Movie Reviews

Discover China via an informative DVD
Isaac Ho | Canada | 02/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of late, the world is paying increasing attention to China (Middle Kingdom) because it is just a place to travel and experience the Chinese hospitality and the mouth-watering cuisines.
So what better idea than before the actual visit to China as a tourist is to get hold of a informative DVD and familiarize oneself of what one is expected to see and enjoy prior to hopping into a plane and fly to this wonderful land of the mystifying Orient.
I have gone through the whole series of DVDs on sale at and I am inclined to feel that this is perhaps one of the best discs to watch.
This DVD covers are very wide range of subject matter and should be of immense interest to either an armchair traveller (like myself at the moment) or contemplating of becoming a potential tourist to China.
China has changed a great deal since your last visit and the changes would be startling if you intend to pay the next visit to places of interest and be brave enough to sample the thousands upon thousands of food dishes offered.
Forget about the well-trodden paths by the usual tourists, don't join any tour group and boldly venture out on your own as you go to China.
So I highly recommend this DVD about China to potential travellers as it covers lots of tourist grounds and with 100 minutes of documentary subjects to offer, it should not only be a good bargain but also a journey into superpower China today...!
Cheers & thanks.
Happy Chinese New Year of the Golden Hog 2007, too!"

"This video is dated. China changes every few years. I visited in 1997 and then in 2008 and the country and its people were remarkably different so I would buy a more recent video."
