    China is the next country we visit, what do you like to do when visiting, where do you like having your photos taken, nice places to eat. Is there anything you like or dislike about China?

    Oh well the skips will pay a short visit, but we usually just pass by without stopping. Not one of our favorites and would rather spend time at other pavilions

    Not on our list of favorites either. We did love watching the acrobats however. We may have eaten at Nine Dragons but I don't remember. I only recall seeing the film once and wasn't impressed I guess because I don't think I've been back.

    I love going into the big shop and looking around. I usually end up buying something. I HAVE to rub the giant Buddha's belly. We will oftentimes get a snack of egg rolls.

    Ok so this photo was taken after having a few drinks and I am not sure if this was in China or Japan but the robe sure looks better on the mannequin than it does on me .....

    film makes me sick too but we do always have at least one meal at the nine dragons. It's not SUPERB but it's "ok"

    Not much else in the pavilion but we always buy a chinese calendar in december ready for new year

    you big wusses! :lol: I don't like rides and don't get sick- go figure! I love the mango iced tea, you can get it with a snack credit. Have never tried the Chinese as i feel i can get that at home and it hasn't had very good reviews.

    I love the China pavilion! It's probably my favourite. The outside is beautiful, both to walk around and to sit and relax in.

    This is the bamboo garden. It may only be there during the F&GF.

    The Terracotta Army is amazing and always fascinates me.

    The shop is an Aladdin's cave of treasures. I always spend a lot of money there! I have bought handbags, crockery, books, pictures, candles, fans, parasols, buddhas and many dragons. Wonderful! :applaudit:
    The restaurant food is plentiful and of a good quality. The service is usually excellent.
    We really enjoy the film, I find that if I stand centrally and just gaze ahead it doesn't make me queasy. :)

    This is the amazing ceiling inside the cinema building.

    Diane, thanks so much for sharing your photos! I've never seen the bamboo garden, but I will definitely look for it next time. I saw the Terracotta Army for the first time on our last trip, and I was amazed. Utterly stunning.
