China is a country that many people feel quite mixed about. You either love them or you don’t. Whatever your political stance with China is shouldn’t reflect on you visiting the actual country!.
China is amazingly beautiful, vast in culture and history. It doesn’t always get painted in a pretty picture with the media but I can assure you that China has scenery that very few places in the world can rival. That alone should ignite a flame to see and explore this beautiful country. If not, then maybe one of the 5 destinations listed below will.
The Great Wall
We’ve all heard about it but not everyone gets to walk on it! There aren’t many things you can see from space that was made thousands of years ago. Fortunately, this master piece still stands today is China’s most popular tourist attractions. Tens of thousands of people visit China and walk on the great wall year round. Why not be one of them?
The Yangtze River
This is not only the longest river in one country but in the entire world! Just with that line you should feel the urge to hop on the next flight toChina, no? Well how about the fact that this river is the third largest in the world spanning for miles upon miles. The rich scenery you get to see is only rivaled by your imagination. It isn’t everyday that you get to see such panoramic views.
The Terracotta Army
This army was accidentally found by a few farmers who were digging a well for their crops. What a discovery to make! They landed on a tomb filled with hundreds of individually sculpted soldiers. All from the terracotta army. The army that united China! This piece of history is very unusual. Each and everyone of the soldiers are an exact copy of a soldier. Making each one of them different.
This is where you’ll see the money flowing The Bund is located in Shanghai, China and is one the busiest parts of country if not the world. People from around the world come here for business meetings, traveling, and sometimes they come just to see the view. Here you will see ferries shipping people around and skyscrapers with amazing Chinese architect. Plenty of western meets eastern business happens here as well. Making it a hub for some of the most recognizable brands in the world.
The Yellow Mountains
If you like to hike, or if you just want to see one of most beautiful mountain scenaries in the world than the Yellow Mountains is your next destination. 1990 is the year UNESCO made it a World Heritage Site. Thousands of visitors every year pour across from around the world to enjoy this epic scenery. Why not be one that not only sees it but climbs it too!
China isn’t the greatest country politically, but what nation is? Look past all the bad, red-tape and see China for what it truly is! A country with thousands of years of history, an economical power-house, and majestic beauty untouched by factories and pollution.
