[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

"Hubei province in subtropical central China is the Land of Legends, dating back to the 7th Century BC, when it was home to the powerful state of Chu. Beautiful and majestic Hubei has been the production location for numerous world-wide blockbusters such as "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon," Jackie Chan's "Karate Kid," "Red Cliff" and more. The epic history of Hubei also includes the heartbreaking tale of Mulan, the young courageous woman immortalized in the Disney hit movie.


Today, Hubei is home to the Three Gorges Dam the largest Hydro Electric Plant in the world. This marvel of innovative engineering controls the raging torrents of the mighty Yangtze River, the bloodline of 5000 years of Chinese culture. Hubei is a Hi-Tech center, but its rich history is always present.


Time honored traditions prevail in sacred Buddhist monasteries and on the Holy Mountain of Taoism, which inspires the faithful with this eternal mantra of Lao Tzu: 'Nature has its way and everything has a place where it belongs. Those who tamper with nature will harm it and lose it!'" --  http://www.monarex.com
