The Qingdao-Taiyuan High-Speed Railway has a total length of 770 km. With its western terminus in Taiyuan, it passes through Shijiazhuang and Jinan to reach its eastern terminus in the coastal city of Qingdao, crossing North China in an east-west direction.

While countless Buddhist grottoes have been built throughout Chinese history, Taoist grottoes are few and far between. The Longshan Grottoes in Taiyuan are the biggest and best preserved Taoist grottoes in China.

The construction of the Great Wall of Qi began during the Spring and Autumn Period. With more than 2,600 years of history, it was built 400 years before its Qin counterpart, and is therefore known as the “Father of the Great Wall of China”.

Meanwhile, the works for Longxing Temple in Shijiazhuang commenced in the sixth year of the first Sui dynasty emperor’s reign, i.e. AD 586. An awe-inspiring masterpiece is housed in Moni Hall - the colourful wall sculpture of Guanyin, commonly known as the Sitting Guanyin, which dates back to the Song dynasty.

Lujialing Village lies 820 m above sea level. Built against the mountains, the settlement looks out onto precipitous cliffs, hence its reputation as the “Village on the Clouds”.

Chaquan was transmitted to Shandong from Xinjiang more than 400 years ago. It is now a national intangible cultural heritage. 74-year-old Gao Henglun has been practising martial arts since the age of eight. He is the fifth generation successor of Yang Style Chaquan.

Qingdao was once a German Concession during the beginning of the last century. The literati were drawn here to live and create in the Republic of China Period. Upon arrival in Yushan District, which is known as the “Path of the Literati”, you will find the former residences of Shen Congwen, Liang Shiqiu, Xiao Hong, and Wen Yiduo. Faint traces of their literary spirit can still be felt along the bluestone path they once treaded upon.

    A Westward Journey of Stonescapes and Songs

    The railroad is an important milestone which denotes the advancement of civilisation. It revolutionises a region’s development as well as people’s way of life. The first truly operational railway in China ran from Shanghai.

    In this episode, we will depart from Shanghai and travel along the Shanghai-Kunming High-Speed Railway to Jiangxi Province, where we will visit Sanqingshan UNESCO Global Geopark, admire the Danxia landforms of Guifeng (Turtle Peak), and enjoy a performance of, as well as attempt, Yiyang style singing, an intangible cultural heritage. We will then head to Guizhou Province to learn ancient papermaking techniques, stop by Xijiang Miao Village, and also marvel at the views of Shilin (Stone Forest). Lastly, we will take part in the Torch Festival of the Yi people.

    With its eastern terminus in Shanghai, the Shanghai-Kunming High-Speed Railway passes through provincial capitals such as Hangzhou, Nanchang, Changsha, and Guiyang to reach its western terminus in Kunming, Yunnan Province.

    Hong Kong by Dawn, Beijing by Dusk

    In this episode, we will travel northwards along the Beijing-Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-Speed Railway, departing from Hong Kong and passing through Wuhan and Zhengzhou to arrive in Beijing. The journey is 2,440 kilometres long and takes about nine hours. If one departs from Hong Kong in the morning, one will arrive in Beijing before dusk.

    Historians have been searching for the actual site of the Battle of Chibi (Red Cliffs) since it took place 1,800 years ago, but its precise location remains elusive to this very day. Where could it possibly be?

    Cave dwellings have been the main form of shelter in the loess-covered region of North China for more than a thousand years. In Baishe Village of Sanyuan County, more than 200 of these secret underground dwellings have been preserved to the present day.

    Zongren (bristle dolls) were toys in the Qing court which eventually spread amongst commoners. Bai Dacheng is the inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of bristle doll making in Beijing. He is also the sole remaining craftsman who has mastered all aspects of this art form.

    Zhonglou (Bell Tower) and Gulou (Drum Tower) stand as symbols of ancient imperial power in Beijing. By sounding the bell at dawn and the drums at dusk, the emperor controlled the time and daily routines of his subjects.

    Erkui (Two Strong Men) wrestling is a Manchurian custom, the skills of which used to be only passed down to males. Nonetheless, a group of rural women took it upon themselves to learn it, eventually becoming inheritors tasked with teaching the next generation.
