If you plan to visit China, get ready because it is a country that will fascinate you. Not only because of its size and nature but because of its culture, its history of 3000 years of documented history and the people of this Nation.What you cannot miss in ChinaChina offers its people and tourists huge and interesting cities such as Beijing, Shanghai or Hong Kong, as well as places of great historical value such as the Great Wall, Leshan Buddha or the Warriors of Xi'an, passing through environments in which enjoy nature as in Yunnan province (to the south) or around the Li River, in Yangshuo.

We start with:

Beijing or Beijing has become a mixture of modernity and Chinese tradition. There you will find abundant skyscrapers along with some of the symbols of the purest tradition and history of the country such as the Forbidden City or the Temple of Heaven. Other places to visit are Tiananmen Square or Mao's Mausoleum where you can see his mummified body.

The Great Wall of China
It was built in pieces during 4 different dynasties, it was started by the Qin dynasty in 214 BC. After 1500 years and 3 dynasties improving it, it reached 6000 km. Thus, it can be visited in many places, the most famous being those near Beijing such as Badaling, Simatai and Jinshanling.

Some areas of Shanghai are very futuristic. The skyline of this city of 23 million inhabitants is impressive. The city is known as the financial capital of the country and although there is less Chinese tradition than in Beijing, there are still places that can give you a feeling of authenticity like the Old city neighborhood.

Hangzhou is a very big city near Shanghai that has a nice big lake in the middle. The city is interesting and can be a good stopover to spend 1 or 2 nights on the way to Shanghai.

Hong Kong
Another very modern city made of skyscrapers. The free show of The symphony of lights in which you will see all the skyscrapers of the city lighting up and changing colors while powerful lasers circle through the sky and everything accompanied by music is unique. In the surroundings of the city there are beaches and mountains that are worth a visit. The city's History Museum is one of the best you'll see.

The Mediterranean city in Asia and the eastern vegas, this is how the former Portuguese colony of Macau is known. A small metropolis that bases its economy on the huge casinos and hotels that you will find everywhere.

Xi’an is one of the oldest cities in China. It is estimated to be over 3,000 years old and was the capital of the country for over 1,000 years. It was also an important stop on the Silk Road, which brought many riches to the city. Today it has become a great metropolis where you can immerse yourself in the most traditional China. It also has a very interesting Muslim neighborhood.

Hua Shan Mountain
In China there are 5 Sacred Mountains and Hua Shan is one of them. It is a 2-3 hour bus ride from Xi’an City, and is a good destination for a one- or two-day hike up to the top. The Chinese like to go up at night to see the sunrise from above.

Chengdu panda bears
Chengdu is a city where there is not much to do but it is a good place to stop for a couple or three nights before continuing to travel around the country. As in all Chinese cities there is atmosphere at night. What I remember I really liked was the Chengdu Panda Research Base where you can admire pandas and learn about them.

Yangshuo Town and the Li River
This town a few hours from Hong Kong is one of the main destinations for backpackers. Travelers are attracted by the landscape offered by their surroundings, typically Chinese, of small and narrow mountains that protrude from the land one next to the other, formed by rock but covered with vegetation. It is a good place to relax, get to know the most small-town life in the country and do some climbing.
