China or the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is in East Asia and has the highest population in the world at 1.35 billion people! Its land mass covers approximately 5.9 million square miles (9.6 million kilometers), making it the second largest country in the world, next to Russia. It is broken up into 22 provinces.

If you travel to the eastern and southern half of the country, you will be charmed by the seacoast with many offshore islands.

This landmass covers approximately 500,000 square miles and is made up of sandy areas as well as exposed flat rock. Creating a rain shadow on the Gobi are the Himalayan Mountains. Due to its rough conditions few animals call Gobi home. The Bactrian camel, snow leopard, Gobi bear and various other species can tolerate this region.

 

The  Great Wall Of ChinaWhen someone mentions China, the first thing that probably pops into our head is the Great Wall. This architectural wonder first started being erected as early as the 7th century BC and was a way to keep out warring enemies. It is built in sections from tamped earth, stone, brick and wood, among other materials. The Qin, Han and Ming Dynasties all had notable additions to this famous structure.

This underground group consisted of warriors, chariots and horses all made from terracotta and in various sizes.

    My brother just went to China and he said that it is a very big state just like America and people are busy managing their own businesses. This video book has a lot of information about China and is very good for children. They won’t get bored because aside from China’s information, it has a lot of photos too!

    Many people believe that China as one of the most influential and powerful countries in Asia because of its economic stability and geological aspects. I think that China has a wonderful culture to share with tourists and locals as well. What keeps me really amazed of the country is the presence of Great Wall of China since it is the only man made structure that can be seen on space. Isn’t it amazing?

      Aside from being the most influential and powerful country in Asia , China is a large country with widely varying landscapes. Its territory includes mountains, high plateaus, sandy deserts, and dense forests. What a nice place to go.
