China

China
Being the most populous country, China possesses a lot of tourist attractions that may be considered as part of the world?s history. From ancient to modern country, China open and allows the world to witness its beauty and civilization. China offers everyone world class magnificent sceneries. China being the one of the largest countries by land will bring one a new world and where it will be a new view to be a paradise.

Landscape
The territory of China lies between latitudes 18 and 54 N, and longitudes 73 and 135 E. China's landscapes vary significantly across its vast width. Southern China is dominated by hills and low mountain ranges, while the central-east hosts the deltas of China's two major rivers, the Yellow River and the Yangtze River.

Religion
In mainland China, the government allows a degree of religious freedom to members of state-approved religious organizations. A precise number of religious believers is hard to obtain because of a lack of official information, but there is a general agreement that religion has been enjoying a resurrection in China since the late 1980s.

Transportation
Transportation in mainland China has undergone intense state-led development since the late 1990s. The national road network has been significantly expanded through the creation of a network of expressways, known as the National Trunk Highway System (NTHS). By the end of 2011, China's expressways had reached a total length of 85,000 km (53,000 mi).

Culture
Since ancient times, Chinese culture has been heavily influenced by Confucianism and traditional philosophies. For much of the country's dynastic period, opportunities for social development could be offered by high performance in the prestigious Imperial examinations, which were established in 605 AD to help the Emperor select skilful officials. The literary emphasis of the exams affected the general perception of cultural refinement in China, such as the belief that calligraphy and literati painting were higher forms of art than dancing or performance.

Territory
Covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometres, China is the world's second-largest country by land area, and the third- or fourth-largest by total area, depending on the definition of total area. China's landscape is vast and diverse, with forest steppes and the Gobi and Taklamakan deserts occupying the arid north and northwest near Mongolia and Central Asia, and subtropical forests being prevalent in the wetter south near Southeast Asia. The terrain of western China is rugged and elevated, with the Himalaya, Karakoram, Pamir and Tian Shan mountain ranges separating China from South and Central Asia. The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, the third- and sixth-longest in the world, have their sources in the Tibetan Plateau and continue to the densely populated eastern seaboard. China's coastline along the Pacific Ocean is 14,500 kilometres (9,000 mi) long and is bounded by the Bohai, Yellow, East and South China Seas.
