palace.
In Shanghai, walk along The Bund, the
river front area. Sense the peace of spectators watching
other revelers dancing, singing and playing native instruments
near an ancient tea house and garden.
The Yangtze River, one of the most famous
waterways in the world. Travel from the western plains through
the absolutely massive Three-Gorges Dam and up through the
beautiful and haunting Three-Gorges. Culture abounds here
from gongs along the river to historic hanging coffins along
Xian - the locale of the Terra-Cotta Warriors.
Acres of clay warriors, some restored and others still in
the state they were found in after being destroyed by marauders.
A rare sight to behold even tops this - a glimpse into the
life of the man who found the warriors - he cannot even
afford to visit the museum as he received no financial reward
so he now signs books in the museum shop.
See local artists work on their wares, such as cloisonne, and smile
at the kids in school singing and laughing. Also, visit with bears and
pandas in their home country.
After visiting the breathtaking
landscape in Guilin, travel to world-class Hong Kong. From architecture
designed by I. M. Pei to beaches to Kowloon's own medicine shop
selling Snake Penis Capsules.
This video is broken into 2 parts - Part one shows the beauty and mystery
of China. It is broken up into sections on Culture, the Cities, the
People, Scenery, and the Yangtze River. The second part, available on
the same tape/DVD, contains all the special bits of the Green and Yellow
GCT gang... A 'behind the scenes' view of our fun times together including
highlights of the talent night on the Yangtze cruise boat. Each section
is about 15 minutes long - enough to be entertained but not so long
you(or your friends) wish it was over already!

The DVD that will be used for this are DVD-R's. This
is a cool new recordable DVD technology that is playable on most DVD
players and DVD-ROM drives in computers, but as it is a new technology,
it doesn't play 100% everywhere. If you order the DVD, there is a small
chance it won't work on your gear. Let me know at that point and we
will work something out with a VHS tape. Or, go to the local stereo
store with this China DVD and buy a new DVD player that plays the DVD,
DVD players are cheap now! Also, you can check the compatibility
list to see if your player is listed. Ask me if you have questions.
