To complete the visit, they were photographed on stage with the performers.

In the afternoon, the coaches travelled to a small community on the grasslands of Inner Mongolia to be welcomed by a band of local folk musicians. They were then blessed by the resident shaman before watching a show of Mongolian wrestling. Miss World 2009 Kaiane Aldorino presented the winning wrestler with his prize. Their visit closed with a thrilling display of horse skills by local performers.
