The fun is always there to be had, but the thing is that there is so much to see and that means you are going to want to make sure you give yourself enough time to do certain things per day, and that means organization and planning like a good little Asian mathematics major is required, so that is exactly what we are going to help you with through this article, and I think this will help you out a ton while touring China because if you decide to read through this entire article then you will have a comprehensive idea of what you should do while you are in China, and I’m telling you that you should go do everything and more than what I am going to tell you to do, and this is simply just an outline of some of the more fun things to do while touring China, and of course some of these places are must see locations that you just can not skip out on, but everything else that you can find out about is also something that you should really consider because there really is a lot of fun that can be had in China no matter what is going on, and I really like the idea that you are going to be going to China with my help because I used to live there because I studied abroad there and I know a lot about the country and so I know I can definitely help you out a lot as you plan your trip to tour China and do something really epic with your time in this marvelous country.
Alright, so first thing is first is that you need to make sure you know which place to fly into first, and I think that this decision is definitely up to the individual and it will just depend on what you would like to do first, because this decision will determine the timeline of your travels and where you will be going, but if you are flying into China from the United States which I am assuming is where you’ll be flying in from then you should probably start out your trip in China in the capital city Beijing and then start moving your way down the coast and then westward into the Himalayan mountain range. So if you do decide to at first see Beijing then you should know that Beijing itself is one of the coolest cities in the world and there is a ton of things that you definitely need to go see in the city so you should definitely give yourself around a week in Beijing or at least a handful of days so that you can see all that the city has to offer. Of course the main thing to do in Beijing, and probably the main tourist attraction in all of China, is to go to the Great Wall of China and hike around. So the Great Wall is not too far outside of the city limits of Beijing and when you get there it will be absolutely amazing but it will also be a really intense hike just to get up to the wall because the wall is on the mountain tops for hundreds of miles, but if you want to hike up to get to the wall that means you have to hike all the way to the top of the mountain, and that is not anything to sneeze at because that is a really steep trail, but at the same time it doesn’t take that long and is just simply a lot of fun anyways. Of course the Great Wall is one of the seven wonders of the world so it is definitely something that you simply have to do while you are in China and it is such a powerful moment while you are walking on the wall that it definitely will make you feel like you’ve accomplished something special in life, and that’s an amazing feeling that only a place like the Great Wall of China can provide to you.
The next really epic thing that you definitely need to go do while you are in China, which is a little bit south of Beijing and will be a good stop after you leave Beijing will be to go see the Terracotta Army, which is arguably one of the most amazing art exhibits in the entire world and it is definitely one of the most amazing archaeological findings in the history of mankind, so I mean come on you have to go see this cave full of stone soldiers, and I think you will really be amazed at this sight, and it really is kind of creepy because each and every one of these soldiers is unique, and that is so special about this thing and it is definitely such a cultural part of China and is very special, so if you are leaving Beijing then don’t forget that the Terracotta Army is only just a days travel to the south and that you will easily be able to get there as you start heading south to a whole other climate of China.
One more thing that you have to do while you are in Beijing is go to see the Forbidden City in the very middle of the city, and this is seriously like the coolest ruins that you will ever see because it is the size of a little city and it was for the elite and the king of China for centuries, and it still is perfectly intact today, and it is absolutely amazing it really is, and it’s hard to know exactly what you can do there but it is just really cool to go see everything there because it is so huge and awesome in every way.
