Most beautiful places in China
Enigmatic for many, the country with the largest population in the world offers tourists some of the most beautiful natural landscapes on Earth. Whether we speak of “the mountains rainbow” of Zhangye, lakes and plains of multicolored Wuyuan‘s Jiuzhaigou, one thing is clear – China is also experiencing an idyllic natural beauty.
Danxia landscapes – “Mountains of the Rainbow” The north-west China offers a unique landscape in the world: a series of geological formations, like hills, made up of multicolored rocks. Region “rainbow mountains,” as it is known, resembles an oil painting, especially when it is added against a blue sky.
Yellow Mountains One of the most famous tourist attractions of the country, mountainous formation offers a mystical landscape, dotted with small “natural wonders” rocks in strange shapes, “ocean” of clouds and hot springs. The area has the advantage of being accessible, being just a half hour flight to Shanghai.
Wuyuan‘s Plaiurile Wuyuan region, in southeastern China, is considered by many to be the most beautiful landscapes of plains across the country. The area has a special appearance in early spring, when carpet is covered by large yellow rapeseed flowers formed.
Marshes exchange of Xiapu Located near the exit to the South China Sea, the Xiapu is a hidden treasure: sometimes swamps in the area covered by sea water, which sometimes withdraw and leave behind vast muddy plains.
Steps to heaven in Yuanyang Yuanyuang offers a rare landscape in the world at a scale not found: terraced lands stretched vast areas, providing the feeling of a staircase that ascends to heaven.
Pillars of Zhangjiajie Zhangjiajie Nature Reserve, in the center of the country, offers moviegoers a known landscape: huge rock pillars, very close to each other, providing the feeling of a natural field of pillars. The resulting landscape was the main inspiration for similar mountains in Avatar.
China’s communist elite wants to turn an island into a paradise
The Chinese tropical island called “Eastern Hawaii” will be transformed by the communist elite into an expanding center for foreign investment, gambling, tourism and luxury.
Xi Jinping‘s government announced plans for Hainan last month, saying it would encourage the horse racing industry, gambling and the nautical sports industry on the island known as “East Hawaii.” The bigger it is, the Chinese Communist Party forbids its members to play golf, prohibits gambling and allows only occasional horse racing. Hainan Island is located in southern China. Its Chinese name – 海南 – means “south of the sea”. Its population is about 9 million, and its surface is close to that of Belgium. Many ad campaigns and news agencies described the island as “Hawaii in China” or “Eastern Hawaii.”
It certainly looks very different from other Chinese cities like Beijing, writes businessinsider.com . China has limited international tourism on the island, but now relaxes the rules. Earlier this week, the Chinese government said it would let citizens in 59 countries go there without a visa for a month. The complete list now includes the US, all EU countries, Canada, Australia and South Korea. A government document released last week shows that Hainan‘s development plan is a personal priority for President Xi Jinping. China has in fact been trying to develop the tourism industry in Hainan for years. The island attracted around 70 million tourists last year, but only 1.1 million were from other countries.
For comparison, Bali, which is a sixth of Hainan size, received more than 5 million foreign tourists over the same period, the South China Morning Post reported. The Chinese government said in a document published last week that it would “encourage the development of beach sports, water sports, horse races and other projects, and support the creation of a national demonstration of sport tourism and large-scale international events.” Official encouragement of gambling in Hainan can turn the island into a version of Las Vegas, said Mark Dreyer, a Beijing journalist.
A mind-controlled car performed at a university in China
A car is handled only with mind power was tested Wednesday China news agency Xinhua, stating that this kind of vehicle will target especially people with motor disabilities and that will occur when the market is still distant.
Conducted by researchers at Nankai University in Tianjin (Northeast China) in collaboration with car manufacturer Great Wall Motor vehicle captures the user’s brain impulses via 16 sensors, analyzes them and forward processing system, which interprets them as commands to accelerate or to brake or maneuver the doors.
This project joins other similar initiatives, such as the construction of vehicles moving without a driver, EFE notes. Google has been working for a long time for this purpose, and the Chinese company Baidu announced last month that it hopes to launch its own version before the end of the year, writes Agerpres .
