A Top Ten Of China Is Just A Start. What Else Do You Suggest?


A Top Ten Of China Is Just A Start. What Else Do You Suggest?

Who doesn’t like top tens? They reel me in all the time, but they have their limitations. We all know China could fill up top ten lists in its sleep, so the one compiled over at National Geographic Traveler really doesn’t do the place justice.

I’m always up for some China info. So, I turn to you, TheExpeditioner readers, to throw some spice at this list and “step it up a notch” — Emeril style. With loads of your own travel expertise, share your favorite spots from China in the comment section below, or tell us what you think of the list so far.

To get a start, the first ten usual suspects are . . . The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tian’anmen Square, Xi’an, Temple of Heaven, Terra Cotta Warriors, Shanghai, Hong Kong Island, Stone Forest, and (a place I want to get to despite being overrun with tourists) Lijiang. I’ll offer up the Ruinas de Sao Paulo Cathedral and surrounding neighborhood in Macau for a distinctly Portuguese getaway.
