China Sightseeing

China, a sovereign state located in East Asia, is the prime sightseeing spot for any curious traveller, no matter the age; after all, China is the second-largest country by land area, so it can easily boast something for everybody.

With a vast and diverse landscape that ranges from forest steppes and the Gobi and Taklamakan deserts in the north, to subtropical forests in the south, China (officially, the People’s Republic of China) is a fascinating place for sightseeing enthusiasts. Adventure-goers will enjoy a sightseeing experience like no other on the Himalaya, Karakoram, Pamir and Tian Shan mountain ranges that separate China from South and Central Asia, while animals-lovers will relish the country’s wildlife that includes pandas, monkeys, and tigers.

Mountains and wildlife aside, China is a stellar location for sightseeing because it is home to the third- and sixth-longest rivers in the world (the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, respectively), mysterious caves (like one in Zhoukoudian near Beijing that exhibits hominid fossils that date back between 680,000 and 780,000 BCE!), the world’s highest point (the peak of Mount Everest), the world’s third-lowest point (the dried lake bed of Ayding Lake), and over 34,687 species of animals and vascular plants, a number that makes it the third most biodiverse country in the world! All in all, China is a sightseer’s paradise.

Sightseeing guides in China will share the ins and outs of the country with you. While they speak good English, there are as many as 292 living languages in the country! They will share the likes of why exactly the republic is heavily influenced by Confucianism and conservative philosophies. China’s sightseeing tour guides will also give you the lowdown on the country’s literary emphasis (since ancient times, they have believed that writing and painting are superior to dance and drama), why the Chinese are so passionate about an inward-looking national perspective, and why so much energy is put toward examinations and merit.

China Sightseeing Continued...

For a country whose staple food is rice, it’s surprising that the culture is incredibly rich and dynamic, but this is what makes China a gem for sightseeing enthusiasts: China is a country full of surprises that you just shouldn’t miss out on. For example, did you know that China has one of the oldest sporting cultures in the world? No? Well, the country’s sightseeing guides will tell you that there is evidence that archery was practiced during the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046–771 BC), and that swordplay and a form of football also date back to China’s earliest dynasties.

Don’t wait a moment longer to sightsee China, and when you do, be sure to go beyond the cities and into the heart of the countryside where you can marvel at homes built without nails, as well as the country’s famous wind and rain bridges. Whether it be by bike, foot, or even bamboo raft, sightseeing guides in China are eagerly waiting to show you around their vast (and vastly intriguing) country. Keep them posted no longer; book your adventure now!
