Unearthing China through its Cities
Very clearly, to most people in the world, the power factor of the world is shifting to the east. China is fast becoming a super power on its own right and of the many industries that contribute to this growth; tourism is one of the main contributors. It is the fifth largest tourist country presently and will become the largest by 2020.
Unearthing China is like experiencing a melting pot of culture, history, and natural beauty. It has something to offer to everybody, from the mountain climbing adrenaline junkie to the lighthearted foodie on an epicurean expedition.
Shanghai- One of the most popular tourist hotspots in the world; the city is one that must be visited to experience the economic growth of China first-hand. This iconic city is filled with towering skyscrapers, shopping centers filled with international brands, intercontinental restaurants, business centers and every kind of modernity known to the developed world. Shanghai has come a long way from what it was in the erstwhile years. With time, it has flourished as a business centre of international repute in the world.
Chengdu- The ancient historical city of Chengdu, on the other hand, the capital of the Sichuan province, is the cultural hub of the country. When you are here, remember the Italian phrase, “L’arte di non fare niente” (The art of doing nothing). This is because the people in this city are very laid back.
The capital city- Unearthing China cannot be complete without a visit to Beijing, the capital of China. It is a throbbing modern city of today that has artfully preserved all of its rich history together with its modernity. From the maze like courtyards of the Forbidden City to the Temple Of Heaven, to the energetic multi-lane highways basking in post-Olympic delights; Beijing has it all. The real attraction is however, removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Great Wall of China lies in all its grandeur, to the north of the city, snaking its way on the hills.
The rarer delights
The historical city of Xi’an boasts of the famous archaeological marvel, the terracotta soldiers of Qin Shi Huang. In Xi’an, one can also see The Shaanxi Museum, The Bampa Museum, the Big Goose Pagoda, and so on.
Away from the bustling cities, one has the serene scenic beauty of China. The most important river of China is the Yangtze-kiang or the Yellow River. A section of this river, a 192 Km stretch is called The Three Gorges of Yangtze River. Each of these Qutang, Wu and Xiling gorges has their own unique appeal. This is a site of unparalleled beauty – a geographical spectacle that seems to glorify its own existence.
These cities, among more, will assuredly leave you feeling enthusiastic for another visit to the wonderful country of China. In case you are planning a trip to China, then these cities must be on your list of must visit places in the country that is one of the most famous in contemporary times.
