ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
China, the fourth largest country in the world, offers an endless variety of fulfilling and interesting attractions, including hundreds of ancient relics sites; countless museums; beautiful and interesting caves, gardens, grottos, lakes, mountains, rivers and waterfalls, as well as timeless monasteries, temples and villages.
Iineraries must include Beijing, with its over 100 cultural and scenic spots; sparkling Shanghai, the largest city; the Terra Cotta Warriors in Shaanxi province; a Yangtze River boat tour, and of course, the Great Wall of China.
When visiting here, please note that the Chinese are now aggressively enjoying personal travel and tourism to the highest levels in their history, and many of the major attractions can be crowded, with long lines. The Forbidden City is one example and hours may be spent just waiting to enter.
Regardless, in China, as an old saying goes, "Patience is a Virtue," and for those who follow that logic, they will certainly be rewarded.
