2017 Trip review: What a fantastic time in China, a well organised trip by Master Tary Yip. The group was well looked after by Tary and his guide. There was professional instruction on Tai Chi and Chi Gung by Master Tary Yip plus some really interesting tours to ancient Chinese sites "The Great Wall" - "Forbidden City" plus more up to date visits like the fantastic Teracotta Warrior exhibition.

The Gade museum was jaw dropping, the amount of exhibits on show and for sale was incredible. I absolutely loved the Wudang Mountain trip the scenery is breathtaking, and top level Wudang Tai Chi training by Taoist Monks.

The Chinese infrastructure i.e. road and rail is amazing. Not one pot hole even high up in the Wudang Mountains. Also I could get a full five bars on my mobile anywhere I went again even in the mountains, calls were crystal clear to back home in the UK. I found that I had no problems either with the WiFi access in the hotels, so emails were easy to send and receive.

There is so much more to mention, so if you are thinking of going in 2019 and want more information please ask David or check Deyin website.
