In the movie Karate Kid filmed in 2010 starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, it shows how a person from a foreign land gets to know oneself from China. Dre Parker, played by Jaden Smith was a defenseless and a mediocre athlete from the urban land of United States of America. He was bullied and beaten down by some of his classmates when he transferred to China. But, he was able to defeat them with honor when Mr. Han, played by Jackie Chan, toured him around China and taught him one of the most elegant contributions of Chinese to the world, which is Kung Fu.
The movie is quite accurate in representing Chinese culture and tradition. China has a rich breadth of culture and it is one of the Four Ancient Civilizations with a history of over 3,000 years. Moreover, it has an impressive ancient heritage, specifically its architectural designs and monumental ancient treasures. Other than that, China is blessed with spectacular wonders of nature with fresh breeze coming out of the mountains and trees that are greener than any one could think.
Aside from that, every region in China has its own unique dishes. So, even if your trip would only be limited to one region, at least, you have a chance to taste what is their region’s specialty! Some specialties you should try are Beijing roast duck, Shanghainese soup dumplings, spicy hotpot in Chengdu, and rice noodles in Guilin.

To top of the list, the first thing that pops in someone’s head when they hear “China” might be “The Great Wall of China”. This is one of the most iconic symbols of China. It is the longest wall in the world stretching over 5,000 kilometers. It is a sight that is never to miss when you are in China.
If you are in to something spooky, the Terracotta Army might be sight to see. It is laid underground for more than 2,000 years. It is significant because hundreds of life-size models represent the army that triumphed all other Chinese armies.
The Forbidden City in Beijing is majestic and aesthetically pleasing as well. It was once a palace city wherein ordinary people where forbidden to enter. It has more than 8,000 rooms with roofs in gold that are elegantly designed and painted red and yellow. Over 24 emperors lived in the Forbidden City. It is also recognized as one of the most important places in the world along with Palace of Versailles in France, Buckingham Place in the UK, and the White House in the US. Perhaps, entering this place might make you fell a tad bit of a royalty.
