On our way back from the wall we ended up visiting this site of the Ming tombs. We might have settled on the wrong one but were just not impressed. We expected a similar experience as visiting the graves in Luxor but well, nothing like...More
We visited the underground palace and the Sacred Way following a trip to Mutianyu, and, whilst the site was impressive and certainly an important stop off, the lack of signage and information in the epicentre of the site (the actual underground section), was a tad...More
