China Travel Guide - Travel in Sichuan

   Mount Emei
Mount Emei
(é méi shān 峨眉山) is located in Leshan City (lè shān shì 乐山市) of Sichuan Province (sì chuān shěng 四川省). It is one of the four Buddhist holy mountains in China, as the other three are the Wutai Mountain (wǔ tái shān 五台山) in Jiangxi Province (jiāng xī shěng 江西省), Mount Putuo (pǔ tuó shān 普陀山) in Zhejiang Province (zhè jiāng shěng 浙江省) and Jiuhua Mountain (jiǔ huá shān 九华山) in Anhui Province (ān huī shěng 安徽省). Because the shape of the mountain is like the eyebrow of a beautiful girl, the mountain is called Emei. The rich Buddhist culture connotation and the unique natural scenery make the mountain enlisted in the world heritage by the UNESCO in 1996.

China Travel Guide - Travel in Taiwan

Taiwan
Sitting pretty as one of Asia’s best-kept travel secrets, the spicy, scenic island of Taiwan (tái wān 台湾) makes a habit of smashing visitor preconceptions. Outsiders tend to see it as somewhere notable only for its technological prowess, an image consistently reinforced by the global prominence of “Made in Taiwan” stickers. The fuller picture, however, is a destination that serves up awe-inspiring panoramas, a rainbow of different cultures and a startlingly rich history.

Learn Chinese - History and Culture

altChina is wondrous and awe-inspiring. It has a history of five thousand years. It is the only continuous ancient civilization. Other ancient civilizations have changed, discontinued, withered or perished. Why is it so enduring? Why is it so coherent, often sticking to itself, remaining undivided? Why is it so dynamic, always able to revive, regenerate and revitalize itself? Why is it an immortal phoenix able to rise again on its ashes? These are enduring questions. Nobody can give a complete answer, full stop. They will stimulate intellect, provoke interest, and engage investigation.

It is mysterious, even inscrutable. What is Tao (dào 道) and Taoism (dào jiào 道教)? What is non-action, non-exertion, nongovernmental in Taoism? What is the Yin-Yang theory? What is the Five-Element theory? How can a little steel needle relieve pain and cure illnesses? Is Qigong (qì gōng 气功) the

Philip: The Cantonese Can Just Get It Done
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China
Impressed by the practical and highly efficient production environment and lured by the local cuisine, the 49-year-old says that Guangzhou will always hold a special place in his heart. 
 
Philip Richardson
Take a moment to imagine this scene. 
 
A man. A water buffalo. The man is using the beast to till the earth on a patch of farmland in Panyu District. The year? Some time around 1998 or 1999. The man is, at the same time, talking on a cell phone. An ordinary farmer? Perhaps, but unlikely. Parked nearby is a Mercedes-Benz SL500 into which the man, upon finishing his work, throws various tools and equipment before getting himself in and driving off. 
 
This was one of 's earliest memories of China and Guangzhou. He muses that the man may have been a stock trader who just enjoyed farming as a therapeutic outlet, a way to relax and connect with the land. It would certainly explain the expensive car and seems to embody the image of a quickly modernizing China that, at the same time, does not wish to forget its roots.
