Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always wanted to visit China. My uncle lived in that country for several years, and has raved about it ever since. My only exposure to Chinese culture is through Americanized versions of their food found across the United States. I had to see the country for myself, which is why I made it one of my first stops while visiting the continent. Here are my highlighted travel hot spots in eastern Asia:
If you do not know what the view of Victoria Harbor from Victoria Peak looks like, then you need to check it out right here. Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings are something every tourist needs to see for themselves. The city is home to nearly 8,000 high-rise structures, which are incredible to look at from a distance.
This was one of the prettiest sights I have seen in my entire life. Being able to fit Hong Kong, the water, and Beijing in one vantage point is truly amazing! If I could offer one piece of advice, I’d say go to Victoria Peak at night. The high-rise buildings really pop with the bright lights.
Great Wall Of China
Of course, no trip to China would be complete without a stop at the Great Wall in Beijing. As everyone knows, this is the longest wall built in the entire world. While the Wall itself is a great view, the surrounding areas are pretty incredible too. The wall winds through every terrain imaginable. You will see mountains and deserts all throughout your climb.
But don’t walk too quickly! Take in the sights! While the views outside of the wall are breathtaking, don’t forget to pay close attention to every inch of the wall. Several pieces of the wall have worn away due thousands of years of use. While I am unsure if you can see the wall from space, it sure looks great on earth!
