I knew that my first trip to mainland China would only scratch the most superficial of surfaces. China exists on a scale all of its own. The incredible size of the country along with everything there is to see and do conspire to make it impossible to explore it all on a single trip. No, I imagine a lifetime – or even multiple lifetimes – would be necessary to properly appreciate everything that China has to offer, but I didn’t have multiple lifetimes to devote on my first visit. No, I had a very limited amount of time but I was determined to make the most of it. I spent a lot of time researching and thinking about how best to prioritize my first experience in China and while I know it’s very basic and even elementary, it’s also how I think many first-time visitors experience the country. With all of that in mind, here are just some of my favorite photos from my China experience, photos that I hope share the feeling of excitement I still feel today from this remarkable adventure.

We have never been to China and still unsure if we will go. However your photos sum up what we imagiane China to be like. The pictures of the food and the amazingly cute Panda’s are selling it to us ???? We imagine there is so much to gain from visiting but we also imagine it maybe very hard aswell.
Well come to China!! Every foreign visitor to China is overwhelmed by the kindness, charm, and hospitality of the people.With the developing of economy , more and more Chinese want to be known by the world . The most universal phenomenon is that kids from primary school must learn English(as important as Chinese) , And English will accompany their whole learning career.
Your photos of China are beautiful and brought back many good memories I had when I was there. I have been fortunate to have been able to travel to China 3 times and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.
Looks interesting, nice pics. Where did you see the pandas? in the wild?
