Things To Do On Holiday in China

Apr 26, 2008
China is one of the largest countries in the world, not only is it huge, it is also one of the oldest civilisations in the world. China is a country full of a proud history that can be traced back over many centuries. It is a truly unique country as it has managed to preserve many of its proud ancient traditions along side its fast changing move to compete with the western world.

Taking a holiday to China is truly a holiday of contrasts as tourists discover some of the most densely populated cities in the world. They are then able to relax in the sparsely populated countryside and enjoy the stunning scenery.

One of the most famous structures in the world lies in China, it is the Great Wall of China. The Great Wall of China is over four thousand miles long and what is even more remarkable is the fact that it was constructed without any of today's modern building techniques. The Great Wall was originally built to protect China's northern border and keep out the warring factions that wanted to plunder this magnificent country. The wall is so large that it can be seen from space. The Great Wall of China is one of China's most popular tourist attractions and hundreds of thousands of tourists walk along it each year.

China is one of the largest countries in the world and also has one of the biggest populations in the world. Vast sprawling cities have sprung up all over China and many now have some of the largest sky scrapers in the world. Tourists visit some of these cities and are amazed at the sheer scale of them. Most have still kept their old traditional quarters and it seems strange to contrast the old style against that of the new architecture.

Hong Kong has now been handed back to China from British rule. Hong Kong started as a port and has grown into one of the largest trading ports in the world. It is probably one of the most remarkable cities in the world and is well worth a visit. Tourists love to shop here as goods can be bought very cheaply. Many tourists get hand made suits here that can be made in less than twenty four hours.

A really popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong is Victoria Peak. It is located just outside of Hong Kong and thousands of people climb up this mountain everyday. It is said that it is one of the most amazing views in Hong Kong and that the effort taken to climbing to the top is well rewarded by this spectacular view.

China is home of the Olympics in 2008 and much infrastructure has been built to cater for this event. During the Olympics many tourists will visit China to view the games and its legacy will be enjoyed for tourists of future generations to come.
