The US first lady Michelle Obama has completed a seven-day visit to China, one in which the accent was on meeting young people, and in which she gained an insight into the country's historical heritage.

During the first independent trip by a US president's wife to China, Obama, traveling with her mother and two daughters, visited Beijing, Xi'an and Chengdu.

She gave two speeches on the importance of education, in Beijing and Chengdu, during the visit, which ended on March 26.
