25 Other Reasons to Visit China

My next extended trip will be to China. My trip will span 10 days and my time will be spent mostly between Beijing and Shanghai. I think the #1 attraction to China for most people is the Great Wall, but here are plenty of other reasons to go!

I’m pretty certain I will eventually return to China for a second time. With so many incredible places to visit and things to see, there’s no possible way I’ll see everything I want to this time.

I’m sure 5 or 10 good reasons is sufficient, but I thought I’d really over do it and find 25 very convincing reasons to visit China. Let me know which ones really stick out to you!

      I am lucky enough to have been to 8 of these places! 🙂 While the Summer Palace is beautiful and has a really cool history, the last 2 times I’ve went I found it uncomfortably crowded. I would recommend going not at peak tourist season if possible!

      I’ve been to seven of these places (actually just got back from a trip to the rainbow danxia mountains!) and they’re entirely worth the visit. Hope you enjoy your trip! 🙂
