China is a fascinating country, but with that being said, there are a few places that people should visit over some of the others. Travelers can choose the places that have the attractions that they want to see or the activities that they want to do while they are visiting this beautiful country.
Here are the best places to visit in China:
Beijing is the capital of China and it has held that position for more than seven hundred years now. Therefore, there is plenty of history to be seen when visiting. At the same time, this city has grown and become a modern destination that everyone loves. While in Beijing, everyone will want to visit the numerous palaces that can be found there as well as the Great Wall of China, the Temple of Heaven, and the Bird’s Nest. No one will want to miss seeing the Olympic Village either.
Shanghai is the largest city in China and the ambiance and atmosphere rivals that of New York City, Las Vegas, and even Paris. While in Shanghai, travelers can ride on the world’s fastest train, stop at Yu Garden, and spend some time within the World Financial Center.
The most glorious place in Hong Kong is Victoria Peak and everyone must travel to the top via the tram to see the spectacular views. Taking a ride on the Star Ferry around Victoria Harbor is also amazing, especially at night as the city lights up against the dark nighttime sky. This city also has some of the best street markets in the country and people can find some wonderful bargains on everything from clothes to food to electronics at them.
Giant pandas can be found almost everywhere in China, but Chengdu’s Giant Panda Breeding and Research Center is the best place to see them. People may want to consider interacting with the Giant Pandas while they are there, but if not, they can simply watch as these cuddly creatures play in their natural habitat.
Everyone can explore the outdoors when they are in Huangshan and it is a wonderful place to see magnificent views of the Yellow Mountains. Both Xidi and Hongcun Villages are in this area of the country and they are filled with ancient dwellings. No one will want to miss a stop at any of the hot springs in Huangshan, as it is the easiest way to relax in between adventures.
There are plenty of other places to visit in China, but these destinations should be on everyone’s must-see list when they are there.
