鄭和下西洋

Welcome!

 Welcome to zhenghe.webs.com- a website that serves to inform students and anyone interested in the life, voyages (the two are barely separable), and legacy of Ancient China's most renowned explorer- Zheng He. The website is organized into sections apropos the aforementioned topics. Should you have any inquiries or comments, please feel free to leave a message on the guestbook or refer to the "Contact us" page. 

 

July 2, 2013 Update

I recently came across a highly insightful yet easy read on Zheng He entitled "The Great Explorer Cheng Ho", which is part of the History Express series. Not only is the narrative engaging, the book is also designed in a comic book style and would be a suitable learning resource for younger students studying the life and voyages of Zheng He. Here is a link to the Amazon page of the book:

 I have appropriated new anecdotal information, historical facts, and details from the book and included it onto this site.

It has been a long time since I've updated the site. I've done some polishing here and there. Let me know if there are any errors, be they grammatical or historical!
