China, being the 4th largest country in area in the World and the 4th most visited country by foreigners, provides so many reasons to spend time here. To mention a few, there is its incredibly diverse landscapes, its rich historical heritage with 5000 years of culture, its mouthwatering cuisine, its emergence into the modern world and its friendly people, all available on China tours. 

To understand China, it is necessary to look back at the influences of its long history. From the days of the feudal system came a united China under the first emperor to rule the complete country. This was followed by the many dynasties that ruled China up to as late as 1912 after which it became a republic followed by a Communist regime from 1949. 

About China

An interesting fact is that 50% of the country’s population lives in rural areas even though only 10% of the land is arable. China also has some of the most populated cities to be found anywhere. The official language is Mandarin although Cantonese is spoken widely in the southeast. 

Here are some other interesting facts about China. It is the oldest continuous civilization. There exist more than 50 different ethnic groups although 90% of the population is Han Chinese. China has the third largest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites after Italy and Spain. There are 5 sacred mountains associated with Taoism and 4 with Buddhism. China has only one time zone spread over the whole country. It is called the “Middle Kingdom” as the Chinese once perceived their country as the centre of the world. Ice cream and pasta originated in China and were introduced to the western world by Marco Polo. The high-speed trains which travel from Beijing to Guangzhou and Shanghai reach a speed of up to 430 kilometres/268 miles per hour. Make these part of your China vacation.

China is also known for its martial arts, the practice of Tai Chi, its calligraphy and its scroll paintings. For shoppers, important items include porcelain, antique furniture, fine arts, jade, carpets and pearls.  

It is impossible to really sum up China in words. It is far preferable to visit the country and discover for oneself. A dilemma could be where to start and what to leave out on China tour packages.
