The East is Red

TaiShan Sunrise


Welcome to TaiShan, home of the most famous sunrise in all of China.  It was here that Mao Zedong so famously declared that “the East is Red” so long ago.  Emperors throughout the ages climbed Mount Tai to sacrifice at the temple and watch sunrise from the peak.


Yea, I dont get it either.  It was nice, but not lifechanging.  Check out China’s Huangshan or Sri Lanka’s Adam’s Peak sunrise instead.
