China - World Fact - Hostel in Europe


China Where do you begin, in a country so big as China?! The civilizations of China is one of the worlds oldest and thereby it makes its history one of most rich but also complex. Comming from the west this will be a whole other world with everything from desert, peaks, caves, imperial ruins, to metropolises. You will for example find Beijing as one historic museum, only waiting for you to explore, or Shanghai, one of the worlds largest cities and the centre of trade and industry in China. Not to forget, the Chinese wall, the worlds longest construction, must be seen. This wall goes 2200 years back,where the first part was build, and today it is still standing, even after beeing used as protection af invaders. Can it be more amazing?! Hostel in Europe Network
