China is a big country with more than a billion people and its cities are densely populated, energetic and vibrant. Beijing, the capital city, is the political, cultural and historical
center with Shanghai and Hong Kong as the economic nerve centers of what is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
If you have a vision of China which revolves around Maoist revolutionaries dressed in buttoned tunics exercising in Tiananmen Square then you are in for a surprise during your
China study tour. Modern China is more about MTV and T-shirts with English slogans slashed across the chest rather than the revolutionary slogans of the Cultural Revolution.
China is also one of the oldest civilizations and has more history to offer than one can imagine. Apart from the Great Wall, The Forbidden City in Beijing never fails to fascinate those who travel to China for study abroad. In your spare time you can also explore the natural landscapes of
China. Other places of interest that you would not like to miss are the waterfalls, gorges, underground caverns and limestone pinnacles of the Yunnan-Guizhbou Plateau - the 'Oasis of Fire' (the Turpan Depression) and the shifting salt lakes of the Taklamakan Desert in Inland China.
