Three great campsites to try this summer

This campsite is on an excellent beach and has its own surfing school with special prices for campers. You can also learn to windsurf and sail there. The sea is safe for swimming, so it's a great place for families. The large swimming pool is great in summer and has a wide area of grass around it. Its small supermarket has long opening hours.

The Chinese State Circus

You can see excellent martial arts such as Kung Fu. You can see people juggling, people dancing in lion costumes and even Chinese ballet and opera. It's a traditional show, but the technology of the lights and the special effects is amazing.

Acrobatics has been an important part of Chinese history for a very long time. We know this because there are paintings of acrobats on old pots and plates. Some of these pots are more than two thousand years old. The Chinese State Circus began in the 1990s. This was when a director called Phillip Gandey saw a group of Chinese acrobats performing. He loved what they were doing and decided to create the circus. The circus has performed in theatres in more than a hundred different countries since then.

The Shaolin Warriors are a famous part of the show. They perform at different times, before and after the acrobats. They are very strong and can break wood and bricks with their hands and feet. This is a kind of martial art. In most circuses, clowns come on between the acts. In the Chinese State Circus, the Monkey King appears. The Monkey King is a character from a Chinese story. In the story, he has magic powers and can control the wind and water. During the circus he makes everybody laugh. He sometimes asks people watching to come onto the stage.
