Are you tired of the busy life, noisy and congested city, maybe it’s the time to relax yourself with your family. China Tours are good choices. It’s quite different from the western country. As we know, Beijing tours, Shanghai Tours are the most famous. But When I get there, I feel it’s familiar to some big city in the world. Although the Forbidden City, the Great Wall is full of Beijing culture, you can also see the tall buildings, Malls, and lots of other modern architecture.

So can we just found a place that all the traditional things? Finally, I found this place –Wuzhen. Wuzhen is one of the four famous towns in Jiangnan, a richly histories town with 6,000 years. Talking about Hangzhou travel, people often know the West Lake. But I promise you that you will lose yourself in Wuzhen.
In Wuzhen, everything keeps up an old customs. Walking on the slabstone-paved street, all housed in wooden structures of brown. Rivers and creeks spanned with stone bridges in various designs flow through the town, and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal passes by. I feel it’s just like a dream when I first came here.

You can imagine that: When you get up early in the morning, the sun light gets in through the windows, the air was perfumed with the delicate smell of woods. And when you open the window you can see the river flowing down your house, the women washing their clothes by the shore. If you go there in a good time, there’re little people in the town, you can walk around on your own, the air was fresh and wet, with a little fog, you will see many ancient stone bridges, local people said that every bridge has its own story, have a seat and listen to the story, time passed so fast at this time. In the night, you can taste some traditional food. People here are very kind and passionately, they often broke out their best food for the guest. After dinner, all things quiet down. Staying in your room, looking out of the window, Darkness was gathering, the light which came from street lamps was winking just like starlight. You may heard the sound that the children are having a frolic before bedtime, or some traditional Chinese music, then you can go to bed with peace of mind.

That’s what I feel during my Wuzhen trip. And of course, there has many good attractions in Wuzhen, just like Former Residence of Mao Dun (he is a famous writer in China); Fanglu Pavilion (Pavilion of Visits to Lu); Hongyuantai dye-works. This is good, but I prefer more to the environment here, the peaceful, comfort town that can give you a relaxed life you never experienced in the big city.

In this trip, I bought some  for my family. I feel it’s very beautiful, a local people told me it’s said that this kind of cloth was created by a farmer named Gehong for his wife. The blueprint cloth was widely used in Jiangnan, the crafts are all from the folk, the design fill with the rich traditional customs, the theme include nothing else but flowers and plants vegetation, is nearby the farmhouse, the boundary ridge between fields. But just these two kinds of colors can make you feel reality and beauty.
I’m very happy about this Wuzhen trip, I often told this story to my friends that I enjoyed an unforgettable experience. That’s what I want to see in China Tours, and hope you can go there once with your friends. Its worth to visit, trust me~!

Suzhou classical gardens are renowned for their exquisite design and ethereal beauty. Among them the Humble Administrator’s Garden is largest and most beautiful. It has been listed as a World Cultural Heritage site and also designated as one of the Cultural Relics of National Importance. It covers an area of 52,000 square meters with numerous gardens of various styles. If you take a china travel to this site, you will be probably at a loss as to how to enjoy such a variety of architecture. So in the following I will introduce some convenient routes and important gardens for you and I hope they will be useful for your visit on this site during your China Tours.

As the whole garden is divided into three sections: the eastern section, the central section and the western section, we can follow this kind of division during our visit.

The eastern section has three famous structures: the Heavenly Spring Pavilion (an octagonal pavilion, the largest one in Suzhou’s gardens), the Millet Fragrance Hall and the Lotus Pavilion.

 Millet refers to rice in the area south of the Yangtze River. When rice ripens, its fragrance can spread far, hence the name “the Millet Fragrance Hall” It served as a tea house first and then changes into a souvenir shop. And it is attracting that the Lotus Pavilion was built partially on water and partially on land.

 The central section is the major part of the garden with five main attractions.

 

Secluded Pavilion of Phoenix Tree and Bamboo, a unique pavilion with four moon gates on all four sides, providing frames for exquisite sceneries

 

 Snow  Fragrance  Abundant  Clouds  Pavilion, a rectangular pavilion, which is built on the top of the highest hillock

 

 Distant Fragrance Hall, where the owner used to give banquets and meet visitors, has windows on all four sides without wall

 

 Little Flying Rainbow, the only covered bridge in the gardens of Suzhou, slightly arched, looks like a rainbow

 

 Fragrant Islet, a unique classical building, which looks like a boat anchoring on shore

 Then we come to the western section where four major structures stand.

 

Good for Both Families Pavilion

It’s said that once this place was shared by three families. The owner of the west garden loves the scenery of the middle garden. So he built up this pavilion to get a better view of the sceneries. And consequently this pavilion was also shared by them. 

 

 Inverted Reflection Building, also named as the Memorial Hall for Wen and Shen, two artists at that time.

 

 “With whom shall I sit? From an ancient Chinese poet Sushi who gave the answer “With the bright moon, gentle breeze and myself”. This shows the poetic and pictorial splendor of Suzhou gardens.

 The above mentioned buildings are just a glimpse of the Humble Administrator’s Garden. However they are really full of creative ideas. Here we can not only see so many wonderful creations but also taste the profound cultures in them and at the same time feel its long history. If you are motivated, just come to China, go to Suzhou and you will enjoy a feast for your eyes. This beautiful autumn is just the time for your China Tours!

Where do you like to go most in hot summer days? The sea, the beaches! That’s the answer most travelers would like to give. For them, coastal cities are really a good choice. China has many famous coastal cities such as Qingdao, Dalian and Shenzhen. This summer I had the opportunity to go to Shenzhen where the beaches are really impressive. Here I’d like to share these beautiful beaches with anyone who is interested in China travel and especially in beaches. Hopefully it’ll be helpful for your China tours.

