Travel to beautiful China is a life time experience!

China's tourism industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the national economy and is also one of the industries with a very distinct global competitive edge.

According to statistics from the World Tourism Organization (WTO)'s 2004, 41.8 million people visited China in 2004.

Increasing commercial activity between China and the West has drawn businessmen to China, not only for business but for pleasure as well. And friendly prices for accommodations and food compared with Western destinations has also helped raise China's standing.

There are 99 state-class historical and cultural cities, 750 national-class cultural relics and places of historical interest under key government protection, and 119 major scenic spots, 19 of which are listed as world Natural and Cultural Heritages.

Ancient cities of Beijing, Xi'an, Nanjing, Luoyang, Kaifeng, Hangzhou, and Anyang are the seven ancient capitals, and people can follow the traces of Confucius, Qin Shihuang, and Genghis Khan to admire the extensive and profound Chinese culture.

China has long been known for its beautiful landscapes. Some of the most famous are the Lijiang River in Guilin, the Five Mountains, the Three Gorges along the Changjiang River, and the water scenes in southern China. The noted tourist attractions include Mount Huangshan in Anhui Province, Mount Emei in Sichuan Province, the Huanggoushu Waterfall and Limestone Caves in Guizhou Province, the Stone Forest in Yunnan Province, the Grasslands in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and the frost-covered trees in Jilin Province in winter.

China's folklore is especially attractive. There are more than 40 yearly festivals. And every ethnic minority group has its own festivals. China is also famous for its special arts such as Beijing Opera, acrobatics, songs and dances, and calligraphy and painting.

China's many fine ports and coastal areas along the coastline are choice destinations for vacationers. The country has established a number of national holiday resorts, Thus offering more choices for vacationers.

With the approaching of the 2008 Olympics in China, the number of tourists is predicted to grow on a much larger scale.
