China's capital Beijing is full of culture: palaces, museums and monuments.
The city has many places of historic interest and scenic beauty as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace.

An easy daytrip from Beijing is the The Great Wall of China, the only man-made structure that can be seen from the moon. A fortification that has been built from the 3rd century BC up until the 17th century. The purpose of the wall was to protect Chinese territory from raids by the Mongols and other nomadic tribes.

The Karst mountains are very beautiful in China. They can be viewed best from Yangshuo (Li River), a small town close to Guilin.

The Stone Forest is situated 83km from Kunming (between Dali and Guilin) and it has many different, almost magical, Karst formations.
It is one of the National Scenic Resorts in China and a natural wonder.

Hong Kong (the name means Fragrant Harbor) has developed from a small fishing village in the 1800s into the dynamic cosmopolitan metropolis it is today. Due to the very high population density, it is full of the tallest skyscrapers. Hong Kong is also a major seaport and a true shopper's paradise. The city was handed back to the People's Republic of China, by Great Britain in 1997.
Hong Kong island.
