Greatest Attraction in China
The first thing that strikes visitors to the country is the extraordinary density of its population.While traveling around the country itself is the easiest it has ever been, it would be wrong to pretend that it is an entirely simple matter to penetrate modern China. The main tourist highlights – the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta Army and the Yangzi gorges – are relatively few considering the vast size of the country, and much of China’s historic architecture has been deliberately destroyed in the rush to modernize.
The best time to visit will depend on where you’re travelling to. The south is subtropical, with wet, humid summers (April–Sept), when temperatures can approach 40°C and a typhoon season on the southeast coast between July and September.
