The landscape in China is vast and diverse, from tropical rain forest in the south west to the Gobi and Taklamakan deserts in the north, the Tibetan plateau and the Himalayas in the west to the fertile plains in the east. There are also the mighty rivers of the Yangtze and the Yellow Rivers, as well as 56 ethnic groups in China. All these make visits to China interesting and inspiring.

Hangzhou is also an ancient city which was already prosperous when Marco Polo visited China in the 13th century. In the central part, the archeological discoveries in Sanxingdui and Jinsha near Chengdu established that the area was inhabited at least 4,000 years ago. To the west, Kashgar and Urumqi were important towns along the ancient Silk Road.
