Intro into China

China is the world’s most populous country and it’s also one of the oldest civilizations. When most people think of China they think of the Great Wall, but this country has many more fantastic sites like the Forbidden Palace, which only opened its doors to Western world in 20th century. Also, arguably the archaeological finds of the 20th century is the world famous Terracotta Army, which was founded in 1974.

Since hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics, China is fast becoming a popular tourist destination. Unfortunately, China is changing rapidly, so it’s hard to see the real China unless you get outside the major cities. The country has over 20 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and if you are looking for a fascinating and historic vacation then China should be at the top of your list for your next holiday.
