What’s Special about China?

With thousands of years of history, a varied landscape, a huge multiethnic population, and a dynamic, fast-changing present, China is a country that never ceases to surprise. There’s always something new to see or learn in China and — no matter how many times you visit — countless reasons to return.


The Chinese are hardworking, ingenious, festive people, fiercely proud of what their country has accomplished and optimistic about the future. In both small villages and big cities, you’ll find curious, engaged people eager to share their culture.


Across this colossal country, the climate varies from frigid Himalayan tundra to breezy tropical coasts. Summer temperatures can be sweltering, while winters are dry and quite chilly. In much of China, downpours are common during the summer rainy season.


China’s big cities offer entertainment options ranging from live music and trendy nightclubs to down-to-earth ping-pong and karaoke bars. For more traditional fare, explore Chinese opera performances, elusive shadow puppetry, and riveting orchestras of folk instruments.


In addition to conventional beliefs such as Taoism and Confucianism, China incorporates diverse influences such as Tibetan Buddhism and the millennial history of its southern hill tribes. China is a simmering cultural melting pot, constantly blending old and new.


Especially in the east, Mandarin is spoken by the vast majority of Chinese. Regionally, languages such as Cantonese and Shanghainese are also widely spoken. A testament to its staggering cultural diversity, nearly 300 living languages are spoken across China.


From its earliest dynasties to the 1949 communist revolution and its recent emergence as a global power, China has an illustrious history and, as many on the streets of China will tell you, an even brighter future.
