China is one of the countries that gave birth to one of the ancient civilizations and has a history of about 5000 years! The country has been through many wars and political ups and downs through the years to become what it finally is today. Here are a few of the main attractions to check out in China.
The Great Wall
Spotted even from outer space, the Great Wall of China was amazingly built as long as 2000 years ago! It covers a massive distance of 6700 kilometres! It is one of the seven wonders of the world. Back in the day, it was built to prevent southern invaders from entering.
Located in the centre of Beijing, The Forbidden City is one that is more than 500 years old! It existed in the period of the Ming and Qing dynasties and exists today as well. The massive ancient city is surrounded by high walls and four gates with 999 rooms! Simply amazing.
This is actually the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang of the Qin dynasty who established the first centralized system in China. The story behind the tomb is quite intriguing. It is said that the tomb has been reduced to half its actual size due to erosion. The attraction is close to many Xi An China hotels. Hotels like Grand Park Xian will be able to help with how to get here.
This is actually a set of caves with beautiful murals covering about 45000 square metres. There are several coloured clay statues to see as well. It is recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural site.
