Top 1. Beijing
- Capital of China
is a world-famous ancient cultural city, the capital
of China, as well as China's political, economic
and cultural center as well as a center for international
communications. Roughly 500,000 years ago the
land was the home of Peking Man. Beijing was established
as a city in 1045 BC. For nearly 800 years, Beijing
was a capital city - the provisional capital of
the Liao Dynasty and the capital of the Jin, Yuan,
Ming and Qing Dynasties.which are represented
by the Great Wall of China, China's legendary
line of defense; the Forbidden City, famous as
one of the largest and best-preserved ancient
imperial palace museums; the Summer Palace, a
lovely imperial garden.
Beijing is brightened by its glorious
past, but is by no means struck in the past. Standing
side-by-side with old Beijing's crimson palace
complexes are the city's modern buildings, the
super-modern Olympic Village, with the Bird??s
Nest Stadium and Water Cube; the dazzling shopping
malls inWangfujing Street and the colorful entertainment
center of Houhai.
Despite all the changes in recent
years, traditional lifestyle has been well-preserved
in the oldest neighborhoods of the city - the
Hutongs, which are mazes of narrow alleyways and
old single storey traditional courtyard houses.
A tour by rickshaw through the Hutongs will give
travelers a glimpse of "Old Beijing".
In a word, Beijing is a must-see place
for any visitors to China. As the political, cultural,
scientific and educational heart as well as a
key transportation hub of today's China and China
in the past, it offers a general idea of China's
past, China today, and the direction in which
China is heading in the 21st century.
Top 2 : Xi'an
- A Window On China's Ancient Civilization
:It was called Changan in ancient times. As the
cradle of Chinese civilization, it has been existed
for more one million years; ape-man in Lantian
is a representative. The city has passed though
Zhou, Han, Tang and other 12 dynasties as the
capital. It enjoys the fame of ??four worlds civilized
ancient cities?? with ancient Athens, Cairo and
roman. No visit to China will be complete without
a few days' stay in Xi'an.Xi'an is, for certain,
one of the most popular tourist destinations among
foreign travelers, which is included in the itineraries
of almost all tour packages. At China Great Travel,
we feel that a tour to Xi'anis something that
any tourist to China would not want to miss, as
it serves as a window on China's ancient civilization.
Top 3. Shanghai
- China's Largest City
China's largest city and financial centre, has
latched onto the Expo as its chance to establish
its global profile as a dazzling metropolis in
the same way last year's Beijing Olympics turned
the world's attention to the nation's capital.Shanghai,
China's biggest and most prosperous city, oozes
an atmosphere of vitality, and a dynamic which
can rival New York in the United States and Paris
of France in terms of modernity. Shanghai is the
second largest 'city proper' in the world after
Mumbai. As one of the world's leading economic
and business cities, Shanghai's modernity is evidenced
by the ambitious skyline in the Pudong Economic
Zone and the gorgeous night scenes of the Huangpu
River, when its immense towers dance in unison.
The Pudong Development Area in Shanghai
is an important special economic zone in China.
The level of the new area's industry, commerce,finance,
trade, post and telecommunications stands at the
forefront in China. More than 130 buildings there
are higher than a hundred metres.
As the most prosperous business center
in China, Shanghai leads allthe others in both
social commodity's total volume of retail sales
andexport value. In recent years, it has made
rapid progress in financeand banking service,
and stands only next to Beijing, as one of themain
financial centres in China.
It is the largest economic and trade centre in
the country and a comprehensive industrial base.
Shanghai Port is the leading port inChina. It
is an open city along the coast, as well as a
famous historical and cultural city. Industry
and commerce are flourishing. As a world famous
international port, Shanghai is a gateway in East
China for developing tourist trade. Shanghai's
history of revolution and culture attract tourists
home and abroad. Being regarded as "Paris
of China" and as the paradise for shopping,
Shanghai has become an ideal city for tourism.
Unlike Beijing, Shanghai does not
brim with many great sights. Except for Yuyuan
Garden, Jade Buddha Temple, and the Huangpu River
Cruise, there are no other sights with great appeal.
However, the interest of visiting Shanghai lies
not in scurrying from sight to sight but in the
feel of the city's modern atomosphere.
