The People's Republic of China is the country with the largest number of inhabitants in the world. Because it is so big by area, it is a country of many faces. While you can find the majestic Himalaya mountains in the southwest, you can visit metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai in the east.

Besides, on the border with Laos and Vietnam, you can find stunning rain forests that make the country even more attractive. In the ninth century, Arab tradesmen came to China via the Silk Road. They introduced the country to Islam, particularly the south coast. This is also the place where most mosques were built. In the 17th century, Islam was suppressed- for instance, the hajj was forbidden- but nowadays the Chinese state is very considerate towards its Islamic inhabitants.

Over the last few decades, since the country's economic reforms, China has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Tourists come to China to visit the big attractions such as the Silk Road and the Chinese Wall. The big cities are very popular too, and in the northeast you can even go skiing!Because of the large size of the country, it is a good idea to spend at least a few weeks to discover China, or to limit yourself to a particular area.

Also bear in mind that not everybody speaks English, except in the big cities. But once you have made the decision to visit this powerful country, it will definitely become an unforgettable experience!
