Home – introducing China

Our website provides general information for those who want to travel independently in China. We also present an introduction for others who would like to know more about the vast country.

China is not a scary place. Far from it, foreigners are greeted with a blend of curiosity (diminishing as foreigners become more and more commonplace in the cities), occasionally caution, but mostly with either urban indifference or warm hospitality.

The country has four thousand years of continuous civilization, with its unique culture flourishing during long periods, and its technologies spreading westward.
