A.GeographicChina is the world's forth-largest nation. Located in Eastern Asia with Russia and Mongolia to the north, India to the southwest, and Vietnam and Laos to the southeast. China has a total land area of 3,695,500 square miles. Its capital lies at Beijing, while China's largest city is Shanghai. China boast some 14,500 km of coastline. Its climate is extremely diverse. It ranges from subarctic in the north to tropical in the south. China's terrain is perhaps as diverse as its climate. While mostly mountainous, China has vast plains, deltas and deserts.
