China is a massive country with the most epic landscapes and megacities. Being one of the oldest civilizations and highly developed countries in the world, traveling in China brings traditional and futuristic experiences together.

While China is not the easiest place to explore due to its size, it is an exciting country to visit, as it’s filled with diverse cuisines, cultures, languages, and many other things.

Visiting China’s busiest city Shanghai will feel like stepping into the future. It’s an outstanding city to wander around with all the lights, speed trains, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Some of the best things to do in Shanghai include walking the Bund, shopping at Nanjing Road, seeing the lovely Yuyuan Garden, and exploring the Old City. A visit to West Lake, Hangzhou makes it a great day trip from Shanghai.

Beijing is a must for everyone traveling to China. The list of Beijing attractions is quite long but the most important ones are exploring the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, and of course, the Great Wall.

If you got more time, discover other parts of China. Spend time in Xi’an, take a bike ride on top of the old city walls, and see the famous Terracotta Army. Head to Chengdu to see the pandas and take a day trip to Leshan Giant Buddha in Sichuan.

Adventure lovers won’t get disappointed in China. You can explore Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in Hunan which became famous after filming the Avatar movie. Hike the Yellow Mountains in Huangshan City. Go to Tibet, also known as the Roof of the World and see Potala Palace in Lhasa.

Hong Kong and Macau are two special administrative regions in China. While Hong Kong’s unique skyline is the main reason to visit this magnificent place, Macau attracts visitors for being the Vegas of Asia.
