China Vacation Destinations
When considering taking a trip to China you might want to visit a few vacation destinations or choose a sweeping tour of the country. China is one of the biggest countries in the world with plenty of historical sites and beautiful sceneries that are unique to only this region of the world.
It is possible to pick one area or city in China and not see all things even in a week and in some areas, a month. Therefore it is really important when preparing your China vacation, to consider which vacation destinations you really want to visit and on the other hand what you have time for. You may prefer to keep one or two destinations in reserve if you find out you have more time that you thought before. No matter what places you select, you can be sure that your trip will be unique and mind-blowing.
One destination you might prefer to visit is Yongding. Here you can see the ring like forts of the Hakka minority. These outstanding forts housed hundreds of members of the same family name and held the ancestral chronicle that is thousand of years old intact. Not only did these forts protect the families from the wild hoards but they stood as castles and palaces that presented the wealth of a family name and the honor it was to belong to that family. It is one of the most impressive architecture that presents the domestic family ties that are superabound in China.
Yushu in the Qinghai province is one more of China's great vacation destinations. At this place Chinese culture is mixed with the Tibetan culture and you can get the best of both worlds. Even though the Chinese government has put political pressure on the Tibetans, these descendants of great warriors will welcome you into their village. You are able to shop the local markets and visit Tibetan monasteries that have adumbrated the village for a thousand years. This cultural venture will be the highlight of any China vacations.
If you would like to add a more spiritual experience to your China vacation, you shouldn't miss the town of Jianshui in the Yunnan district. This village was built during the Han dynasty and at this place you can visit the third largest Confusion temple in the country. Also you will take in a mixture of Qing and Ming dynasty architecture that will present a great impression of culture and history right before your eyes. In this area rice farming is abundant and you are able to bicycle or hike through terraced fields that you may have only seen before in your fourth grade geography book.
It doesn't matter what city, area, or province you prefer on your China vacations, all of the time friendly people will welcome you who are just as curious about you as you are of them. Through the thousands of years of history, this country and its people can provide you a journey of a lifetime and an education of a culture that has been and will be an influence to the rest of the world for another thousand years to come. If you want to be more familiar with each of the China vacation destinations listed above, you should do a little research online, and find out more information. Once you get a little sense of taste of what is offered at that place, you will be preparing your China vacation right away.
