China to become the world’s top tourist destination

Image Credit Asia is becoming the second largest tourism destination in the world, second only to Europe. One such place that is drawing more and more tourists is China. Within a decade, this fascinating place is expected to top the list of the world’s most popular destinations. The Great Wall of China which has recently been picked as one of the New Seven wonders of the World and it is being used as a tool to bring tourists into China. Li River, Beijing, Xian, the Yangtze River, Guilin, Yangshuo and Shanghai are must see. I’m sure you all know about the Summer Olympics that are scheduled to be held in Beijing in 2008. The city is getting a makeover with many new programs. Tiananmen Square, Mao Zedong’s mausoleum, the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the Great Wall are among the main icons of Beijing. In the evening time, you can also enjoy a spectacular acrobatic show or The Legend of Kung Fu, a wonderful, spiritual and energetic ballet. Image Credit Yangtze River cruise will give you chance to see the Three Gorges Dam, one of the world’s biggest projects and watch life on the river which carries 80 percent of China’s waterborne traffic. Next, you can go on Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo, past the karsts, ragged mountains which look like giant green molehills and remind one of classic Chinese landscape painting. Yangshuo which is a charming small town is good for shopping. If you are in Yangshuo, you can’t miss an evening performance of a sound and light show featuring a cast of 600 local farmers and fishermen on a set that incorporates the river and a backdrop of the mountains. Though China is becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations, yet it’s not the place for an independent traveler. English is not spoken widely in China, so taking a package tour is preferable. Wendy Wu Tours offers a 17-day package called the Wonders of China. It’s an ideal way to see the main points of interest in four-star comfort. Wendy Wu Tours offers a selection of programs to suit every traveler. It has a number of fully-escorted tours of China ranging from 10 days to 29 days. The 17-day Wonders of China tour runs from March to November and prices start at $3,980 twin share, including international air fares, national escort and local guides, departure taxes and visa fees for Australian passports
