TIGER LEAPING GORGE

As there are several ecological zones in the region and there are different climatic zones, this is referred to as an ecological hotspot with an unusually large number of different species of plants and animal species living in the same region. In the gorge live some rare plants and animals. The Tigerspringen Gorge is a scenic and natural highlight.

DISTRICT 798

Named after the 798 factory built in the 1950s, the Art District 798 is located in the northeast corner of Beijing. 798 Art District covers an area of ​​60 hectares, the Jiuxianqiao Road in the west, the Beijing Baotou Railway in the east, the Jiangtai Road in the south and the Jiuxianqiao Road North in the north. Shaped by modern art, it has become an exhibition center for Chinese culture and art as well as the world-famous cultural and creative industries.

Gradually, a district with galleries, art studios, cultural businesses, fashion stores, etc. formed.

LODGES & LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATION

Season / Weather / Climate

The best time to visit China is usually in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to October), when the weather is pleasant in many parts of the country. China is huge, though. It stretches over 3,000 miles (5,000 km) and includes the highest plateau in the world as well as deserts, jungles, alpine rainforests and over a thousand kilometers of coastline. So the best time to visit depends on where you want to travel.

China attracts far fewer visitors in the colder months of November through March. Many of China’s highlights are more spectacular during the winter months. See the majestic Great Wall as it meanders through the distant, snow-capped peaks that stand out against a bright blue sky – without a soul far and wide.

China celebrates numerous holidays, which is why planes and trains are completely overcrowded by local residents. China has two Golden Weeks, Chinese New Year Week (January or February) and Chinese National Day Week (early October). During these two weeks, immense crowds of people are pouring through the land. Not only are prices skyrocketing, availability in hotels and restaurants is also scarce and attractions are bursting at the seams. Beijing, China’s capital, can be visited all year round. In the hot and humid summers (June to August) temperatures rise to about 30 ° C, the average temperatures are 21 ° C. These are also the wettest months with about 15 rainy days per month and up to 185mm of precipitation in July. Winters (December to February) are cold and dry with freezing temperatures over night and only a few degrees warmer during the day. However, many of Beijing’s world famous sites look particularly impressive in the snow, especially the impressive Forbidden City. Overall, spring (March to May) is one of the best times to visit. Dry days and pleasant temperatures make the city visit particularly pleasant. Stronger winds can cause sandstorms, but also improve air quality. The best time to visit is autumn (September and October), with average minimum temperatures around 15 ° C and peaks around 26 ° C. Shanghai is a humid city with humidity of 72% to 82%. During the summer (May to August) very hot and humid, Shanghai has a sultry atmosphere, which many find very attractive. Neon lights shimmer in the steaming heat of the monsoon and sudden downpours cool the air for a moment. In contrast, winter (December to February) is cold and dry, with temperatures below 0 ° C. Autumn (October and November) is a popular time to travel to Shanghai. Spring (March to May) is considered the best time to visit when the temperature is warm and there is less rainfall. The average highs rise in March from 13 ° C to 24 ° C in May. In Xian, the summer (July to August) is hot and humid with frequent storms. Autumn (September and October) is often overcast and rainy.

The summer is hot and wet with heavy rains in July and August, averaging over 200 mm per month and high humidity. The surrounding mountains offer recreation from the summer heat at this time of the year. The best time to visit is spring (March to May) and fall (September to November), when temperatures are mild and rainfall is lower. The southern sisters Guilin and Yangshuo enjoy the best climate in September and October. Even in winter, temperatures rarely fall below freezing, and a visit in November or December is rewarded with plenty of warm sunny days and fewer visitors. In summer, it rains from April to August, with average highs of 33 ° C in July and August. High in the mountains, most of Tibet is cold and dry. May to October is therefore the best time to visit. Temperatures fall in April, October and November and the number of visitors is decreasing, while in the icy winter from December to February almost no travelers can be found.

Time

China includes the Empire of China, the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China. Due to China’s large area, China is divided into 5 time zones. However, there is only one official standard time since 1949, the Chinese standard time. It is at UTC + 8, which puts China 8 hours ahead of world time. The Central European Time is 7.

Language

Chinese is spoken by more than 1 billion people. Mandarin is the most widely used language in China. In addition to the Mandarin, there are about 300 different languages ​​and dialects. The 300 Chinese dialects can be divided into larger language groups.

To eat and drink

As in Europe, you usually eat three meals a day in China. In contrast to Germany, Chinese food is eaten in the morning, at noon and in the evening. In the morning, there are usually Jiaozi (fried dumplings) or Baozi (steamed and stuffed bread dough), cooked or fried spaghetti-like pasta, noodle soup or rice soup. The German standard food bread is very little spread in China. In larger cities, however, you will find bread or pastries in every supermarket. However, the bread is often a sweet white bread. Therefore, other foods that are usually cold-distorted are not widely used in China. Any type of salad is known in China only from Western restaurants, be it pasta salad, potato salad or green salad.
