Posted in Travel and Adventure by Administrator on the December 30th, 2010

If you ask me why I like to travel to China, I would say…
The number 1 reason you will like China is its cultural experience. China is a developed country that hasn’t lost its flavor. You will experience both fast-paced city life and authentic ethnic tribe’s colorful culture. Of the 55 minority ethnic groups in China, Yunnan a southern province has the most 25 of them.
The number 2 reason you will like China is its nature landscapes. From the panoramic limestone formations in Guilin, to the gorgeous terraced rice fields in Yunnan province, to the surreal fog-covered peak in Huangshan, to China’s most famous valleys – Jiuzhaigou, the snow-capped peaks, waterfalls, forests and lakes, and many mountains, rivers and grass lands will simply take your breath away.
The number 3 reason you will like China is its long and rich history. The Great Wall, the longest wall built for defense, is over 2000 years old. The Forbidden City, the world’s largest palace complex built in traditional Chinese architecture, is also over 2000 years old. The Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses, thousands of life-size figures with individually unique faces, hair and uniforms, is grand in their elaborate design and scale.
The number 4 reason you will like China is its delicious food. There are eight authentic cuisines with regional features throughout China, which are known as Anhui Cuisine(徽菜), Canton Cuisine(粤菜), Fujian Cuisine(闽菜), Hunan Cuisine(湘菜), Jiangsu Cuisine(苏菜), Shandong Cuisine(鲁菜), Sichuan Cuisine(川菜) and Zhejiang Cuisine(浙菜). The varieties will surely satisfy your taste buds.
The number 5 reason you will like China is its top of the line accommodations. China has the most 5-star hotels in the world by my guess plus numerous boutiques hotels, B&Bs and traditional Chinese style hotels. You will easily find a place that suits your budget and style to have a good night sleep.
And of course the last but not the least, China is a safe country to visit. And the Chinese people are very friendly too.
