The Qinghai-Tibet railway, dubbed the railway on the "roof of the world", is proving to be stiff competition for regional bus companies and it's encouraging a lot more people to go home for the Spring Festival holidays. News from Paul:
I think Apart from Great Wall and Yangtsee river, there are many places that are worth visiting in China. Si`an ,the capital of Shaanxi Province ,is one of the most famous cities in ancient China with a long history. It was the capital city of China for more than 1100 years in 13 different dynasties. Beijing , another historical city in China , is still the capital of since 1421 . Shanghai ,which developed very quickly recently, is the symbol of modern China. Besides , there are also amazing natural beauties in China. One of them is called Jiuzhaigou (Nine-Village Gully) which is a scenic spot tucked away in the depth of mountains at Jiuzhaigou County, a county in the northern part of Sichuan Province. It is 470 kilometres away from Chengdu, the provincial capital, with an elevation of about 2500 metres. The scenic spot actually consists of three major gullies, spread over a total area of 60000 hectares, which formerly was the site of nine stockaded villages of Tibetans. Hence the name Jiuzhaigou. Jiuzhaigou is well-known for its network of alpine lakes, spectacular waterfalls and wonderful vegetation.
