China, as many would call, the Asian powerhouse, is the world's most populous country and one of the largest countries area wise. The huge area of China encompasses almost all kinds of landscapes that can be found anywhere in the world. China is home to an exotic and intriguing culture that has thrived for hundreds of centuries. From the huge Gobi deserts to the high Himalayas; from wonderful beaches to crystal clear lakes, everything add to the tourism appeal of this truly unique country.
The gigantic country shares border with India in west, Russia in north, South China Sea on south east and East China Sea to the east.
China is slowly but surely becoming a leading tourism destination in the world. Thanks to Olympics 2008, China has seen an unbelievable surge in the number of tourists visiting its different parts of the country, some of which were not famous two years back.
China has since been able to tap the full potential of tourism here. Even though there are thousands of wonderful places to visit in China, it is not tough to pinpoint which one is the most famous of all. The Great wall of China wins hands down.
Running almost the entire length of China, Great wall of China is a product of construction of thousands of years. The Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, all are a part of a huge list of sightseeing wonders. China also boasts of a culture that is absolutely unique, original and ancient, yet developed in all its senses.
There are tens of cities that are good enough to be included in list of most happening cities in the world. Beijing, being the capital city of China, surely is one of them. There is so much to see in Beijing that no matter how much time you spend in the city, it always seems insufficient.
Then there is Shanghai, the port city, which is the largest and most populous city of China. Another gem in the crown of China is Hong Kong, one of the most visited cities in entire Asia.
