||This Pilot Guides episode features the city of Beijing, capital of the People's Republic of China and a promised land of potential prosperity for the Chinese people. The trip begins in Tiananmen Square, former stage of Cultural Revolution rallies where soldiers run morning drills, then moves on to the Forbidden City, a cluster of ancient buildings off limits for 500 years during the Ming and Qiung dynasty. Watch the explorers climb to the roof of the Ancient Observatory, sample Mao's revolutionary cooking prepared by his townsfolk, admire the gardens and frescoes of the Lama Temple, and join the revelers of the Lantern Festival. Finally, the video takes viewers to the Longquin Gorge, a canyon in Yanquin County, for Beijing's Ice Lantern Festival.
