Travelling Writer: Why You Should Visit China
Writer’s Journey: 6 Reasons to Visit China
China is a true shining gem of Asia. Its huge territory is nearly equal in size to that of the USA. The Chinese population is the largest in the world. Here are 6 reasons why every student should buy essays online to get some additional free time and use it to visit this unique, beautiful country.
Reason 1: Zhangjiajie National Forest Park
If to believe local legends, a famous Hollywood director James Cameron came up with the setting of his “Avatar” fantastic movie after his visit to these places. Summits of mountain peaks with their bottom parts hidden in fogs look like islands flying over the skies. The unnatural beauty of this place just stuns human imagination.
You won’t make it through this place without a map. There are nearly 10 stairways taking from 1 to 6 hours to get on top of them. There is a fast elevator that can deliver you to a height of nearly 1.5 km ($70). But then, you’ll need to walk on foot through relatively plain landscapes from 2 to 3 hours. At the summit, there function free busses moving through 4 main routes. There are also hotels where tourists can (and should) spend the night because the excursion through the main points of the park will take at least 2 days.
In my opinion, this park is one of the most beautiful places on our planet. It does not matter if the weather is rainy, foggy, or sunny: in any case, one can see wonderful landscapes. They can fascinate your soul and you’ll memorize them forever.
The cost of the visit: nearly $100 for three days.
Reason 2: The Great Wall of China
One of the “New 7 Wonders of the World” created by human hands. The wall seems to always run beyond the horizon, as there are no human-built objects equally long. Experienced tourists consider the Mutianyu part to be the most beautiful. There are many plants growing around the wall and minimum tourists.
The atmosphere of this place just can’t be described in words: you can literally touch human history as you walk along with it. Students will definitely write the best description of nature texts after visiting the Great Wall of China.
Reason 3: Shanghai Markets
Well, actually, all of Shanghai is wonderful. But markets gave me most impressions for some reason. Here, you can make your trading skills razor-sharp and get greatly excited about performing this activity while receiving a good-quality item as a bonus. Chinese things have a low-quality reputation around the world, and after visiting Shanghai, I came to think that’s unfair: their wool, silk, cotton clothes, and other items are much better than top branded products somewhere in European boutiques. I’ve met some confusing accidents: for instance, the faked “Abercrombie & Fitch” sportswear was better than the original American clothes of this brand!
Reason 4: Chinese Food and Tea
Despite many wheat products (noodles, dumplings, etc.), Chinese people are mainly thin. Maybe this is their national feature or they have special flour (mainly made of rice), but any noodles spiced with the traditional sauce just melts in your mouth! The whole Chinese cuisine has sour-sweet taste slightly spiced with pepper.
Beijing duck is a national dish that is cooked in 10 different ways just in Beijing. Things depend on the chef and the main sauce here.
I never used to like green tea. But what could I know about Chinese sorts before visiting China? Hundreds of them are for tourists to taste in local tea shops. There are actually more points with hot water than those with bottled ones in China.
Reason 5: Karst Hills
If you watched the movie titled “The Painted Veil” with Edward Norton, remind yourself of those landscapes. Along the banks of the Li River, there stand hills of different sizes, both lonely and grouped. They seem to be quite usual, but that feeling of being surrounded by hills all the time is just fascinating!
This place is the national treasure. On the banknote of 20 yuan, there is a picture of local landscapes.
Reason 6: Hong Kong
This is the Chinese New York - the city that never sleeps. This is a place of contrasts where you can easily find a feng shui relaxation garden among hi-tech skyscrapers. The well-known harbor between the island and the continent parts of the city is marvelously lighted at night, creating the fascinating urban landscape view. This city has its fashion and its separate world different from that of China which is full of calmness and prudence. After you visit this unique Asian anthill at least once, all other megacities of the world will look not that fast to you.
So, to summarize my impressions, I’d like to say one thing. I’ve visited many countries, and China is the very first place where I could stay to live. There is a comfortable climate, friendly people, tasty and healthy food, affordable living prices, and an unobtrusive positive religion.
