Journey to an enigmatic and untouched land once extolled by Venetian explorer Marco Polo as a true-life Shangri-La in this documentary that explores the one place on planet Earth where life actually appears to approach perfection. With a culture that has been virtually untouched and unspoiled for thousands of years, Yunnan remains one of the last vestiges of China's rich cultural heritage. With this release home viewers who may never be able to travel to the Middle Kingdom can finally see for themselves just what Polo witnessed firsthand when he explored Asia in the Thirteenth Century.
