Shanghai is China’s most comprehensive industrial and commercial city, ranking the first in population and population density. As a tourist city, it attracts travelers from both home and abroad by its commercial activity rather than scenic beauty. Shanghai is situated on the bank of the Yangtze River Delta, with East China Sea in the east and Hangzhou delta in the south. Housing a population of over 16 million at present, it was once a small town supported by fishing and weaving before the first Opium War. Late in 1990, the central government started developing the area, and has since become the well-known booming metropolis city.

Suzhou is located in the center of the Yangtze Delta, in the south of Jiangsu Province, with Shanghai to the east, Zhejiang Province to the south, Wuxi City to the west and the Yangtze River to the north. Since 42% area of the city is covered by water, including a vast number of ponds and streams, Suzhou is praised as the ‘Oriental Venice’. Taihu Lake, four fifths of which is in the territory of Suzhou, is one of the four largest fresh lakes in China, with East Hill, West Hill and other scenic spots in its vicinity. The city is cut by the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal from north to south. Together with its mild climate, making it an available destination all year round, fertile landscape and abundance of produce, it is no wonder that Suzhou is called ‘paradise on earth’.

Mt. Huangshan (literally Yellow Mountain ) is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. The area is very famous for its scenic beauty, which lies in the peculiar shapes of the granite peaks, in the weather-shaped Huangshan Pine trees, and in views of the clouds from above. The area also has hot springs and natural pools. Huangshan sceneries are a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature. The Huangshan mountain range comprises many peaks, 77 of which exceed 1,000m in altitude. Since the Qin Dynasty, Huangshan had been known as the Yishan. It got its present name in 747 AD, when the poet Li Po referred to it by this name in his writing. Huangshan has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990 for its exceptional natural beauty and its role as a habitat for rare and threatened species.

Activities

Ancient Street of Tunxi

Description : Tunxi Ancient Street lies in the center of Tunxi district, where the municipality of Huangshan is located. The street with centuries-old history dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Emperor Huizong (1082-1135) moved his seat of government to Lin'an ( present Hangzhou ), when many architects and workmen were conscripted to construct the new capital. After returning to their hometown, they imitated the structural style to build architecture along the street; thus Tunxi Ancient Street was formed. Tunxi Ancient Street, became a distribution center for goods and materials to Huizhou during Ming and Qing dynasties. The street is paved with maroon flagstones with a total length of 1,273 m (about 1,392 yards), of which 895m (about 979 yards) is the pedestrian commercial street. Shops standing on both sides are generally of two or three stories high, which feature the local Anhui style of stone base, brick construction and tile roof. The layout of these ancient buildings commonly takes on the characteristic of shops in the front while residences or workshops are to the rear.

MT. Huangshan (Yellow Mountain)

Description : Huangshan Mountain in east China's Anhui province is one of Chinas ten best-known scenic spots, It is characterized by the four wonders, namely, odd-shaped pines, grotesque rock formation, seas of clouds and crystal-clear hot springs. Mount Huangshan is celebrated for having all the features of mountain scenery. Known as the No. 1 Mountain Under heaven, it features numerous imposing peaks (77 exceed an altitude of 1,000m), forests of stone pillars and evergreen sturdy pines; other features include grotesquely-shaped rocks (many of which are individually named, such as "pig-headed monk eating water melon"), waterfalls, pools and hot springs.

Xu Xiake, a noted Chinese geologist and traveler in Ming Dynasty, praised Huangshan Mountain as the best of all mountains. Mount Huangshan was listed as one of the World Natural and Cultural Heritages in 1990. In Huangshan, pines and rocks are intimately involved with each other, almost every rock has a pine tree growing out of the crevice, and every tree has tortuous and gnarled roots and branches.The still sea of snow-white cloud can suddenly begin to roll and toss, rise or fall, gather or disperse while the peaks emerge and disappear in the clouds like isles in the ocean. So from ancient times it has been frequented by tourists seeking their mystery and admiring their frequented by tourists seeking their mystery and admiring their scenery. They come to the conclusion that the fantastic pines, the grotesque rocks, the sea of clouds and the hot springs are the four major attractions of the Yellow Mountains. As a matter of fact there are marvels almost everywhere, especially in the following scenic areas: Wenquan (Hot Spring), Yupinglou (Jade Screen Tower), Xihai ( West Sea), Beihai (North Sea), Yungusi (Cloud Valley Temple) and Songgu'an (Pine Valley Nunnery).

Xidi and Hongcun

Description : Xidi is a village in southeastern Yixian County in Anhui province, which was declared a part of the "Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui" World Heritege Site by UNESCO in 2000 along with the village of Hongcun. Xidi was first built during the reign of emperor Huangyou during the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD) and was originally called Xichuan ( West River ), because of the water courses which flow through the village. The street pattern of Xidi is dominated by a main road which runs in east-west direction and is flanked by two parallel streets. These major streets are joined by many narrow alley ways. The village is famous for the 300 simple, yet graceful, Ming and Qing dynasty residences, of which 124 are well preserved with beautiful carvings and ornamentation. Hongcun is a village located near the southwest slope of Mt. Hangshan in Yixian County. The whole village was originally laid out in the shape of an ox. The spring in the center of the village was made into a pond, which was called the "Moon Pond" and regarded as the stomach of the ox. A 400-meter-long canal was dug to lead the water of the river at the western end of the village to the east. This canal runs zigzag through the village, being regarded as the intestines of the ox. The running water flows in the winding ditches to every household, and is finally gathered in a little lake at the entrance of the village. Hongcun earned great fame for its water-supply system. The waterways of the village were supposed to be designed to provide a source of washing and drinking water, and in case of emergency to extinguish the fire.
