2008-12-28 Dai Wedding in the Internet Age
    2008-12-27 16:11:59     CRIENGLISH.com
Hello and welcome to another edition of China Horizons, the weekly feature program brought to you by China Radio International. I'm your host Du Lijun.

In this edition, well listen to some Christmas music played by the famous Twelve Girls Band.

Then we'll join a wedding ceremony of the Dai ethnic group in a small village in the border between China and Vietnam.

And finally in our travel segment 'On the Road', well take a trip to Jilin in the central part of northeast China and have fun ice fishing and skiing.

For all this and more, stay tuned to China Horizons on 'China Radio International'.

  • Christmas Music by Twelve Girls Band
    Christmas is celebrated around the world, throughout the Christian population, and also by many non-Christians as a secular, cultural festival. In today's program, we'll listen to some Christmas music played by the famous Twelve Girls Band.

  • Dai Wedding in the Internet Age
    Today our reporter Wu Jia will take us to a small village bordering Vietnam, and join a wedding ceremony of the Dai ethnic group and send our best wishes to the new couple.

  • Good Fun in Cold Weather
    Winter is the best time to enjoy the snow covered landscapes in northeast China. The tourist season begins when land and rivers are covered with snow to welcome ice fanatics. If you are planning your winter vacation and wondering where to go, then Jinlin Province in the central part of northeast China is a good choice.

Thank you Ning Yan.
