China: Many worlds in one!

Tourism between China and India can work like oriental magic.

It can make all things possible.

It can entwine our countries through interaction and understanding.

It can bring about a constant exchange of ideas and open new avenues of trade.

It can cement the three thousand year relationship between two of the world’s oldest civilizations.

Tourism can do all of these things if all of us work together – as one.

An ancient Chinese proverb says: “Don’t open a shop unless you like to smile.”

The Chinese people have taken this to heart. That’s what makes China so riveting, so inviting.

Everyone smiles in China. Shopkeepers. Cab drivers. Waitresses. Caddies. Dancers. Singers.


When people traveled to China in ancient times, the philosopher Lao Tzu said: “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”

What he meant was China has so many distractions, so many attractions, that travelers often forget their final destination.

That’s true even today.

If you travel to China for shopping, you could end up playing golf.

If you travel to China for golf, you could end up frolicking in the snow.

If you travel to China for the snow, you could end up learning Kung Fu.

If you travel to China for Kung Fu, you could end up in a nightclub.

If you travel to China for pleasure, you could end up in a Buddhist monastery.

If you travel to China to see the relics of the past, you could end up taking a cruise on the Mekong River.

The diversity of China makes it the most exciting travel destination in the world, especially for us Indians.

For us, China is only a few hours away and it has everything to offer: Pleasure. Leisure. Sport. Sightseeing. History. Mountains. Beaches. Shopping. Education.

If it’s in your heart, it’s in China.

  1. That is so true – China has so much to offer. It is a large country too so that in itself is an obvious reason why it has so much diversity. But I was so completely surprised at what I was able to find there, so much more than what I expected.

  2. I would love to visit China soon. I think it has so many different things to offer that it should be on every bucket list. Would love to see the pandas and check out Kung Fu (and probably not end up in a night club 🙂

  3. “Don’t open a shop unless you like to smile.” – This is so true. There are a lot of businesses here in the Philippines which are owned by Chinese. They really put a lot of effort in encouraging customers to be loyal to their brand and services.
    I hope that I can visit China someday. There are so many things to do there. I am also interested to see the progress of China over the past few years.

  4. I know one day I can visit the mainland China. It’s so frustrating that it’s so hard to enter to China well at least for Filipinos. But I already had a taste of Hongkong and Macau. I wouldn’t stop until I reach the mainland 🙂 Thanks for an encouraging article 🙂


  5. China is an amazing place to travel and experience as well as I would like to say a great place to shop many things at a cheap rate the things that we get in India are mostly coming from China and really going on visiting China helps you buy those things on your own and it’s an amazing experience all together even the food in China is really nice and the locations are really beautiful as well.

  7. I have been to China 2-3 times but after reading this you’ve inspired me to visit again. I think I’d go to play golf next time which could mean I’ll be frolicking in the snow. I’ve never been to Tibet but the Lhasa image you posted is inspiring me to go!


  8. To be honest, I spent three months in India, but China wasn’t on top of my travel destinations until I read your blog post and saw your stunning pictures! WOW! I might have to add China to my list now 🙂

  9. “If it’s in your heart, it’s in China.” Love this sign off. Certainly, as someone who is currently living in China at the moment, I have to agree that there are no end of possibilities in the country and this only looks set to increase with the development of the tourist industry. Looking forward to seeing how this sector develops in the next few years
