Total Articles: 400
When you travel to China, you don’t just hang around at Chinese skyscrapers or indulge in local restaurants of Shanghai or Beijing. Tourists get out of urban modern space and explore the nation’s pride – the historical monuments and cultural landmarks.
Forbidden City, the Chinese Imperial Palace of Ming Dynasty has served as the royal residence of Chinese Emperors for more than 500 years. The walls, corridors, gates, inner and outer court and surroundings still exude the ambiance of royalty and highest political prowess of the country.
The Great Wall of China, which was once acclaimed as the only man-made structure visible from moon, was a strong fortification made up of stone, brick and wood and a proud World Heritage Site. The length of Great Wall of China is almost 8,851 km. Wide and stretched across the jungle, desert, meadows, mountains and plains, this wall has quite a strong historic presence and its first mention is found in almost 8th and 5th century BC. A true holiday package of China would be incomplete without marvelling at the miracle that allowed the men without any present-day scientific and technological strength to create such a huge and significant structure.
Classical Gardens of Suzhou, located in Suzhou, are a group of gardens that have been built by Chinese scholars over a period of more than 1000 years. The elegant design, detailed and delicate style and sheer subtle look have been present in most of these gardens and have influenced most other parks in the region such as the Imperial Gardens in Chengde Mountain Resort.
Longmen Grottoes, located in Luoyang region of Henan, have been world heritage sites since year 2000. These caves have some of the most well sculpted and elegantly designed Chinese Buddhist sculptures. The carved and well painted images have stood the test of time. There are as many as 100,000 statues that are situated in 1400 caves. In addition, there are rock tablets and inscriptions from the ancient history of China that can be found here. The outdoor scenic location, vast collection and elegant designs have always attracted tourists to this wonderful sightseeing destination. However, most visitors to China do not visit all the caves.
Most travellers on a holiday package of China visit the culturally relevant, historically significant caves such as Guyang cave, Middle Binyang cave, South Binyang cave, Feng Xian Si or Li Zhi cave as these are better known.
When you travel to this country, you are promised the opportunity of seeing a number of sites that you never even knew existed. You won’t be disappointed.
