Great Places to See in China
There are many interesting places in China for you to visit.
Shanghai is one fascinating place to see. Did you know it has more
than 20 million people living there? Shanghai is split in two
sections. One section is where poor people live and the other side
of the city is for the rich. It costs a lot of money to live there.
Another reason why you should visit China is to see Mount
Everest. Scientists say its over 60 million years old! Over 1,000
people tried to climb Mt. Everest and only a few people were
successful. The first two people to climb it were Sir Edmund and
As well as Mount Everest you should visit the Terracotta
Warriors. The Terracotta Warriors are life size figures of army
warriors grouped in battle formation. They were discovered in 1979.
They were built because there was a king called Qin Shi who died and
was buried in a tomb. The warriors were built to protect him in his
after life. King Shi’s tomb has deadly booby traps all around. Did
you know there are over 7,000 clay warriors?
As you can see, China is a pretty cool place to visit. Shanghai is
the largest city in China. Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in
the world and the Terracotta warriors are ancient figures that
anyone would be amazed by!
