Overview


Travelers’ Tales China is a must for any traveler to China, to anyone wanting to learn more about the Middle Kingdom, offering a breadth and depth of experience from both new and well-known authors, and helps make the China experience unforgettable and transforming. These pages take you through 6,000 years of history to modern-day socialist China, from the Silk Road to the high-tech center of Beijing. Explore the old as well as the new—from the tombs of dead emperors to the world’s largest dam. Roam around one of China’s 700 nature preserves in a country that boasts more wildlife than any other in the world. Wander the vastness of the Gobi Desert and skirt the darkness of history while exploring the assault on Nanking, and be shaken by observations of death during the upheavals of the Red Guard. Go riding with Ghengis Khan, explore the Forbidden City, and walk along sections of the Great Wall that are seldom visited. You can taste and smell the food as it is cooked in alleys and inns, reach down and touch relics older than most of Europe, and enjoy the sights and the sounds of the Dragon Boat Festival.

    mostly a joy

    This is a jumble of candid, high-spirited adventures. It's mostly a joy to read, whether it's motorcycling across the Gobi Desert, boxing in the ring at a Beijing fight club, or just waiting till dawn in train stations. The writers note hard realities all around, but enjoying the ride is the main thing.

    good stuff

    This book has many fascinating stories in it. One of my favorites in it is by Arthur Zich, who chronicles his ride down the Yangtze river from Chongching to the not-yet-finished Three Gorges Dam. It makes u angry and amazed at the scale and brevity of that project. A nice book to read if you want to travel to China or if you want to learn more about it besides what you hear in the news.
