The US first lady Michelle Obama arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport on March 20, 2014, starting her seven-day trip in China. Her mother and two daughters accompany her for this week-long China visit. The first lady's China itinerary mainly focuses on education and culture. She will visit schools and many Chinese historical and cultural sites. Let's follow the first lady's step to visit China:
Arrived at Beijing and had a free afternoon. Like other international travelers, the first lady might also need some free time to overcome jet leg.
The Chinese first lady, Peng Liyuan will accompany Mrs. Obama on her visit to a high school in Beijing. They will discuss the importance of education with local students. Then the two first ladies will visit the Forbidden City
. As most visitors do, Mrs. Obama also puts the Forbidden City as her first destination in China, so we can see the charm of this royal palace. At night, the two first ladies will enjoy a private dinner along with a fantastic show.
Michelle will address the students at the Stanford Center of Peking University, talking about education and culture. After that, she will visit the Summer Palace
, another famous historical site and loved by tourists from over the world.
After conducting a round-table conference on education, Mrs. Obama will go for an excursion to the Great Wall
. The Chinese Great Wall is considered as a must-see attraction in one's life by most travelers, so the first lady will not miss it, either.
The first lady will fly to Xian, an ancient capital city with profound historical and cultural significance in China. She will pay a visit to the eighth world wonder, Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum
, and walk along the city's landmark, the old City Wall
Mrs. Obama's China trip goes on to Chengdu. She will give her second speech in China at a middle school and talk with the Chinese students. The first lady will also meet the staff at American Consulate.
Again, like other travelers, Mrs. Obama will visit the Chengdu Panda Base
and get a close touch with the lovely giant pandas. The first lady's China trip ends here and she will fly back to the USA from Chengdu.
