China

A visit to China, the up and coming country in the east

China is the largest country in Asia and an economy which seems to influence the whole world. Especially now with the made in china brand being known over the whole globe, many businesses are investing here. China also has a long history which makes this country worth visiting. China is big, so travelling around to see all the places that stand out to tourists will be time consuming. Its key attraction is the Great Wall, north of Beijing, which stretches for many miles and was originally built to keep the Mongolians out of China. But there is more to china and there are several cities worth while seeing such as BeijingShanghai and Hong Kong. These cities are all very modern, but if you look for a more authentic China experience try cities like Pingyao, Nanjing, Dali or Xi'an which hold many relics from the past. In these cities there are many ancient Chinese temples, which have been preserved. For a bit of nature visiting the region around Yangshuo is well recommended because of its mix of karst mountains and rice fields. If you want to hit the beach, Hainan is the place to be with its tropical climate. Getting around China is relative easy when you are travelling around the well-known tourist destinations and many hotels can get you the necessary train or bus tickets. An alternative option is to book a tour trough China from home, but this is not necessarily required. Outside these areas it definitely gets more difficult as English is not widely spoken everywhere. You will need a visa to enter China, so check with your local embassy or consulate before you plan your holiday. For a culinary experience China the food is also very good. It is well famous for all kinds of weird dishes but it also has a good kitchen.
