WITH a booming population, tricky language barrier, and fast-paced lifestyle, China can be exhausting for first time travellers.
I was one of those first time travellers as I joined a delegation comprising two government officials and five media officials for a cultural trip organised by the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Brunei Darussalam.
During the visit from November 10 to 18, we were taken to various places of interest in Suzhou and Nanjing in the Jiangsu province – from cultural heritage sites to modern economic areas.
A country with more than a billion people, China with its economic upturn mixes its various cultures with the steady progress of technology seamlessly.
Upon arrival at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport, we were greeted by Jerry and Xing, officials from the government of the People’s Republic of China who accompanied us throughout the trip.

The Communist Party’s emerging empire is more the result of force than a gravitational pull of Chinese ideas.

Jan. 5, 2018I am the son of two empires, the United States and China. I was born in and raised around Washington in the Nixon-to-Reagan era, but my parents grew up in villages in southern China. My father was a member of the People’s Liberation Army in the 1950s, the first decade of Communist rule, before he soured on the revolution and left for Hong Kong.
So it was with excitement that I landed in Beijing in April 2008 to start an assignment with The New York Times that stretched to almost a decade. I had just spent nearly four years reporting on the bloody failure of the American imperial project in Iraq, and now I was in the metropole that was building a new world order.
China had entered a honeymoon phase with other nations. For years, anticipation had built for the 2008 Summ..

Benefiting from his in-depth study of modern management ideas and China's traditional cultures, Mr. Xiao assembled a collection of bes..
