Explore enchanting China and its most popular tourist attractions

China is a nation of cultures, dynasties, legends, and the people who built this vast, magical country that is home to some of the most spectacular and amazing places to see the face of the planet. Every city and everything you encounter in China is breathtaking and stunning. Every bridge, cobblestone, and pristine water lake also has its own historical narrative to tell.

An epic landmark in China – the Zhangye Danxia Landform

The Forbidden City, located in China’s capital city Beijing, is one of the most stunning tourist sites in China. Visitors can explore the 180-acre complex, which today holds some of the most important artefacts and treasures linked to Chinese history.

Daring suspension bridges

The new bridge in China’s Shiniuzhai National Park makes it difficult not to glance down. This bridge is located in Hunan Province’s Pingjiang County. The suspension bridge’s tread is almost entirely made of plexiglass, and it is known as the “most scary bridge in the world,” with a height of 180 meters and a length of 300 meters. The glass bottom allows hikers to see the entire valley below. The structure was appropriately named Haohan Qiao, which translates as “Bridge of the Brave.”

Fortunately for tourists, the bridge is very safe, and up to 800 people can stand on the 24-millimetre-thick glass at the same time, so this outing is suitable for the entire family. Furthermore, the rebate provides substantial support, reducing the risk of individuals falling even if the glass has cracked.

The Haohan Qiao is not China’s only glass bridge, but it is the country’s first suspension bridge made completely of glass. A second glass suspension bridge with a length of 430 meters and an altitude of 300 meters was planned to be built 300 kilometres away in the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area. It would then be the world’s highest and longest glass bridge.

The Great Wall of China

A trip to China isn’t complete unless you see the Great Wall of China. The Great Wall of China is undoubtedly one of the world’s most talked-about wonders, and for good reason! A 6000-kilometre wall constructed 2000 years ago is an astounding architectural feat that would be impossible to reproduce even now. The Great Wall of China not only draws worldwide tourists who are awestruck by such a marvel, but it is also a haven for history and architecture buffs who appreciate the intricacies of the wall that has been built and repaired over the years.

China also offers top aqua entertainment for children, in the form of some of the best water parks in the world, such as the China Xuzhou Caribbean Water World, China Kunshan “Water Dream” Water Park, and China Hangzhou Langlanglang Water Park, to mention a few. Every year, thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to these water parks.

There are many fantastic sights, experiences, and discoveries awaiting international travellers.

Planning a family trip to China may seem challenging for most families, but don’t let that deter you, and don’t let anyone tell you that this nation isn’t worth visiting with your children! Visit the country alone, with family, or with friends, but be sure to place China on your top travel destinations list! You will not regret it, and it will be the trip of a lifetime.
