It always amazes me how many people don’t want anything to do with China. I have never understood it, even before I went. Other travellers I’ve meet chatting away in hostels always seem to be like:
“Oh, why would you want to go to China? It’s all pollution and dirty cities..right?”
And I really have to stop myself from yelling …. WRONG! China has written history going back 4,000 years and is one of our great ancient civilizations of the world. I fell in love with China when travelling here for a month – The amazing food, people, culture, history and experiences. There is no place like it and while the language barrier can be difficult, it is extremely rewarding to experience the interactions you just don’t get in countries with a huge amount of international tourism. I really think China has so much to offer the world, and travellers, so I have compiled 16 photos that will make you want to drop everything and go to China! Now to get on with booking my next trip there….
