Suggested touring extensions
China for the visitor can be a daunting experience, it’s vast, dynamic, diverse and enthralling! With British Polo Day based in Beijing the different areas of China are easily accessible either by train or flight. For the first time visitor to China after the polo we would suggest extending your stay after Beijing and heading to Xian, home of the impressive terracotta warriors. From here you can continue to the province of Guilin and the picturesque city of Yangshuo famed for its typical rice paddy scenery and limestone peaks around the Li River. Contrast ancient China with the modern city of Shanghai, where modernity is chaotically juxtaposed with the traditional old town. If this is your second visit or you have more time on your hands you could consider visiting Chengdu, home of the giant panda or even enjoy a river cruise on the mighty Yangtze river. The hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan Hong Kong is a must for any visit to Asia and also a gateway to Southeast Asia should you wish to spread your wings further.
More on British Polo Day China - From the previous event in 2013
Welcome to the frontier of Polo!
We have always believed that the horse is an international language and represents a Bridge between cultures. We could not say it better than Mr. Xia Yang when he says, “polo is a bridge and bond that enhances the relationships among nations. In the Tang Dynasty, the most prosperous period in ancient China, the famous Silk Road ran through Eurasia. Many Arabian people travelling along the road came to China to play polo, boosting the exchange among nations. In Chinese modern times, many diplomatic relationships were built through sports. As for governments, they also hope to strengthen the ties among nations through sports and culture. Now Beijing municipal government is striving to develop culture, tourism, sports and so on to forge a ‘world city’. So, there is a good chance, through the cooperation between Beijing International Polo Open and British Polo Day, to promote the Sino-UK exchange and create more business opportunities.”
As ever, we are indebted to our partners, many of whom are of British origin, but have very strong relationships with China. We hope that these ties will strengthen as a result of the relationships developed over this weekend.
We hope you all have a great day.
The Committee of The British Polo Day
