TRIP TO China and South KOREA, May 21-June 3, 2017.

Most of my trip was in China, Beijing and Kunming City, and I spent only three days in South Korea. I walked up the Great Wall in Badaling. "He Who Has Never Been to the Great Wall Is Not a True Man." Two of my students and I walked up to the highest point of Badaling, Beibalou, approximately 1,015 meters (3,330 ft) above sea level. It took about one hour of tough walk (rugged path) to get to the top. I also visited Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City; I was touched to see the area of Tiananmen Square 1989 Massacre (part of the greatest massacre in modern times); it was my long-time dream to see this area because this happened around the same time I received my PhD degree in the USA. In Yunnan (capital Kunming City), I visited the Stone Forest of Shiling (I climbed up to the highest point) and the Village of Ethnic Culture (Dai, Bai, Naxi, etc.). China is perhaps the most beautiful of nearly 20 countries that I have visited in my lifetime.

TRIP TO SOUTH KOREA-PHILIPPINES-THAILAND, June 3-24, 2012.

South Korea: June 3-10, 2012; Philippines: June 10-17, 2012, June 20-24, 2012; Thailand: June 17-20, 2012. This is my third trip to South Korea, third trip to Philippines and first trip to Thailand. The highlights of my trip were my one-day vacation in Busan, South Korea, my one-day vacation at Tagaytay, Philippines, and my accommodation at the Shangri-La hotel, Bangkok (City of Angels).
