I think the expedions because that made them have more silk, gold and other goods. He also made people fear china by showing how rich they were. That is why he gave away goods for free.
I agree with Victoria because people would have found China and would have just attacked but since he did this China was not attacked by people across the ocean.
I disagree because of what the next emperor of China did to shut it off from the rest of the world. Also because you can visit the forbidden city today.
I disagree because it took a bunch of skilled worked. Also the archetect was beatiful.
I think Zheng He was a greater accomplishment because it showed China's wealth and power. I believe this because without it China's advancements in Ships building would have been lowered. I also believe this because this expedition made people fear Chna
I argee with cameron because Zheng He was really smart and rich. This strenghthened china alot.
i agree with Cameron.I agree with him because he made people fear china.Also Cameron I don't know if you saw this but you forgot the I in CHINA...until then I loved you little paragraph.
I think that the building of the Forbidden city was the best achievement of the Ming dynasty because the explorations of Zheng He where amazing but became useless after the emperor died. Then the next emperor shut China off from the rest of the world. Therefore nobody ever knew of China so they were not a power any more.
I do agree with Nico that the Forbidden City of course had an impact on China, but I think that Zheng He's expeditions had a better impact at the time. I think that because they gained riches, were feared by others, and more just because of Zheng he.
You make a really good point on how The Great Wall of China shut them off from the rest of the world. I disagree on how it was useless after the emperor died. The explorations did still have an affect on China.
I think the expeditions of Zheng He was a better accomplishment of the Ming dynsaty. He showed people that China was wealthy and powerful by giving them free silk, gold, and silver so many respected and feared China.
I agree with you, Cara. Zheng He did show people that China was so wealth by giving away free silk, gold, and silver. An effect of this was so many people feared China. DO you think that if Zheng He did not give away free items, would people be intimidated by him?
I agree with you because there were so many people that feared and yet, respected China at the same time. China was so rich that they literally gave away expensive things for free, that would cost thousands today. I believe other countries feared China because of that. Also I think another reason people feared China was because of how powerful Zheng He' s army and ships were.
I agree with you, Cara. It also shows if like they were gonna attack they could be like," Oh wait, they gave me gold and respected me so I won't attack" maybe
I agree with you, because they gave out free goods to show how wealthy they are. They did this for fear and respect from other countries
I think Zheng He's exploration is the most important.I mean sereously he got 300 boats with 25000-27000 total people!Also...he brought a giraffe to his emperor,all the forbidden city did is work the skill less to death(exaggeration)and banish the common folk out even if some worked SO HARD just to carry it to point A to point B.at least I HOPE they got an award for it!
tell me if I did good.
You did a mighty fine job al and it was mean of the empore to work theme all up
I think the expedition of Zheng He was a better accomplishment then the Forbidden City. I think this because Zheng He showed how much wealth and power China had. It also made other people intimidated of China.
I agree with you Zach because the Forbiden city is just a place where people could build later on in life. Zheng He did show that China was powerful and how wealthy China was.
I think that the expeditions of Zheng He was a better accomplishment because the trips that he took showed how wealthy China was at that particular time in history. He gave away gold and other goods to other countries for free. His expeditions made people fear China. Also, how his boats were built, shipped off, and used for was very interesting.
I partially agree. Zheng He showed how wealthy China was but so did the Forbidden City. The City showed how strong the leaders were. But I do understand what you mean about Zheng He showing China´s wealth at the time.
I think zhug he was a bigger in pact cause he was not only a better explorer than Christopher Columbus and he spreaded the word of Chains wealth and power :o
I don't know either to agree or disagree. 1 WHO DOSNT WANT A BOAT THAT IS BIG ENOTH THAT YOU CAN PLAY A NICE GAME OF FOOTBALL?! but then a city like the forbidden city's size like Chicago that you can own is a big deal. SO MANY OPPTIONS!
I Think that the forbidden city was the best out of the rest. It was a Kingdom For haven sakes! WHO DOSNT WANT A CITY THAT YOU CAN GET LOST IN!? oh... wait, I know who... homie Jonathan.
I think the Forbidden city was the best accomplishment.Because it was a very huge city and it had like 3 places in the front of the main building.This is why I chose the Forbidden city.
I agree.I think it was cool because in the forbidden city it had hunderds of buildings. Also the emperor lived there.
I think the expeditions of Zheng He was more of an accomplishment because of a few reasons. One reason is because they gained riches like silk and or goods. Another reason is people feared China which was a good thing because of Zheng He.
I think that the Forbidden City was the best accomplishment because it really showed how powerful China was at the time. They had very complex building skills and architecture. The builders knew what they were doing and that is what made the City so successful.
I agree with you Jordan he also was a great Chinese explorer and fleet commander.He also went on major seven expeditions.
I think Zheng He expeditions was a better accomplishment. I think this because they sent over 25,000 men and went to other places and gave then gold silver and silk for free. They did this so the other countries would be scared because how wealthy they are and so they can have more trading routes.
I believe that the expeditions of Zheng He were a better accomplishment in the Ming Dynasty. They did not allow normal citizens to enter the Forbidden City, only the rulers and government officials. The expeditions showed other people how powerful China was. This effected all of China, including the normal citizens.
I Totaly agree with you Jenni, those are very good reasons why it was more important. I also think it was more important because they made the Ming dynasty so more powerful and enimies feared them.
I think Zheng He's expiditions were more important. I think that the expiditons of Zheng He were more important because he made China more rich and powerful. Because of this enimies feared china. The expiditions of Zheng He also helped china with ship building, although it killed so many people during the construction, it still helped china in so many ways. That is why I think The expiditions of Zheng He were more important than the Forbidden City.
I think the forbidden city was a bigger accomplishment because it took highly skilled workers to make. Plus they had three barriers you had to get through with double walls, and amazing archers. Just the size of it is what makes it amazing, it is a huge palace with a bunch of homes for the government and a barraks with a forest right next to it.
I agree that the Forbidden the best accomplishment. They had the nicest palaces and the people were really rich.
I think Zheng He's expeditions were better than the forbidden city. He showed how wealthy china is and respect to other places than china, (giving gold and other goods) and showed them to fear china.
I think the forbidden because it showed how powerful they are.Also how the leader is and the power he has.
I agree with Mel because the forbidden city and its leader showed a lot of power.
I think the Forbidden City because its self and its leader had/showed a lot of power.
I think that the expedition of Zheng He was a better accomplishment. Zheng He showed how powerful and wealthy China was. Zheng He gave people gold, silver and other goods to show how wealthy China was. Also the Forbidden City could be built any time.
I think the forbidden city was the most important acomplishment made by the Ming dynasty. Only the Emperor and the highest ranking officials were allowed there.The walls were 35 feet tall to keep the enemies out.
I think the Forbidden City was the best accomplishment of the Ming Dynasty. The palaces were big and had thousands of rooms. It showed China's glory.
