China: The Middle Kingdom

The Gate of Heavenly Purity, The Forbidden City, Beijing (1977)

New on Trips and Travelogues: ‘The Middle Kingdom: Three Journeys to China (1977, 1987 and 1989)’. Travel back in time with me for my first trip to China in 1977, when I went with the first tourist group from Ireland after the country had opened up after the ten-year Cultural Revolution. Let me bring you to the fabulous Forbidden City, the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs and the Temple of Heaven. More chapters to come soon!
