Typical tour of China: Beijing, The Great Wall, the terra cotta warriers in Xi'an, the Three Gorges and Shanghai.
My recent China itinerary: Whenzhou; Wencheng County; ancient villages of Furong, Yantou and Cangpo; and in Sichuan Province, ChengDu, two National Parks in Jiuzhaigou Valley and Huanglong, a UNESCO site in the Tibetan plateau and the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base.
The large, manufacturing city of Whenzou is not a tourist center but they welcome them, especially Westerners.

|Try on costumes at the Kun Qu Opera House.|
|Ming dynasty era Linkeng Village.|
Urbane, colorful and sophisticated, ChengDu, a city of more than 14 million, is the Shanghai of Southwest China.
