    China Must-See Attractions

    China’s rich history and its historical sites play a pivotal role in the list of Top Ten Things to Do there. The Forbidden City, one time housing 9,000 servants and members of the royal family, is an undisputed hit while the Great Wall draws the crowds in their millions to see the largest defense system in the world.

    One of the most significant archeological finds of the last century, the Terracotta Warriors – created to ‘protect’ the Emperor Quin Shi Huang in the next world – they never fail to impress. Yunnan Stone Forest is a wonder of Nature and a prime example of the phenomenon that is karsts. China’s national symbol, the Giant Panda, is ubiquitous throughout the land yet comparatively few remain and are kept at panda sanctuaries – a visit to one is time well spent.

    The Stone Forest is a creation of prehistory. Roughly 270 million years ago, the earth flexed its muscles, caused an ocean to drain and the limestone seabed to rise up. The wash of the receding waters, time, wind and acidic rains, all lent to the erosion of the limestone until only tall narrow karsts remained dotting the otherwise barren landscape. Read More...
