China's multi-millennial history has been a tumultuous one.
One of the world's earliest civilisations, it was ruled for
thousands of years by imperial dynasties until the overthrowing
of the Qing dynasty in 1911. The civil war in 1945 defined the
China of today, ending with the defeated Nationalists fleeing to
Taiwan, while Mao's victorious Communists founded the People's
Republic of China. The Cultural Revolution in the 1960s
effectively closed the country. However, China has made up for
lost time since the 1990s: it now boasts the world's fastest
growing major economy and its main cities are emerging as
cosmopolitan global centres.
China is a land of natural and cultural superlatives too,
encompassing 37 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Great
Wall and Forbidden City in Beijing, Xi'an's Terracotta Army,
traditional Suzhou gardens and the misty peaks of Huangshan.
Chinese food ranks among the world's great cuisines, while its
distinctive art forms, including acrobatics, martial arts and
Chinese opera, add more flavour to the mix.
From Beijing's medley of ancient and futuristic monuments to
cosmopolitan Shanghai's skyscrapers and art-deco heritage; and
from the heights of the spectacular Tibet (Xizang) Autonomous
Region to the karst peaks and rivers of Guizhou, China's
experiences are many and varied. Investment spurred on by
hosting world events like the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the 2010
Shanghai World Expo and 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou means
urban and tourist infrastructure is constantly evolving. And
while flexibility and patience are still required to travel
around China, in return, the Middle Kingdom rewards visitors
with memories to treasure for a lifetime.
