About China

Much about China evades descriptors. From its ancient dynasties to the years it spent closed off from much of the world, this country is fascinating. With 14 neighbors, China borders more countries than anywhere else in the world. Its extent comes as no surprise when the sheer geographical expanse of the land is considered – from its east coast on the Pacific Ocean to the arid landscapes of Inner Mongolia and beyond, to the beautiful Himalayas with sweeping gorges. It is a land of extremes, with many cities boasting a population of over two million – a number that is only growing.
