With a several thousand year old history China offers exciting traditions, culture and fantastic sights. The Chinese wall is possibly the first thing that comes to mind. But there are a number of spectacular sights: The Forbidden City, Tian'anmen Square (Gate of Heavenly Peace), the Summer Palace and more. China is one of the largest countries in the world, to its area just about as big as the USA and with one-fifth of the world's population. Something that the Chinese area looking forward to is the Olympic Summer Games, which are arranged in Beijing in 2008 and all preparations are since long in full swing.
