Title: 40 Most Beautiful Attractions Sight Views of China

Preparation: China (simplified Chinese: 中国; traditional Chinese: 中國; pinyin: Zhōngguó), officially the People's Republic of China (PRC), is a sovereign state located in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of over 1.35 billion. 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four direct-controlled municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing), and two mostly self-governing special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau). Covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometers, China is the world's second-largest country by land area.

Things I wish I had known before: China has public holiday May Day ( May 1st), National Day ( October 1st). During these holiday periods, there are most crowded in the tourism attractions. if possible, also it's better to avoid travel in China during the Spring Festival holiday. The date of the Spring Festival varies each year and depends on the Lunar Calendar. Usually it is between the end of January to the end of February. Note: Initially this was a voluntary project I have done for a special event: Katy ISD Stanley Elementary International Festival - China. Most of the descriptions are from wikipedia.org. I believe this post is a very good post for people who want to learn about China and its culture.

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC; these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall. Especially famous is the wall built 220–206 BC by Qin Shihuang, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains. Since then, the Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty.

Other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Furthermore, the defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were enhanced by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire, and the fact that the path of the Great Wall also served as a transportation corridor.
