Interesting Places in China
Many places in China are beautiful and one of those places you
might want to visit is Hong Kong. To begin with Hong Kong has a
beautiful place called Victoria Peak where many rich live. Another
place in Hong Kong is Ocean Park. Ocean Park is an aquarium where
you can see all kinds of fish including orca whales and jelly fish. It also has a water
park with roller coasters. Hong Kong is one of the busiest places in
China. It has two sections. An old section where many of the poorer
people may live and the new city where the super rich live.
Another beautiful place in China is Mt. Everest. It can be found
just north of India. Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in the
world it is 29,025 ft high and reaches into the jet stream. It is
about 60 million years old. Mt Everest is also one of the most
dangerous mountains in the world. Because the height is so high, the
wind gets up to 200 miles per hour and is covered in ice and snow.
4,000 people have tried to climb Mt. Everest and only 660 have made
it and 140 people have lost their lives climbing the mountain.
Finally, you must visit the Forbidden City (also known as The
Palace Museum) located in the heart of Beijing. It was the home of
24 emperors. There are 980 buildings and 8,707 rooms. It is
surrounded by a moat that is 360 meters long and 50 meters wide.
Since yellow is the symbol of royalty, the Palace roofs are yellow,
floors are yellow, and even tiles on walls are yellow. It was opened
to the public in 1942.
So as you can see, China is a spectacular place to visit. Go see
Hong Kong, Mt. Everest and the Forbidden City.
