The Silk Road is a collection of several ancient trade routes that linked Roman Empire in the west with the imperial court of China in the East. Before the discovery of the sea route to India, the Silk Road was the most important connection between the Orient and the West which still remains its charm to people.

Walking through Xinjiang, brave ancient merchants and traveler could go eastward continuously until they arrive at Rome. For hundreds of years the dusty caravan roads were traveled by merchants: silk was carried westward, while wool, gold, silver exotic birds and animals were carried eastward. With the fall of Rome, the route became unsafe.

China History

Before your travel China, you’d better to know something like China history and Chinese Culture, I am sure that will make your China travel more convenient and make you better learn Chinese people. Well, it’s known to all that China has a long history, as long as 5000 years. Now, I will give a bief introduction about China history. Hope that will be helpful.

Emperor Huang (Huangdi) is regarded as our Chinese people’s ancestor. He defeated the leader of the other tribe, Emperor Yan, and established the first country in China. So we Chinese often say ourselves: descendents of Yan and Huang.

After Emperor Huang, China went through 3 Dynasties, Xia Dynasty, Shang Dynasty and Zhou Dynasty. That was the initial stages of Chinese culture and civilization. And it is between 2070BC TO 770 BC.That was slavery society.

After Zhou Dynasty, China was broken up into many small countries. That was the famous Spring and Autumn Period and Warring States Period. It is an important period in Chinese history because the great ancient Chinese philosopher, Confucius and the strategist Sunzi , were born in this time. Their thought and words affect Chinese people throughout 2000 years history and until now. In this period, there was another great person- Emperor Qinshihuang the first person who unified the whole country, to order to build Great Wall, established the first great empire in China with the capital in today’s Xi’an. If you have chance to make a Xian tour, you must visit the world famous terracotta warriors, which was the funerary art for him.

Qin Dynasty was established in 221BC. From then on, China entered into the feudal society. And the feudal system lasted more than 2000 years, until 1911, the father of the nation, Sunyason lead the revolution, overthrew the Qing Dynasty and established the Republic of China.

After Qin Dynasty, China enters to Han and Tang Dynasty. In this period, China reached the unprecedented flourish time. The prosperity of Tang Dynasty made Chinese culture and civilization broadcast to Japan, Korean, and Southeast Asia, finally formed the brilliant East Asia Civilization. In Tang Dynasty, many Japanese scholars come to learn Chinese character, culture and technique, and bring them back. That’s why many Japanese characters are same or similar to Chinese characters, and also you can find the culture similar in some way.

After Tang Dynasty, China was broken up again. In that period, there were several states existed in the territory in the same time. Later, one of the states-Mongolian tribe conquered the whole country, established Yuan Dynasty. The famous leader, Genghis Khan, is the founder of Yuan Dynasty. Many foreigners regarded him as the counterpart to Napoleon, the famous Emperor and General in Europe. Beijing became the national capital just from Yuan Dynasty. The famous local residential areas-Hutongs were build in Yuan Dynasty.

In the late of Yuan, Han people established Ming Dynasty, the famous forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, and the shape of the Beijing Old city were all formed in Ming Dynasty. The Great Wall in Beijing area is also built in Ming Dynasty.

In the late of Ming Dynasty, Manchuness established the latest dynasty in China, Qing Dynasty. In the end of Qing Dynasty, China went to the worst period when the feudal officials were corruptive, the life of people was suffering, and the country was weak and unstable. Besides, they also had to face the invading of alien armies. Until 1911, Dc. Sun Yat-son lead the revolution, overthrows the Qing Dynasty, ended the feudal society in China, and established the Republic of China and the party of Guomintang. Later China suffered 8 years war against Japanese Army, then 3 years inner war between Guomintang and Communist Party. In End, the Communist Party succeeded and established the People’s Republic of China. That is the present China, while Guomintang went to the Taiwan province.

