By:Jeremy C.

Over the years China has really opened up to the Western world. This means that vacations in China do not necessarily have to be taken only in Beijing. For those who want to spend time in this fascinating land, vacation packages at reasonable prices are being offered by a growing number of travel agencies. Therefore traveling to China has become increasingly popular. A place that was once hidden from the Western world is now open to vacation travelers.

For those who plan to spend their vacations in China there are a lot of sightseeing attractions at a variety of destinations across the country. The Beijing-Xian-Shanghai tour is the most common tour package that a majority of tourists purchase. You get to discover and get a glimpse of the historical city of Beijing with this tour package. You can even get a tour of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda in Xian, Terracotta Army and finally explore cosmopolitan Shanghai's shopping streets.

Monuments and historical sights like the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the National Museum and the main attraction, the Great Wall, all make the country's capital of Beijing quite popular. In order to learn about the culture and history of the country, the National Museum has a lot of materials that are worth seeing. The Opera in the capital city is where you can get a taste of roast duck, the special delicacy of the place.

To get an idea of what Shanghai looks like you can just imagine New York. It features a blend of old styled buildings and modern skyscrapers even though it is one of the oldest cities of the country. Pudong, the North Eastern section of this financial hub, is where the skyscrapers are situated while the old styled architecture can be found at Puxi. The beauty of Shanghai is in fact brought out by this contrast which makes it truly stand out.

If you are in Shanghai you will not want to miss destinations such as the Oriental Pearl Tower, which is really worth visiting, the famous Nanjing Road which is the best place in the area for shopping and the French Concession area where you can just take a stroll along the streets. If you want to get a glimpse of the Terracotta Warriors and Army, which is considered as the eighth wonder of the world, then you need to travel to the ancient imperial city Xian.

This country is definitely one of the ideal vacation destinations of the world. When it comes to China there is a lot that can be done and seen, so be sure to consider vacations in China.
