Mount Tai 泰山 in ShanDong province

Mount Tai is one of China's Five Sacred Mountains and has been a place of worship for at least 3,000 years.


Mount Tai (or TaiShan, though there is a city called TaiShan in GuangDong - a different place) is a mountain of both historical and cultural significance which is located north of the city of Tai'An in ShanDong province. The tallest peak is the Jade Emperor Peak which reaches a height of 1,533 meters (just over 5,000 ft).


In total, there are 22 temples, 100 ruins, 820 stone tablets, and over 1,000 cliff-face and rock inscriptions, including the Wordless Stela that stands in front of the Jade Emperor Temple. Legend tells that the emperor who commissioned the stela was dissatisfied with the planned inscription and decided to leave it blank.


It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The awesome ShenZhen city light show
With Walking Vincent ... "Tonight, I'm coming to ShenZhen's FuTian district to watch the light show. Futian is the central area of ShenZhen, where the government is located, and the city's tallest building, Ping An Finance Center, is also here. In mid-December, the weather in ShenZhen starts to get cold, so there are fewer people on the streets. Every Friday and Saturday night, there is a light show in the Civic Center Square. This is one of the viewing spots, but I heard there's an even better viewing location on a nearby hill (I will go and explore it later, so stay tuned). Well, let's enjoy this beautiful light show together. In China, ShenZhen ranks first nationwide with 185 buildings taller than 200 meters, far surpassing New York in the United States. Moreover, the economic development history of Shenzhen is only a short span of over forty years, which is truly astonishing." With Walking in the air ...
