The representatives of the officers and men of the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) on the "Harmonious Mission – the 'Zheng He' ship's round-the-world voyage" as well as 100-plus intern cadets of the Dalian Naval Academy of the PLA Navy made a special trip to the 'Zheng He' Heritage Memorial Gallery of the Malacca Historical Museum of Malaysia at 11:20 on May 1, 2012 to cherish the memories of the great achievements of the great maritime pioneer and messenger of peace and friendship.

  "Zheng He is a personage of celebrity in Southeast Asia, and there are a great number of visitors coming here," Yang Junxing, guide of the'Zheng He'Heritage Memorial Gallery, said to the reporter. Since the establishment of the memorial gallery on January 10, 2004, the number of visitors has increased by 10 percent each year, and has now exceeded a total of 100,000.

  During the visit, the cadets were filled with emotions. "Under such primitive circumstances, Zheng He was able to lead the largest fleet in the world at that time, and spread his friendship to over 30 countries and regions in his seven expeditions. Today, we are sailing the 'Zheng He' ship to keep track of the historical voyage of Zheng He's seven expeditions in order to enhance friendly exchanges between the Chinese Navy and the navies of the world, build a harmonious ocean together, and write down a new chapter of military diplomacy for the Chinese Navy."
