About Me

Now i am settled in Beijing since 2024 january 10. I would like to meet surfers as well as locals. Like to make friends. I will try to

Sure, here are some of the top places to visit in China:

Beijing: The capital of China, Beijing is home to many historical and cultural landmarks, including the Forbidden City, the Great Wall of China, and Tiananmen Square.

Shanghai: The most populous city in China, Shanghai is a modern metropolis with a skyline that is dominated by skyscrapers.Xi'an: The capital of Shaanxi province.

Xi'an is home to the Terracotta Army, a collection of life-size clay soldiers that were buried with the first emperor of China.

Guilin: A city in Guangxi province, Guilin is known for its karst formations, which have been carved by millions of years of erosion.

Zhangjiajie: A city in Hunan province, Zhangjiajie is home to the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, which inspired the floating mountains in the movie "Avatar".

Here are some other things to keep in mind when planning your trip to China:

The best time to visit China is during the spring (April-May) or autumn (September-October). The weather is mild during these seasons, and there are fewer crowds.

The official language of China is Mandarin Chinese. However, English is becoming increasingly common in major cities.

China is a cash-based society. It is advisable to bring some Chinese currency (RMB) with you, but you can also use credit cards in most major cities.
It is important to be respectful of Chinese culture and customs. For example, it is considered rude to point with your index finger.
I hope this helps!
