Zheng He, the famous Chinese admiral, led seven epic voyages to more than 30 countries between 1405 and 1433. 

The famous Ming Dynasty's admiral had travelled to countries including Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Kenya.

Zheng He's seven epic voyages spanning some 28 years were monumental in Chinese history and the great maritime achievement of its time.

“The voyages were the biggest naval expeditions ever mounted at the time, gathering knowledge and wealth from Indochina and Africa for China's Ming imperial empire,” said National Geographic photographer Michael Yama-shita.
