China, the most populous country in the world, is home to countless wonders of nature and tourist attractions. But due to the rapid Western modernization, some parts of the country’s rich past are being dismantled piece by piece.
There are various reasons why international tourists include China in their travel itineraries. For one, those who like art and technology can stand in awe at the ingenious architectural developments, the country’s art districts and cranes hovering above the city’s skyline. People who like history can revisit China’s ancient civilizations through museums, landmarks, the Great Wall of China, and the Terracotta Warriors.
Adrenaline junkies also have a place in China. They can visit the Taklamakan Desert, or go cave-hunting. Moreover, those who want to find peace or seek solace from the environment can do so while exploring nature parks and going around temples.
Undoubtedly, China offers everything. Here are some other reasons why China should be your next destination.
– Rich Culture and Heritage
In terms of language, China has the most authentic and the most elaborate. As a matter of fact, it somehow shaped the Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese languages. China’s history, if not the world’s most extensive, is longer than ours. It spans for more than 4,000 years and is evident on their calligraphies, tea culture and poetry.
– Delicious Food
Chinese cuisines and street food are among the tastiest in the world. This being said, first time travelers should know that authentic Chinese food might be different from the Chinese food in our homeland. Every province in China has their own distinct dishes and unique flavors. For instance, Beijing is proud of its duck restaurants, while the Hunan province is known for its hot and spicy food.
– Huge and Varied Environment
Since China is one of the biggest countries in the world (in terms of land mass), there is something to be enjoyed for everyone. You can hike, cruise some rivers, trek through the woods and visit villages in the countryside.
Many tourists, both local and international, have attested to the beauty and wonders of China. However, you can’t enjoy everything China has to offer in just one trip. Nevertheless, China should definitely your next itinerary. As a Chinese proverb puts it, “Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.”
