China Vacations and China Destination Information
For many, travel to China is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Situated in eastern Asia, on the western shore of the Pacific Ocean, China's continental coastline extends for about 11,200 miles and its vast sea surface is studded with more than 5,000 islands. It's truly a land of beauty with its poetic landscapes around Guilin, dramatic gorges along the Yangtze, and striking mountain scenery. Fly to Shanghai - The Paris of the East - Tour the Three Gorges Dam, walk along The Great Wall that stretches over 4,000 miles and visit one of the world's most important archaeological discoveries of the 20th century - The Terracotta Warriors. For the more adventurous, experience a rickshaw ride through the traditional Hutong areas or tour the Three Gorges Dam and cruise upstream through some of the most dramatic scenery in the world. Beyond these historical sites and great wonders, the most enduring memory is often the charm of the Chinese themselves.
