Cruise around the streets of Ping Le Ancient Town, drop by the river, and then head out to the Chinese countryside in this video tour. A stop at the Li Family Courtyard reveals farm life in a traditional Qing Dynasty era home, and a night in a guesthouse in the middle of the bamboo sea shows a peaceful weekend getaway in rural China.

    Hey Sasha

    I am a third generation Australian of Cantonese descent ( Do check out ‘Wo de ye ye’s Tasmanian lu shi ?)

    In 2007 for three months, I studied a basic zhonggou hua course in Jin Nan, at Shandong Da Xue.

    I find your excellent video presentations of tremendous use to keeping my rudimentary Mandarin in my head !

    Please continue with your multi media observations .

    As I am sure that around our Global Villag, that many others share my sentiments,

    May peace and contentment be with you !
