CHINA

In the words of Helen Keller "The best and most beautiful things in the world must be felt with the heart." We need to feel China, an ethnically defined nation with five thousand years of history with our heart. China, a modernized but not westernized country, is shaped by history and culture.

The third largest country in the world with an area of 9.6 million sq. km, China has a coastline that extends over 18,000 km. Not only is the country endowed by nature with spectacular views, the ancient industrious people has gifted the country with wonders like the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors and Forbidden city. With a map like a rooster, this country has a varied landform encompassing rugged plateaus, foothills, mountains and deserts that display unique beauty and is dotted with numerous picturesque lakes and rivers. It is home to a profound variety of flora and fauna. The universally loved Giant Panda is endemic to China.

The people's longing for aesthetic beauty is represented by beautiful art of pottery, sculpting, paintings, calligraphy, embroidery, folk toys and paper-cutting.

Chinese cuisine culture is characterized by diversified cooking material, special seasoning and featured cooking method and is undoubtedly one of the finest cuisines in the world.

China is a land of many traditional festivals- Lantern Festival, Dragon Boat Festival and Shoton Festival just to name a few. Traditional Chinese Medicine, one of the oldest healing systems on the planet has been in continuous practice for thousands of years. Acupuncture, qi gong and tai chi practices had been healing people for thousands of years and are used in the USA as a complementary health approach.
