Welcome To China

Experience the real China.

China's landscape is so versatile and impressive that it led over the centuries to the development of an own school of painting, the Shanshui, which tries to transfer these incredible impressions on canvas. This may not seem surprising, considering that China is the fourth largest country in the world and includes 18 climate zones. Its deepest point is the Turpan Depression which is 154m below sea level, and its highest point is the Mount Everest at 8.848 meters above sea level on the Tibetan plateau at the border to Nepal. In addition, vast rivers cross the country, with the Yangtze being the longest (6.380km). River and mountains side by side, giving Shanshui its name, is a distinctive feature of Chinese landscapes. It provides sensations, which may only be gained in a handful of countries outside of China. China's landscapes are so diverse that we can only give a brief overview of the most famous ones.

Due to the size of China and its different climate zones that grow quite different spices and herbs, there are up to 500 local cuisines. Local people are always very proud of their regional cuisine and will make every effort to convince a foreigner of its excellence. Again, do not worry: you will hear of many extravagant or exotic dishes in China, many of which you can certainly get. However, most of the main ingredients are by no means unusual.

The Chinese regional cuisines are a result of the local climate and the influence of other cultures. Thus, the traditional ingredients in the Northeast with its climate so similar to Europe differ from other parts of China. The regional cuisines are difficult to divide clearly into strict categories because there are no fixed definitions. You will also find influences of other regional cuisines and Western national cuisines all over China: You are not bound to the taste of the region.

Based on crime rates China is one of the safest countries in the world. According to the security consulting agency Control Risks, China is as safe as Europe.

This is certainly a result of the strict legislation in China: firearms, gambling, prostitution, and pornography are prohibited. In addition, many crimes are punishable by the death penalty, including, but not limited to murder, tax evasion, drug trafficking, or rape.

Additionally the collectivistic influenced Chinese society perceives deviations from the behavioral norm often as undesirable, an aspect not shared by Western cultures. This also reflects in the crime rate. The U.S. has a four times larger murder rate than China. The ratio of inmates to general population is six times higher in the U.S. Also the ratio of police force to general population is three times higher in the U.S.

If you follow the same rules of conduct regarding your safety like at home, you should expect nothing bad to happen.
