There are many interesting places to visit in China. First let me
tell you about the city of Shanghai. Shanghai is the largest city in
It is very popular for its beautiful Yuyuan Gardens, which
has one of the most popular sites in Shanghai, the Jade Buddha. It
is made out of the exquisite jade rock. It is a 5 ton beautifully
shaped stone. To get into this beautiful garden you will have to go
down the zig-zag bridges. Some other things in the garden are
century old furniture, calligraphy and paintings of famous artist,
clay sculptures and brick carvings. China’s tallest man made
building is also located in Shanghai. It is called the Jin Mao
building which is 1,381 feet tall and it is located in Pudong as are the Oriental
pearl television tower and the Shanghai stock exchange. The last
thing I recommend you to see is the Bund. A scenic one mile road
running along the rivers west and lined with hotels and office
buildings built by Western nations in 1920’s.
Another reason to visit China is to see the Himalaya Mountains.
There you can also see Mt. Everest which is known as the tallest
mountain in the world. It is 60 million years old and 29,035 feet.
The Himalaya Mountains also include 8 out of 10 of the worlds
highest peaks. The land is very dangerous to travel with lots of
slopes, ice and snow, many people have tried to climb Mt. Everest,
but only 660 people have been successful. 140 people were not.
