Genghis Khan & Kublai Khan & Marco Polo in Beijing
Polo was the first European (about 1200 AD) to describe life in China.
* Huang He (Yellow R.) and the Chang He (Yangtze R.).
* Taiwan, democratic Rep. of China
* Gobi Desert
* Pyongyang, N. Korea
* Seoul, S. Korea
* Nagasaki & Hiroshima, Japan
Another terrific movie by Zhang Yimou: Hero. It takes place during the reign of the first emperor, Shi Huang Di. Hero is quite an epic; it shows another side of a versatile director.
