If there is one thing that China is good at, it is preserving their traditions. For around 5000 years, China has successfully preserved their cultures and customs. From martial arts and philosophies all the way to the architecture and temples, China's values stand strong. It is quite amazing that a country can keep a wall up for thousands of years; but also their religions, fighting methods, and values stay the same as well. There is a strong sense of pride and hard work in the people of China that would pull one to their country. Also, stepping outside of the city and into rural China would be a good idea. China is one of the most beautiful places Earth has to offer.There are many places to visit in China; all of the sights could not be fit into one trip. Still, I have created a travel guide to help one that would be visiting there. For two people and a two week stay the trip would cost roughly $5000, and that is not counting souvenirs and other miscellaneous items. It is advised to have about $8,000 for this trip; all would probably not be used. Each single day will not be used to see different sights; there will be a lot of traveling while in China and each sight may take a few days. It is good to see all of what it has to offer and not just see one city. Some of the places to visit in China are the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta army, the Temple of Heaven, the Li River, and the Three Gorges. There is much more to China but that is all that can be squeezed into this trip.The first step of this trip will be obtaining a passport. A Passport is a document certifying your identity so you can legally visit different countries. A passport can be obtained at the local post office. The post office will have you apply for it, proof of United States citizenship and a photo ID will be needed to validate your passport. If you are a first time applicant, the passport will cost $55 and you will receive it in the mail within a few weeks. The next step is the flight, if you are flying from the United States, an almost full day of flight and around 7000 miles should be expected. Upon arrival, the long flight will be worth it.This trip will be a tour of China; it is not about just staying in one city. The sights of this trip will each receive a couple days' worth of your time. There will be many different hotels on this trip since there are so many different cities and areas to visit. The flight from the United States will be to Beijing, where the first few days of the trip will be spent. The first days will be spent touring Beijing and visiting the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, and the Great Wall. Beijing is a metropolis and capital of China. Beijing has been a city for 3000 years, and the capital of China for 850 years. Many of the buildings there are ancient and because of its age, there are many tourist spots.The first sight to see in Beijing would be the Forbidden City. The subway is usually taken to get to the City and...
