The Chinese civilization is one of the oldest in the world, and these photos will prove it is also one of the most beautiful.

If it's your first time visiting China, then Beijing, Shanghai, and Xian are a must-see. The famous Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Summer Palace are found in Beijing; Shanghai is a world-renowned metropolis with a stunning skyline; and Xian, on the Yellow River, is home to the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses of Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

I wish it looked as nice as this when I was there. In all reality, it's very crowded.

Those are Cormorant birds used to swoop into the water to catch the fish. They have metal rings around their gullet to prevent them from swallowing their catch. Cormorant fishing is a night time activity and the boats are far less picturesque. This is a posed photo. Inaccurate, but beautiful.
