Want to visit the gorgeous new “Bird’s Nest” Olympic stadium in Beijing? Or the famous riverside bund in Shanghai ? Or the ancient Terracotta Army in Xian?
Beware, it is not always easy to plan a trip to China…
First of all, China is developing and changing very quickly – lots of information on travel websites and guidebooks are out of date. In the past few years countless fancy shopping malls have popped up all over the country, interesting hip new art districts have spontaneously started growing from within abandoned factories, countless additional subway lines have opened, and so on.
Secondly, there are very few good and current travel-oriented english online maps of Chinese cities. Worse still, some of the online maps available on the major travel guide websites mark many well known attractions at the wrong locations.
For the above reasons and many other problems that I found with China travel websites, I decided to create Fun Tourist Attractions to give China travelers useful, interesting, accurate and up to date information about the best places to visit in China. There are labeled, interactive english maps of Chinese cities with pictures – e.g. the Shanghai map and the Beijing map.
You can browse hundreds of interesting videos of the top attractions in China – e.g. Beijing attractions videos. There are also many attraction pictures to give people a better feel of what the places are like, and attractions names and addresses in chinese that you can use to ask locals for directions. Check it out and feel free to send me comments, questions or suggestions using the contact form on the website!
