The country is rich in history and natural resources and these two reasons are the ones that can convince the traveler in you to consider China. When you decide to visit the country, don't be surprised to see a number of visitors from different parts of the world. That's because the country is known as the target vacation spots for most adventure-seeking and culturally-sensitive individuals who seek the well-documented and highly-appreciated Chinese culture.

The number of visitors that the country received and the appeal of most travel spots is validated by the fact that the tourism industry of the country is considered as the fastest-growing industry in China. For the year 2003 the number of tourists that visited the country numbered 91.66 million and the number of tourists who stayed overnight was 32.7 million. The numbers submitted by China helped propel the country into the listing of the world's top 5 in 2003.

The surge of tourist arrivals surely made the industry ecstatic and alive In fact the tourist hotel industry in Beijing and Shanghai and the rest of the country are expanding. The places to check in the country are the more than 15,000 natural, cultural and other man-made tourist attractions. But of course visiting all these scenic spots in the country is next to impossible. What the visitor can do is to visit the top sites that match his fancy. If the visitor is into shopping, then a check of the many spots considered a shopping heaven is a must. And speaking of China shopping, the country was called the shopper's paradise in the 19th century.

The country is known for many products but what captured the fancy and the imagination of shoppers and visitors are the silk products, tea and wine. The silk coming from the country is top rated and the teas from the country come in many varieties as well. Other than tea, wines and the well-regarded silk, the country is also known for their souvenir items and the antique items that date back hundreds of years ago.

Other noteworthy products to check out if the visitor may want to do some shopping include the porcelain from Jingdezhen, the embroidery products of Suzhou, Hunan and Sichhuan and the batik of Guizhou. If the visitor is the type of person who likes antiques, then nothing to worry though as a number of antique shops and stalls dot the cities. The key in order to get what you want and to get it at cheaper prices is to do some bargaining and show off your bargaining skills. A visit to the country will not be complete without checking the other cultural heritage and of course the cuisine. If the visitor happens to taste the cuisine, then the visitor got a taste of China living. There are a thousand things that can be done in China; travel and see for yourself.