Acute Mountain Sickness In Tibet

Tibet Tour is full of mysterious and unique culture, attracting all the guests from the world coming to join. It is one of the most adventurous, scenically stunning and physically demanding tours in the world. Touring Tibet, meeting it’s people, learning about its culture, visiting the majestic Potala Palace and beautiful Norbulingka Park, or trekking up to the Mt. Everest Base camp…all of these items made Tibet travel as one of dreams in one’s life. However, not everyone has the chance to fulfill their dreams.

The first and the most important obstacle is the Mountain Sickness. Acute Mountain Sickness is an illness that can affect mountain climbers, hikers, skiers or travelers who climb too fast. It usually occurs when people rapidly reach a high altitude (typically above 8,000 feet or 2,400 meters). Due to the decreasing availability of oxygen, it is very common to occur at high altitudes. Since most places in Tibet are higher than 3000 meters, most people will experience one or more AMS symptoms upon their arrival in Tibet, including headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and disturbed sleep.

So, it is a pity for people who have problems like anemia or hypertension, heart problems, respiratory problems and other illness of lungs, liver or kidney. These kind of people should not travel Tibet.And for people who are suitable to make a tour in Tibet,also need do something to avoid the AMS. You’d better do don’t do strenuous exercises, avoid alcohol and drink extra fluids and eat more vegetable and fruit.

Highlights of China Tour

China is a destination that has simply so much to offer its visitors who often return home with unforgettable memories of this unique country. The different regions and cities of China have their own unique selection of sights and sounds that would fascinate you regardless of whether you are into nature, architecture, culture, shopping or food. To plan your China tour well and select the right tour for you, you have to figure out what you are most keen to see in your limited time there. While there can be infinite possibilities on where you can choose to tour, here are my recommendations for three must-see places.

A. Touring the majestic Great Wall of China

Great Wall is no doubt one of China’s most visited and much raved about destinations. The sheer grandeur of the longest defense wall in the world, and the fact that it was constructed over several dynasties is sure to impress you if you have not seen it up close. You can visit a number of sections of the Great Wall which have been opened to public access, each possessing its own unique scenery. The Badaling section is probably the most visited by tourists due to it being accessible via only an hour’s drive from the capital Beijing. The terrain is generally friendly for walking, while the views from the top are simply incomparable. If you are rugged and adventurous, you can take a hike between the Simitai and Jinshanling sections which also offer stunning views. However you have to overcome some rough and steep terrain.

B. Take an unforgettable Yangtze River Cruise Tour

You should take a cruise down the Yangtze River if you want to see some of the most majestic natural landscapes in China. You have a choice of cruising from Chongqing to Yichang. You will be treated to a plethora of wonderful scenery that you will not soon forget after your cruise. A Yangtze River cruise tour will not be complete without passing by the Three Gorges, which are appreciated not only for their aesthetic beauty, but also for their historical, cultural and religious background. The Three Gorges Dam is also a prominent sight that you cannot miss. To truly appreciate the Yangtze River, it is recommended that you also learn about its culture. One such opportunity would be the International Tourist Festival of Three Gorges in Chongqing in the month of June, which will be an educational and entertaining experience for visitors with its trade talks, folk art displays and performances.

C. Shanghai Tour – embrace history and modernity of China

If you want to experience urban life while having easy access to cultural and historical sites, Shanghai is the place for you. You will be impressed with the city’s eclectic blend of history and modernity, especially if you visit the following popular sights below. Showcasing the pinnacle of modern developments in the city, the Pudong area is home to two of the most impressive modern structures that you will ever see – the Oriental TV Tower and the Jinmao Tower. To revisit the city’s colourful past, what better place to tour than The Bund? Situated along the city’s waterfront, you will be fascinated by the famous row of colonial buildings which are ample reminders of a bygone era. To immerse yourself in a calm and relaxing atmosphere while admiring ancient architecture and relics, I recommend a visit to the Jade Buddha Temple. Here, you can marvel at the beauty of some notable relics including a collection of the finest jade Buddha statues
