Memorable parts? Visiting the Big Wild Goose Pagoda in Xi'an and seeing the amazing jade carvings and Buddha statue. Tips?

I felt like this benefited the local people, though I don't think it specifically reduced environmental impact. Overall rating? Amazing experience, one of the... (more)Owen Cawley