  1. Xiao Meisha Scenic Area

Xiao Meisha Scenic Area which has a notable name ‘Oriental Hawaii’ is located at Dapeng Bay in Yantian District of Shenzhen City. It is surrounded by green mountains on three sides, with one side facing the sea. At the edge of the sea the sandy beach is like a crescent set between the blue sky and the vast ocean. This beach stretches for 1,000 meters (about 0.6 miles) and is noted for its clean sea. Far way from the hustle and bustle of the downtown, here is all about the sunshine, the beach and the sea.

Here you can entertain yourself well by swimming, surfing in the motorboat, fishing, playing games on the beach. Laughter fills the air and when night falls, the barbecue field attracts crowds lured by fragrance of the food being prepared. The blue sky, blue water, white crested waves and golden sands attract thousands upon thousands of people who come here each year.

2. Da Meisha Scenic Area

Da Meisha Scenic Area boasts Shenzhen City’s longest beach which is 1.8 kilometers in length (about 1.1 miles). The beach is wide and the sand here is fine and soft while the clear seawater is shining in the sunlight. ‘Wave Surfing on the Da Meisha Beach’ is one of the ‘Top Eight Scenic Spots’ in Shenzhen.

Several groups of themed sculptures stand on the beach, depicting the aspirations for a better life of the ‘Drifting Generation’ (the young people who had unstable jobs and insecure living conditions during 1940s-1980s). However, now the sculptures have become a symbol of happiness in Da Meisha Scenic Area. On the beach also stands a wish tower. Travelers often climb onto the top of it to make a wish.

Xiao Meisha and Da Meisha Scenic Areas are really good places for spending summer vacations. Besides the beautiful natural scenery, they also offers all the necessary service facilities such as parking lot, showering room, locker room, supermarket, restaurant, etc. I bet you will feel joyful and comfortable on these beaches and have unforgettable memories here during your China travel.

After the Olympiad in 2008 summer, Beijing remains varieties of facilities and advantages on city living.

With 40m in length, 32m in width and 30m in height, the building consists of three exhibition floors. The 2nd floor with 12.5m in height is the main exhibition area covering 1000㎡, while the 3rd floor designed flexibly to get rid of grip from traditional concepts. Apart from displaying paintings, it is also an ideal space for exhibiting large-scale contemporary installations, sculptures and other forms of arts such as video arts, new music and so on.

If you have friends who have come to Beijing already, you must hear about the “798 Arts Zone” from his words. As to improve the arts and design industry, many artists, painter, and even students established their studios in that area.

In 2006,Beijing 798 Art Zone was listed respectively as one of the first concentrations of cultural creative industry by Beijing Civic and Chaoyang District Government, also named as “Beijing 798 Art Zone Cultural Creative Industrial Base of Zhong Guan Cun Electronic City” by Zhong Guan Cun management committee.

Beijing is developing very rapidly, many mansions and skyscrapers are growing every single day. There is leak of what are the traditional ones in downtown to express “Old Beijing”. A hidden treasure of downtown is an allure for the new who is coming to Beijing.

Many foreigners have come to know Nanluoguxiang in the capital’s Dongcheng District after patronizing the Pass By and Here bars. One of the best persevered areas in Downtown Beijing, Nanluoguxiang is famous for its hutong and courtyards (siheyuan) but it is also now famed for the cafes and bars and clothing and handcraft shops that line its hutong laneways. Dubbed “another bar area besides Houhai, Workers’ Stadium and Sanlitun,” Nanluoguxiang is a perfect blend of past and present.

Nanluoguxiang has a 768-metre-long south-north central lane, with 16 hutong meandering east and west of off the central lane, giving each side eight hutong. This was the typical hutong layout of the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368). With a history of more than 700 years, Nanluoguxiang is one of the capital’s oldest hutong areas and has been one of Beijing’s 25 cultural and historical protection areas since 1990. The southern end of Nanluoguxiang can be found at Di’anmen on Ping’an Dajie, with its northern end at Gulou Dongdajie (Drum Tower East Street).

Walk north of the Pass By Bar and you will encounter The Central Academy of Drama, the alma mater of countless Chinese TV and film stars such as Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Pedicabs are often found waiting outside its gates that serve visitors to the area. Posters of the First Beijing International University Students Drama Festival are still displayed around the academy. Some believe the tranquil hutong and the artistic drama academy determine the basic tone of the bars and shops there.

For most visitors, National Arts Museum of China is one options for who wants to see the perfect display and valuable sense. The National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) is a national museum dedicated to the collection, research and exhibitions of modern and contemporary artistic works in China. In June 1963, Chairman Mao Zedong inscribed the Chinese-language title board of the museum, which demonstrated its position as a national art museum and the nature of its establishment. The main building features the styles of ancient Chinese attics and ethnic architecture, which is roofed with yellow glazed tiles and surrounded by corridors and pavilions.

In order to become a national modern museum with international standards, the museum began reconstruction of the main building in May 2002. A variety of facilities have achieved the national leading level after it was completed in May 2003, including exhibition halls, illumination, self-control, constant temperature and humidity, fire control and alarm, and security control system. The new museum has adopted new technology of modern construction, expanded the traditional pattern and enriched new connotations of the ethnic construction tradition. At its 40th anniversary on July 23, 2003, the museum reopened to the public and attracted great attention from artistic circles from home and abroad.

Incredible! Beijing allures people who come from every corner of the world. Beijing Tour gives your another kind of enjoyable. Just keep an eye on the modern arts and brings you here.
