This was a wonderful night walk along the moat on the outside of the South Wall. Traditional music softly plays and the dim lighting highlights the beauty of the lit-up wall. There's also talk of opening the boats on the moat up to tourists, which...

A little Vegas in China. The hotel has this amazing dumpling banquet and Tang Dynasty Show several times a week. The food was amazing. All of the dumplings were shaped to look like what they were filled with—little ducks for the ones filled with...
