Plans have been revealed that could see Beijing merge with nearby cities, which would turn the capital into a super-megacity.
A new report has revealed that Chengdu City is the most popular destination amongst Chinese holidaymakers and in the process has beaten off competition from popular destinations such as Shanghai, Beijing and Xian.
Shanghai is China’s biggest city and is the country’s financial capital, but the former port town is also a hugely popular destination for holidaymakers.
While many enjoy escorted tours of China to discover the beautiful landmarks, bustling cities and rich animal life – including the giant pandas – one of the biggest draws is the nation’s past.
It’s not a bad thing when your city has been compared to “heaven” for centuries, but the leaders of Hangzhou want to make sure the city is environmentally sustainable so future generations can enjoy the locale.
Just off the coast from Shanghai, a small fishing village near the mouth of the Yangtze River stands as a reminder that nature may be the ultimate judge.
Just 25 miles outside of Shanghai, there is an architectural oddity: China’s own leaning tower, built nearly 1,000 years ago.
Your long-awaited holiday is almost here, but first you need to get through the long-haul flight.
