Chinese Acrobats in Beijing
If you visit China there are so many things to see and do. One of the entertainments that we unexpectedly enjoyed was the extraordinary performance of the Chinese Acrobats. Any hotel you stay at can arrange for you to see a nightly show. You will be surprised by the dexterity and nimbleness of these performers who will take your breath away with their acrobatic stunts. After you've spent a full day sight-seeing it's wonderful to be able to sit back, relax and take in this marvelous show.

Indoor Skiing in Dubai
Yes, you read it correctly. If you've never been to the Middle East and you're looking for a place to start, Dubai may be just the place. Known for its shiny skyscrapers and wealthy visitors it's really so much more. If you love shopping this is definitely the place for you! Because it's typically very hot in Dubai, most activities are inside and most are in large shopping malls. Now, we're talking really, reallly, really large malls - upwards to 400 stores in one single mall. The Mall of the Emirates is so big that it even has an indoor ski resort - Ski Dubai. But that's not all that makes Dubai a great destination. The history, the old market district with "souqs" or shops include gold, spice and carpet souqs are also worth putting on your to-do list. It's a great place to hone your negotiating skills. And of course the food is simply delicious, from 5 star restaurants featuring the world's best chefs to an outpost of the New York classic burger joint the Shake Shack, there's something for every palate in the Mall of the Emirates.
