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.
From her plateaus, mountains, seas and waters, China has a broad range of geographical beauty. If you travel to the eastern and southern half of the country, you will be charmed by the seacoast with many offshore islands. This region supplies the area with most of the agriculture and human population with fertile lowlands and graceful foothills.
Asia and a part of China is also home to the Gobi desert. It is the fifth largest desert in the world and Asia’s biggest. 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.
