We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Heritage on the verge of extinction
 
When a place in China is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is normally associated with money making, where tourists and cash are expected to flow in, and jobs created.

But Nanxijiang, a 1,000-year-old town with 27 intangible cultural heritages designated by the country and UNESCO, is an exception.

There is no trace of prosperity - only some weather-beaten houses - and not much tradition is left.

Home to 900,000, many of the town's cultural heritages are on the verge of extinction. They include Yongjia Kunqu Opera and nanquan (Southern Boxing), according to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Center of Yongjia county, the administrative body of the area.

"In the past, the area was abuzz with bread-making handicrafts and other local entertainment. But now, nobody cares," says Wang Lingxiao, vice-director of the center.

"Both the practitioners and audiences are few in numbers and old. But they are the most precious and unique cultural wealth of our nation. We need to pass it down to the next generation."

According to the latest national survey about intangible culture heritage, one-third of traditional operas that originated in Zhejiang province have died out over the past 60 years and 30 percent of traditional dances have disappeared.
