One thing that cannot be charge for in the desert, the rite to write a dirty word into the side of a dune that can be seen for more than a mile. After D.T. did it, they might try to find a way to charge for that too!
There will be no limit on how many people can come to this theme park, unlike the Hong Kong Disneyland, and there is plenty to do. You can climb the dune or take a cable car to the magnificent activities on the top. You can paraglide, ride camels, take a dune jumping trip in a tank, role down a dune in an air filled ball, shoot arrows and then cap it with a slide down to the bottom where you can ride a horse back to your car. All for a small fee. You can see some of the things I did in
From the city of Baotou in Inner Mongolia, a group of friends, in town for a wedding, traveled to the Gobe desert for a day of fun. The cultural experience started even before we got on the bus. Enjoy the three minutes of sites before we get to the desert.
The Chinese have a joke, "The Chinese eat everything with legs except the table, everything that flies except a plane..." This is video of some of the strangest things I have eaten in China. Scorpions.
At the Terracotta Warrior's Freindship Restaurant there is a man making the traditional food of the Shaanxi region. Apparently, the people who usually make this noodle are bald and place the dough on their head. This man does not do that. Commentary by Lin Jiao Jiao of Beijing.
During the Spring festival, the Chinese celbrate in different ways; eating certain foods, giving money, watching CCTV 1 all night long... The Chinese also like to go and play with their friends during this holiday season, reports of the Hong Kong Disneyland being overrun and all the like fill the air. I went to the biggest park in Beijing and I must say, it was crouded. On multiple days, people called my girlfriend to go to this place and I have no ida why. 90% of the city is empty, and this place is where the remaining people went, why people would volunteer I am not sure.
At the big Bell Tower in the middle of Xi'an city they have a few small concerts everyday. This is the concert from the day we visited the tower, it was Christmas time as will become obvious in the movie. It is big, but interesting, so be patient.
For 12 long years the Chinese people have been pushed to the outskirts of their cities to celebrate their Spring Festival with fireworks. However, in response to the growing popularity of western holidays such as Christmas and Halloween within the county as well as better saftey regulations, the Chinese government allowed the people to buy and use fireworks within the cities. As a result, the newly freed masses of middle class with cash to spend flocked to the government regulated firework stands to make this year a memorable year. The opening night, and following nights were amazing, much better than the previous year. All around, without hault the sky popped, banged, sparkled and erupted with flames. I have created a five minute video that gives you a small idea of the experience of the past week.
